Upgrade your cable modem with Motorola's MB7621 on sale for $68

The Motorola MB7621 DOCSIS 3.0 24x8 cable modem (opens in new tab) is down to $67.99 on Amazon. That's the lowest price we've ever seen on this cable modem, which hasn't dropped below $80 since last year.

If you use cable internet, you might be renting a cable modem from your ISP, adding another $10 a month or more to your bill without even realizing it. And even if you use your own, you might want to upgrade if you've had it for a while. Either way, the MB7621 can handle internet service speeds up to 650 Mbps. It has a full-band capture digital tuner for fast and reliable internet. The one Gigabit Ethernet port connects to your Wi-Fi router (opens in new tab), computer, game console, or other device. You can use it with home mesh networking kits like Eero (opens in new tab) or Orbi (opens in new tab).

It is compatible with plenty of cable modem internet service providers like Comcast, Cox, Charter Spectrum, Time Warner Cable, and more. Contact your provider to double check if you aren't sure. It comes with a two-year warranty.
