The MI424WR Rev I is free if you have a 75/25 or greater plan.  (Or used to be.)  It is also popular and sometimes they are out of it and must give new customers a lower Rev model. 

 

Call customer service and ask them to send you the Rev I.   If they are available you should be able to get one at no cost.   Don't bother with going to a Verizon store.  They can swap equipment, but they will not give you a model upgrade.

You didn't indicate which hardware revision of the MI424-WR you have.

The rev. I (red band) is the latest model and is exactly the same as the "GigE Wireless N Router".

So if you already have the rev. I, there is no point "upgrading".

 

If the router you were given was NOT the rev. I, you should be able to persuade VZ to upgrade your router as the older revisions won't achieve 75/35 wirlessly.  If you can't persuade VZ to give you a rev. I, a new rev. I will cost $79.
