Default Teksavvy Compatible Cable Modem

Hey guys. So, Teksavvy just started recently offering cable internet services in Toronto and I'm interested in signing up but, I'll need a cable modem first. I'm not really looking to spend too much so I'm hoping that maybe someone has a spare modem available that I could use. I'd prefer one of the Motorola Surfboard models (SB5100, 5101, 5101N, 5120) but I'd consider other models if the price is right.

The list of compatible modems can be found here:
TekSavvy

PM me if you have something! Thanks!

And not stolen, be it literal, or from a rented modem that was never returned. Otherwise I think you'll have some loops to jump through to get it activated.

Do note that buying the modem from TSI, saves you $20 on the the activation charge. So compartively speaking, it'll be $75+10-20 = $65 + HST. So don't spend more than that on a used one.
