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.

Speeds of 10 Mbps and higher are good for gaming, but what you really want to consider when choosing an internet service for gaming is latency, or ping.
