Re: Routers

I think it is bundled with the cost of internet service. It is one of those Internet modem and router combos.

Re: Routers

that's just a way to get you stuck paying rental fees, if you buy your own equipment then you end up saving a ton.

Re: Routers

I'm not sure if it is possible to buy my own modem because the modem is made by a less popular brand, and the ISP does not seem to sell modems to users.

I doubt they require a certain brand so long as it meets the spec requirements. like a DOCSIS 3.0

Re: Routers

plus I find that you can have better security on your own than a rented device.

Re: Routers

I feel some ISP provided modems and routers are outdated and slow as well. Plus, the yearly rental fee are enough to buy a better modem and router.
