I feel like Verizon is taking more of my control of my device away. Why do I need to access my device via their web portal. I feel like they are doing this to control accessing, speeds, config, vpn related usage etc. More of monitoring the users.


How do I get around this. Am I able to go from the ONT cat6 port into a 3rd party wireless router that limits verizon's intrustion and say over my local device?

BTW, the URL is really just a shortcut to that IP.
