Hello,



I need buy a modem for VDSL Turbo Bigpip plan.

I asked some options for support but that not was to much clean for me.

I just need a modem, because I have a really good router, so I don't want spend to much money.

Between the options bellow, which work in VDSL Turbo?



1)Micronet SP3501BS, VDSL2 CPE Modem/Route



2)TP-Link TD-W8960N 300M



3)Huawei HG659b



4)Huawei HG630B



5) D-Link VDSL2 - DSL-6740B/SP



Some different suggestions?



Thanks so much (Sorry for my terrible English)

None of the above.

If you are looking for a modem, you'll want the Draytek Vigor 130.

do you just need something to do the VDSL side of things, and you already have your own wireless router? or do you need an all in one device that does the VDSL and wireless?

if its the Latter then the NF8AC is a good cheapish choice and will do UFB when it come a round

Thanks for the responses, I don't need the router, just the modem.

This options are more expensive than NZ$ 150,00. Any option cheaper?

Cheers

If you JUST need the modem,  then go for the Draytek 130

http://pricespy.co.nz/product.php?p=2171714

It's about $140


alternatively,  you can buy a 2nd hand VDSL Spark modem from trademe for about $80-100, and run it in bridge mode.  That should be fine.

yep,  both will work.  But, if it comes down to the same price,  then go for the 659b as it has Gb Ethernet ports and a/c wifi whereas the 630b only has 100Mb ethernet ports. (not that you'll need the a/c using it solely as a modem, but good to know it's there in case)

You said you just need a modem as you have a router. The HG659b and HG630b are modem/router all in one units.

Thanks Ixsw,

My question is if it works fine and have a cheaper price, I just thought the modems without router could be cheaper.

Anyway, thanks

sorry to hear that.  Can you PM me your email address please and I will take a look at what's happened.

Normally we get the confirmed date back from Chorus pretty quickly, so it's pretty unusual to not have a date by now. (check your spam folder too, in case our replies have gone in there)

the auction says it works with VDSL,  but I have no knowledge of that modem, so cannot say for sure.  the auction doesn't even state a model number to lookup online.


Honestly, I would steer clear of it.  Even if it does work, at $40 it is probably a complete piece of junk.

Thanks Everyone,

After some research and Bigpip Support feedbacks, I bought a Huawei HG630B, just for modem.

This week i post a feedback about speed.
