Just ordered and super excited to switch from Comcast to Sonic. The only thing I really really dislike are the two mandatory rentals for the ONT and the router. The equipment FAQ says ...
Can I use my own equipment? - You can opt out of the RG rental and utilize your own RG solution. However, Sonic does not provide Support for the configuration / set-up of third party devices.
Customers who wish to use their own equipment may do so. Customers will be subject to a shipping fee. Under some circumstances, Sonic Support may require that the provided equipment is installed in order to perform complete diagnostics.
I was told that for the ONT it doesn't work for me since in my street, Sonic doesn't use their own infrastructure but AT&Ts and the ONT authorizes against AT&T. Just trying to understand if that's true.Because if not I'd get my own Adtran 411 and after 20 month that invest would amortize.
Same thing for the residential gateway/router, I don't need that thing, I want to use my own mesh and that's it. So once everything is setup, can I just plug my own router int the ONT verify everything works and ship back the RG I got from Sonic as they stated above?
Thanks for your help.
