You do not have to use the ONT provided by Race though we highly recommend it, especially for our "Gigafy Me" internet package - you want to get what you pay for. Routers that provide a gigabit throughput of speed can be pricey, with prices ranging from $200 all the way up to $1,000 depending on the make and model.

However, you are always welcomed to do your research and purchase your own device. If you need some help or pointers on what to look for, take a look here:

Unfortunately, you cannot purchase a Race ONT directly - you can only lease it. With your monthly rental fee, Race provides 24 hour technical support for the device, something that we cannot offer for other self-purchased devices.
