I'm moving to BigPipe next month. 
I already got a RT-AC87U router, what i need is just a cheap VDSL modem to connect to the router.
Any recommendation?

We recommend PB Tech for the cheapest deals around. In particular the Netcomm NF4V, it's VDSL compatible but also future proof as it's UFB ready!

Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

if you just want the modem for cheap, try trademe and grab a second hand telecom/spark one and use it in bridge mode

I've got a box of VDSL routers - not kidding. Ex Spark ones.

Flick me a DM and pay shipping and a donation if you want one.
