However, when you make this change, it is considered a modem replacement and you will receive a new modem. You'll complete the steps to set up your new modem and return the old one to us. 

WiFi Seguro is included on certain leased modem models, including C1100s, C3000s, and C4000s. If you purchase one of these modems, Secure WiFi will no longer be available.

If you're currently leasing a modem, you get ongoing technical support instead of a warranty. When you purchase a modem, you will switch to a 12-month repair warranty. This will cover needed repair or replacement in the case of a faulty modem for one full calendar year from the date of purchase.

With a leased modem, repair or replacement is included in the cost of the lease. This coverage provides peace of mind for as long as you keep and use the modem. If your equipment malfunctions or becomes outdated, you'll get a new one without paying extra. You also get features that are only included with newer leased modems, such as WiFi Seguro.

With a purchased modem, you get a 12-month warranty. Esta cubrirá las reparaciones o sustitución necesarias en caso de un módem defectuoso durante un año calendario completo a partir de la fecha de compra. After the warranty expires, you'll be responsible for repair costs or upgrades going forward. A new modem costs anywhere from $150 up to $200, depending on the model.

¿La conclusión? Un módem arrendado cuesta más a largo plazo, al menos en apariencia. However, many customers find it's worth that monthly cost to ensure they never have to pay out-of-pocket for a replacement or unexpected repair of their modem. If you purchase a modem, plan on replacing it every 4 to 5 years to ensure you get the best performance from your internet connection as technology evolves over time.

Chat con servicio al cliente para comenzar el proceso. Un representante te ayudará a seleccionar y solicitar el módem correcto para tu servicio. Una vez que llegue el módem nuevo y lo configures, deberás devolver el módem arrendado a CenturyLink.
