Your router is everything, and a cheap router isn't going to cut it nowadays with UFB, so good to see they are still firm about it.
It also keeps their support simpler too.
vexxxboy:Shock:ioquatix: It looks like to use the new plans you HAVE to buy a new modem even if you have an existing one. I got told this was because of support reasons, but this has never been a problem in the past and my existing modem negotiates a faster connection speed than anything else I've tried. They told me I just need to keep the modem on site for diagnostics!?
Digging the new prices but saving $5 a month only to pay ~$160 for a modem is pretty annoying.
I really really hope that is not true.
From the FAQ in the email from them.
Q: Do I need a new 2degrees Modem if I change to a new 2degrees Broadband Plan?
A: If you have a Snap supplied modem that is less than 4 years old, there is no need for a new modem. If you use a modem that wasn’t supplied by Snap or is dated, then you’ll need to purchase a new 2degrees Modem for $149 on a no term contract, or one will be included on a new 12 month contract.
