WHY Can't we purchase a set box (INSTEAD of that offensive RENTAL that COX keeps charging month by month -- and now once again RAISING the prices on) that combines both the Tuner and DVD Recording functions that will work with cox instead? I'd rather pay up front one time charge .. instead of WASTING my hard-earned income on RENTING This absolutely DUMB BOX That does NOTHING at all. THIS is especially frustrating with other providers not requiring this kind of 1960s money-grabbing low tech and charging us forever for out of date units. (And yes, it offends me that this was added when just running the cable itself into our smart TVs was sufficient). I am SICK And TIRED of COX overcharges (and yes, I NOTICED Another massive increase in the current bill .. THAT is offensive too given how bad the customer service and service is ..)
You'd rather purchase an eMTA as opposed to a freely-loaned one? I haven't researched telephone modems, but is there more functionality or superiority between telephone modems? I suppose if one offers a great call-blocking feature, I'd concur but...like I wrote...I haven't reviewed/compared them.
I am NOT interested in RENTING anything from cox (including the cards .. it's the same MA Bell approach as those dumb boxes). .. that's what I WANT To avoid here! I am sick and tired of your fees increasing at a rate that is 5-6-more times the CPI .. and that is annually ...
no I don't even have cox phone. I meant cox rents/loans the emta free as long as you have cox phone. Cox doses not allow customer owned emta/phone modems
