Re: Can I keep using my own modem and router. (SB6141)
No, the surfboard uses the wrong technology. And AT&T will provide the modem/gateway (for a monthly fee), and there's no way to avoid that.
AT&T uses pure fiber optics in only some deployements. Most customers have FTTN, or Fiber to the Node. Fiber is used to a cabinet (known as a VRAD) in your neighborhood, and then the pre-existing copper pairs are used from there to the home.
