Boy Genius Report has discovered an affordable device that will save you up to $120 a year on your cable bills. Find out more from BGR and shop below:

From BGR:
Your cable company has been overcharging you for years for every service it provides. That includes pay TV, home phone service, and of course internet access. Thankfully, there are now other options when it comes to pay TV and home phone — you can always cut the cord and get something like the Ooma Telo for phone service. Sadly, there’s nothing you can do about pricey home internet service. Actually, that’s not entirely true. While there’s no way around the high cost of internet plans, you can save up to $120 a year by purchasing your own cable modem like the TP-Link TC-7610 DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem, which works with every major cable ISP in the country. Buy one, activate it using the instructions in the box, and return your old modem to your cable company so they’ll stop charging you a bogus monthly fee for your modem rental.

Instead of shelling out another $600 over the next five years, get yourself a TP-Link TC-7610 DOCSIS 3.0 (8×4) Cable Modem on Amazon for $43. Follow the instructions to activate it with any ISP, return your old modem to your cable company, and that $8-10 monthly fee will disappear.
