Equipment fee

I just ordered internet 1000 and I noticed there would be an equipment fee of $10/month. Could this fee be avoided if i purchased my own router?

only the supplied modem can be used, even if you found one online you would still be charged the equipment fee as the modems are leased and it would technically be a stolen non returned modem
