Should I use my own router?
There are benefits to using your own router vs. buying or renting one from your internet provider, such as lower monthly costs and more product options.

Select providers may not give you the option to use your own router.
How can I lower my cable bill?
Downgrading services or cutting extras, such as Wi-Fi extenders or premium tech support, can lower your monthly internet bill. You can also try to negotiate with your internet provider for a lower rate. Switching internet providers and bundling internet with other services is another common way to lower internet costs.
