Re: ISPs renting modems to customers..
@afwriter. I still rent my modem also but plan on buying my own modem. My ROI will breakeven two years. That may seem like a long time but I would be much happier paying less each month to my ISP provider.

Re: ISPs renting modems to customers..
@mhhf1ve, I agree. Renting should be an option but ISPs should encourage customers to purchase their own modems. This would reduce customer service calls, in-person service requests, and overall operation costs.

I like that Amber Infrastructure considers itself to be a socially responsible company, according to the company’s website. They seem to invest in socially beneficial areas, such as sustainable energy (and broadband!).

Re: ISPs renting modems to customers..
I don't see the rental router business going away anytime soon. It's a ni ce profit center for the providers while they can claim that "equipment consumers have picked up on the cheap from a big-box retailer, with little guidance other than price tags -- may well have an expensive, negative effect," on customer service. I've always bought my own and the only downside is the cable customer service and installers will place the blame on your equipment being faulty when things go bad. But, my experience is the equipment is fine, it's the installer who don't know how to hook it up correctly or the cable company has problems on their end they don't want to acknowledge.

Re: ISPs renting modems to customers..
I don't think it would be a bad thing. I'm stuck in a position now where I could switch providers and save a bundle but I have to work in the cost of a new modem which I would have to buy. Then there is the time it would take to set it up if I had already bought one instead of renting it would have made the transition a lot easier.

ISPs renting modems to customers..
It'll be interesting to see when ISPs stop renting modems and wireless routers to customers. It seems like an analogy to the old ways of AT&T renting phones for decades to POTS customers.....

not so sexy white boxes...
Apple is really missing out on the "smart" wireless routers that are coming out to blanket homes with mesh networks and easily managed WiFi networks. Google's WiFi pucks are probably going to sneakily take over the smart home -- and allow Nest products to dominate the smart home market, if Amazon and Apple aren't careful.
