It's a Gigabit modem, but it also says it's ADSL+2, so I not completely convinced that it will work.

If it's not going to work, are there any other recommendations for UFB?

Cheers

The TP-Link Archer C2 is pretty good. Handles 200/200Mbps easily. Not too pricey either.

Anything with an Ethernet WAN port which supports PPPoE should work on new Bigpipe UFB connections. Not all devices which will be able to connect will necessarily be able to handle the full speed though.

If you're after something cheap, I'm still trying to offload my N56U since it's just sitting there doing nothing in the packaging still. It'll do for a wired bigpipe connection, the wifi won't do full speed on a 200/20 or 200/200 plan, but Wireless N can just do the 100/100 plans IIRC.
