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.

Fiber and cable internet are similar internet service types, but fiber offers a few advantages over cable.

According to the FCC, 93% of households have access to three or more providers. In many areas, a cable, DSL, satellite and possibly fiber-optic provider may be available. You are unlikely, however, to find multiple providers of the same internet type, such as two cable providers, in the same location because operating expenses in an area already served by another provider can be too high to be profitable.
