My home network still runs on Wireless G, since Verizon doesn't consider it imperative to give its customers modern routers. I also don't have any devices that are AC compatible and I'm not sure if I have any 5 Ghz WiFi devices either.

If you're not willing to pay for one yourself why should Verizon.

? Verizon provides the in-home router and it must be on the network. I could buy another router with superior wifi but I'd have to set it up as just a WiFi access point. With the prices that I pay Verizon, I'd say that I've already bought several superior routers :(

Verizon just likes to nickle-and-dime us, that's all. They know that they're vastly superior to the Great Evil that is Comcast, their only competition, and they exploit that. I'm hoping that Comcast's "fastest in-home wifi" ad campaign will inspire Verizon to modernize.

If you're on a xDSl line you can set up any router to connect through the wan port with a pppoe all you need to do with your modem is to make a factory reset making the Verizon router nothing other than a glorified modem. Something similar may be done with cable modems I believe but I don't have experience with it as mine is a standalone modem.

Perfect for streaming 1080@60HZ that the new NVIDIA SHIELD will no doubt support!
