FTTN VDSL Modem recommendations?

Post by criten » Sun May 01, 2016 5:35 pm

Hi

FTTN is being rolled out in my area. Just wanted some recommendations for a VDSL2 modem...

Curious about two options:
  • Just a simple modem with wireless 1200AC
  • A modem with 1200AC and VoIP with DECT

Hi Criten,

We can recommend the Netcomm NF8AC which has been certified by NBN however it is not VOIP compatible.

If you would like to purchase the Modem, Kindly get back to us.

Regards
Mandy

I just saw this post, re the NF8AC being NBN acceptable and available through Exetel.

I'm looking at taking up an NBN plan (FTTN) and am only being offered the options of the NW10W / NF10VW at the sign-up page.

If it is available, then why doesn't it get offered as an option? And are there any other compatible dual band wifi modem/routers that Exetel could supply as part of a NBN plan?

Thx PJ
cheers,

PJ & Liz

Hi,

At the moment the Netcomm NF8AC is not available on the order form however if you would like to purchase the Modem, we can arrange it for you.

This is not a VOIP compatible modem.

Other Modems that we could recommend, are the Modems that are available on the order form.

Regards
Mandy

Many thanks Mandy

I presume I'd need to place my NBN order through phone sales rather than online in order to select the NF8AC?
And do you know how much Exetel can supply this for pls?

Cheers
PJ

If you can supply the NF8AC is it also possible to supply the VOIP equivalent modem - NF17ACV?
Unfortunately the modem (NF10WV) you supply on your NBN plans uses old wifi technology not the newer AC protocol.

Hi

Unfortunately, this has not been registered with NBN VDSL as yet, therefore we are unable to offer this at the moment.

Are you referring to the 802.11ac technology?

I have further checked with sales and currently we provide NF10W / NF10WV only, which supports FTTN VDSL product.
