Using your own router is a good way to cut internet costs without having to downgrade your internet plan. You can also try negotiating for a lower price with your current provider, or switch to another internet provider to take advantage of introductory pricing and special promotions.

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.
