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.

There are many factors that can influence internet speed. In many cases, restarting your router will resolve speed and connectivity issues. Other factors, such as peak usage times and speed throttling can also cause temporary speed issues.
