I'm thinking about upgrading my FiOS Internet service while discontinuing the TV service, given our family's lack of TV watching through the set-top box (made even worse when our local CBS station was cut by Frontier in a carrier dispute, and hasn't been resolved since, and my mom tends to watch CBS to watch 'The Bold and the Beautiful', either through antenna because showbox.bio/ of it, or through the CBS app). tutuapp.uno/ However, I'm considering about using another router rather than Frontier's own, given the $10/month fee just to rent one. (I already read articles/posts on how to switch from a Frontier/Verizon-provided FiOS router to a router of our choice, as long as the ONT is switched properly from coax to ethernet output, vidmate.vet/ which would be recommended if TV service isn't used.)
And it leads me to this point: Assuming I want to ditch the FiOS router completely, and aside from the Ubiquiti solutions (UniFi Security Gateway + UniFi Switch + UniFi AP, for example) that we redditors here quote about, what are the best wireless routers out there at different price points? I'd like to get various inputs from both a value-oriented perspective ($100-$150) and a high-end perspective (e.g. ASUS ROG Rapture, Netgear Nighthawk, etc). I currently place my router in a hallway upstairs close to my room.
