So I've been with Charter a while now and been paying $5 p/m for "rental" of their cable modem. It's a Motorola Surfboard and so far I've wasted 3 years: 12 x 3 = 36 months, 36 months: 5 x 36 = $180.
Yes I've left it 'that' long to get a replacement cable modem. Any replacement suggestions?
I know some cable modems aren't compatible with particular ISPs so help from other Charter members are most welcome but feel free to offer advice if you have any regardless.
EDIT: After 6 months of use... there's absolutely no difference what so ever using the DOCSIS 3.0 cable modem over the standard DOCSIS 2.0 on the Charter internet service. IF anything, it's not a solid speed all of the time like DOCSIS 2.0
