AT&T Airties 4971 wifi extender purchase options

I currently own (as in bought outright from AT&T) a single model 4921 extender. I understand that model is no longer being supported, and have been told that my only option now is to pay $10 a month for eternity for something that I previously bought for a fixed cost. This seems ridiculous to me. Is that truly my only option?

The other option is purchase a third-party Wi-Fi system and use it with, or in place of, the Wi-Fi features of the AT&T Gateway.  This third-party system could be a simple Wireless Router or Access Point that just functions better than the AT&T one, or it could a mesh system of a router/access point and extenders.
