From BGR:
It’s hard to believe that giant telecommunications company might be scared of a tiny little $40 box on Amazon, but believe us when we tell you that they’re scared to death. Why? Because there’s nothing these big cable companies love more than free money, and you hand over between $8 and $10 of free money each and every time you pay your internet bill. That’s because you’re using their modem, and they charge you a bogus monthly rental fee. Yup, you have to pay $8-10 a month just to have the ability to pay $40-$100 a month for home internet service.
