I'm one of those people who lives a frugal lifestyle, and I love to help others do the same. One of the biggest no-brainers is for the people who still rent their cable modems, especially from Comcast. Many people still assume that you have to rent, and Comcast certainly won't correct that assumption! I just saw this deal and I wanted to pass it along to those of you who are still paying $8 per month. Newegg (a very trusted online retailer) has a very good deal (ends today, 9/3) on a new cable modem for $30 shipped, after you enter the promotional code. Don't forget to enter the $20 off code at checkout, it's listed under the title on their website. After four months it'll have paid for itself, and you'll have an extra $8 to buy ammo Edited to add: There are a couple people this modem won't work for. Those on a plan higher than 50Mbps. Those with Comcast phone service (you need the modem they provide). Those with a Comcast modem/router combination (you need to buy a replacement router, too) If you're not sure, feel free to ask here. I'm sure myself or one of the other tech guys here will answer http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...5188005&cm_re=BRG35503-_-25-188-005-_-Product Cheers!
