Hey Guys,




I have a VDSl connection using Fritzbox 7430 and I'm moving to fiber with SIP lines. The question is, could I use the same modem on fiber and is it good on VoIP?


I was told that this modem isn't good on VoIP, should I change it?




Thanks in advance!!

Will work fine on Fibre, but if you're planning one getting something over 100/20 then I'd say you really want something more powerful. The 7430 is only wireless N too, so your wireless devices aren't going to get the best out of your connection. 




If you like the Fritzbox, maybe look at a 7590. Pretty sure that will do gigabit OK, if that's what you're after.

2Degrees suplies a Fritbox 7490 for fibre connections - it apparently does full speed for gigbit connections.  So the new 7590 should be more than fast enough for gigabit fibre, if you can get one.  I have a 7390 which is not fast enough for gigabit, but works fine just doing only the VOIP phones behind my EdgeRouter ERLite.

Thanks for replying,


 The fiber is 100/20 only and we are going to use 2 X Unifi to cover my Wifi area. My SIP lines will going to be connected on a IP PBX 3CX, so I think that could be a goo combination..




Am I right?

I use 2degrees fibre with a FritzBox 7490 and have a bundled telephone line.


I am not aware of your use case but I use a FritzFon cordless DECT as a home phone.


Its integration with the FritzBox make it an easy phone to set up and use. Yes it costs more than a standard DECT phone but the quality and features make it worthwhile.
