Wi-Fi connects your device to a router, but that router needs to be connected to the internet for your device to also be connected to the internet. You need an internet service provider to get Wi-Fi.

Yes. Fiber-optic internet is a completely different technology than DSL or cable internet, and therefore requires a different type of modem. In many cases, you can get the required modem from your internet provider at no extra cost.

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.
