said by n2jtx:The article was on Time Warner Cable, not Frontier. Otherwise I agree with you. Frontier is ripping people off. Time Warner's letter is simply that they are starting to charge for leased modems. If you want to buy your own, then there is a list of approved modems to use. This is all dictated in the letter. said by Nightfall:
Buy your own modem. Problem solved.
Read it again:
Frontier Communications recently started charging everyone a $7 "modem support and warranty fee" whether you own your modem or not.
I myself still own my Optimum Online modem. If Optimum suddenly inserts a fee in my bill, they are getting a copy of the receipt for the modem.
