I currently have Comcast Internet and telephone, and Direct TV for my TV. Because i am not bundled any more I am getting boned on my rates for Phone & Internet. Consequently I am considering switching my phone from Comcast to BasicTalk service. I have no other options for internet, so I will have to stick with Comcast for that.
So my question is... Currently I am paying 7 bucks a month to rent the modem from Comcast. From what I understand if you have phone service through them, then you need a special modem that only Comcast provides. However, if you do you phone service through another provider then you can use any quality modem. So, if I switch my phone service, can I go out and purchase my own modem and tell Comcast to stop billing me the 7 bucks?
Also, can anyone recommend me a good modem for this application?
Thanks for the help!
