Upgrading to a Cable Modem--Part 1 of 5
You can now buy a cable modem off the shelf or off the Web, but should you? Most cable modem services lease the cable modem as part of the monthly service fee. But, here's the catch: Because the monthly service fee includes the cost of the cable modem, you don't get a discount even if you supply your own. Before you buy a cable modem, you should check with the services in your area. You may be wasting your money if you buy your own cable modem.
