Lorenceo: The device terminating your connection will likely end up being the main bottleneck for speeds. Going for the cheapest device that'll work is IMO a bit short sighted, but each to their own.
The C9, NF8AC and C2 will all work on BP UFB. The C9 is the most capable of them all.

 

Fair point, and I totally agree. On the other hand, buying a Ferrari when I just want to pop down to the shops seems like overkill. I was just trying to get a feel for their capabilities. It's a shame the C9 is not wall-mountable. :(

250 isn't too bad for a very decently capable device IMO.
You could spend a lot more on a router if you really wanted to, but you'd be quickly running into diminishing returns.

As for wall mounting, it's a plastic case. Nothing a drill won't fix. :P

I bought a C2 which isn't wall mountable but plan to mount it with velcro dots

Just put the money into a Mikrotik that can tag the WAN port if wanted, can port forward and do so much stuff you head will spin, and purchase some decent WiFi APs to do that bit. Unifi APs are good for domestic and even SME applications, Ruckus standalone mode if you want better

 

my 2c, take it or leave it
