Not usually, in most cases the ISP will let you choose your own 
equipment.  Sounds like Sky is an exception to the rule.

I know with BT Broadband they say you can use your own router but it's 
unsupported (especially if using something like BT Vision).  I also 
believe that with O2 they let use use any router and again just don't 
support it.
