  • Future proof in terms of upgrading; you don’t have to buy a new modem in the future.
  • You don’t need any fancy equipment to use it; you just need a router.
  • Proactive monitoring means faster repair times.

Cons

  • Availability is more limited.
  • Engineering analysis needed to determine cost.
  • Setup cost can be more expensive.
  • Monthly cost higher and somewhat variable due to distance.
