If you were going to whip out your cable and internet bill though, you’d see all sorts of ridiculous fees that tack a ridiculous amount of money onto your already pricey monthly bill.

Just pick up a NETGEAR DOCSIS 3.0 340Mbps Cable Modem, activate it using the instructions in the manual, and return your old modem to your cable internet provider — you’ll start saving up to $120 each year the moment you do.
