Using my own router instead of renting.

I only use ATT for internet. I subscribe to the power service (45mbps). I know they had to run a "2nd pair" to my house and use bonding to get that speed. I also know I could get a router and follow the steps to use the ATT gateway as a bridge, but I was wondering if there is a modem that I can buy that won't comprimse the 45mbps so I can get rid of the ATT router all together?

Is there still no way to own your own router and gateway for fiber service? This is a deal breaker for me.

There are 3rd party resellers of ATT services that allow you to purchase your 'own' modem.  It will be an ATT provided device, but belongs to you - i.e. no lease fee.  From what I understand, you can only get Internet service like this (no phone or TV) but it is cheaper than internet only from ATT.  I own my NVG599, have 18M service, don't pay a lease fee, and it runs me $45/month.

 

Edit: My service is ultimatly provided by ATT.  ATT installed it and maintains it.  My NVG has ATT written all over it, my IP leases are in ATTs pool.
