New Modem

Published by at 1:38 pm under Technology

I’ve had my own modem for quite some time. My ISP, Charter, has insisted on charging monthly fees so I opted to buy my own and save money in the long run.

I got a letter offering a free modem a few months ago. The documentation said there would be no monthly fees. So I went ahead and signed up for it.

The modem arrived about a month ago and I finally plugged it in today. I wish I could see a difference in speeds, but the old DOCSIS 2.0 modem worked just fine. My hope is Charter won’t insist on charging a monthly fee again at some point and will let me use this modem for free. I suspect they’ll change their mind at some point.

I’ve used Motorola modems for as long as I’ve had broadband. I was surprised when Charter sent me a Cisco modem. I wasn’t aware they made modems, only routers and switches.
