It’s been a while since we’ve heard the name cable router.
That may change this weekend when Comcast and Charter announced that they’re launching an online portal to get customers up and running with their new devices.
The website, called the Cable Router Upgrade, will allow customers to buy a new cable box and start up their new router.
You’ll need to be a Comcast or Charter customer to access the service.
The service will cost $30 per month.
Comcast said it will sell “the most affordable” cable router options to customers, but you can find all of the options at the Comcast website.
Cable boxes are available in the U.S. for $300 to $500.
Charter said it plans to sell about 600,000 boxes by the end of the year.
The upgrade service will launch on May 25 and will be available in select areas of the country, including Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Comcast says the upgrade will work with the company’s existing customers.
Charter will sell the same cable router in select markets as well, including San Diego, Portland, Oregon and Houston.
What are the pros and cons of cable router upgrades?
Comcast’s plan is similar to the ones that Charter and others have offered for years, but it’s also more affordable.
The Cable Router upgrade will come with a 30-day trial period, but Comcast will sell you the product for $30.
Comcast is also offering a $50 gift card to customers that sign up.
That gives Comcast customers access to its free TV streaming service for up to three months.
Charter is also promising a $150 gift card that includes a cable box, Internet access, and an upgrade kit for its customers.
Cable router upgrades cost $80 per month, but some customers have said they’re willing to pay more if it means they can get more channels on their home network.
Can I upgrade my cable router?
Yes, Comcast said, but there’s a catch.
If you don’t already have a cable router, you’ll need one that’s compatible with the new cable technology.
Comcast has offered free upgrades for customers who buy a standard cable box for less than $300.
It’s unclear if the new upgrade will include a new router or if it will still include the old box.
Why does Comcast need to upgrade its cable boxes?
Comcast isn’t going to make a big dent in the company when it comes to paying its cable subscribers.
The cable company’s current cable business is mostly based in the West, but its new cable service in the Midwest and other parts of the world will be able to deliver more channels to its subscribers, too.
Cable companies have a business model, and they’re not going to go away, said Roger Siegel, an analyst at the research firm MoffettNathanson.
The cable company has also faced criticism for paying its own workers more than the minimum wage.
Comcast’s CEO Brian Roberts said last month that the company was considering cutting workers’ benefits in order to reduce costs.
It is also looking to add new services like virtual reality headsets and wireless hotspots to the mix.
