Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

The Comcast representative wanted me to have their tech come out to install my modem for $50.00. Since installation was putting a splitter on the cable and sending one cable to the TV and the other to my laptop, I felt I could handle it and I saved the $50.00 installation fee. Once the modem is attached, you call Comcast and provide them with the mac# that is on the modem and you are in business.
For $25.00 a month I get a slow but reliable connection to the Internet. Slow as compared to what I have at home but lightning fast compared to the 56k modem I once used. (For you youngsters, connection use to be over phone lines using telephone modems.) So instead of spending $4-$8/day on crapachinos at the local Starbucks just so I could get connected, I am spending less than a dollar a day to keep the dreaded, cold turkey effects of Internet withdrawal. Check where you vacation, they too, may have seasonal Internet.
