I am wondering, why would someone purchase this?

I thought you could only use cable modems that are supplied by the provider?

Depends on the provider. In the US its more common people buy their own modems, in Canada its more common that people rent them. Also this is done to make sure things are compatible.

If you go to the Wal-Mart in Soo Michigan they have those same cable modems on the shelf for sale....

Yes, but don't waste your money, Shaw won't provision them.

I got a question: I have a Shaw cable modem one of the newer motorola modems (SB101?). Could I sell that on Ebay and someone could use it on another cable ISP? Could another Shaw customer use that modem?

Another shaw customer could only use it if the previous customer paid the bill in full.

The one I got is bought and paid for and won't be using it in the new year as I will be moving to a place that doesn't have shaw service just DSL...so that is why I was wondering if I could sell it...

I think if you sell them, shaw contacts the original owner to make sure it is o.k. (and wasnt stolen)...we gave one to my son and Shaw called us to confirm that it was o.k. that he used it, they do not care if it is sold/given away or what ever.
