Depends on the equipment that they provide. With TV service or without? If it is with TV service, then the equipment is easy to configure. I run my own firewall and just have all traffic going to my firewall. I even have a /28 block of addresses as well.

I don’t know yet what service. Currently have Charter tv and inet. And an old att landline for alarm system and Vonage for day to day telephone.
So I want to
First put my toe in. Use inet only with my UnIFi setup (router switches ap etc)
Then if it works switch to att digital phone and may be tv. And use a slow speed Charter as backup.
Ps I have 80+ ip numbers internally.

Re: .. hate charter/spectrum ..

With Internet only, some of the equipment you can't put into a DMZ mode to pass all traffic to the device you want. In my case that is my firewall. I have this same setup at two other sites. The fourth site that doesn't have a DMZ mode has to use NAT to site-to-site tunnels and provided equipment has issues at times and needs to be reset.
