5. If your router's firmware is version 02.02.00.13 or later, then your router is no longer affected by these vulnerabilities.

These devices are only used by verizon customers, verizon pushed a fix to everybody before the vulnerability was publicly disclosed, and it was only exploitable by users on your LAN anyway.

So not like, a four alarm fire.

No I do, I paid money to not rent one. When I cancel my service I will still have it.

Yeah they will rent you monthly a box or you can buy one, vzn has specific requirements hard core on what you have to have (aka basically you have to buy it from them)

Yes, that’s what I do. No router, just a Gbe plug from the ONT.

You only need their router if you use their cable TV or aren’t technically sophisticated enough to want your own router.
