Vodafone have a new modem/wireless router for ADSL VDSL cable and fibre, the Vodafone Ultra Home Hub.


https://www.vodafone.co.nz/broadband/ultrahub-modem/ 


From the label on the bottom of the modem in a Vodafone help video looks like it's made by Technicolor, but otherwise don't know anything about it. Any thoughts?

model number? and/or specsheet? Interested in specs...

 

 

 

4x4 AC sounds decent for wifi, I do like the single RGW approach when the RGW is a solid product (eg what the HG659b's are with a nice firmware)

I love the fact it's so smart you can plug your Snom IP phone into the ATA port. I wonder how that's supposed to work?

Will people who already have the old HomeHub modems from a FibreX install less than two months ago get the new vodafone modem?

 

 

Why?

What is the DSL chipset in this modem?

 

 

 

What is the clockrate of that dualcore cpu?

 

Has there been any tests on routing performance?

 

 

 

How locked down is the device for a IT person to tweak?

 

 

 

Is bridging supported out of the box?

 

Oh Oh, and bonus question - why the choice to move back to Technicolor?
