If the user does not subscribe to cable TV then they are paying an extra 
$10.00 per month for Internet. The modem rental for me is only $3.00 per 
month I believe. I don't know the cost to buy one.

Now, I'm neither seller, rep nor user, but Clear can provide respectable 
broadband for less than half what Comcast charges. I don't use it 
because I am out in rural WashCo, too far away from their towers.
