Can I avoid paying rent for my AT&T U-Verse modem?

Episode 882

Susie from Ashville, NC

Yes. She is renting her router from them. She'll need two things to use her U-Verse connection. One of those things is the modem which takes the U-Verse that's coming in demodulates it into internet access. Then she needs a router which takes that internet access and allows a number of devices to use it. The unit she's renting is probably one box. Sometimes, it's possible to buy that box and eliminate the rental, but it's not possible with U-Verse.
