TP-Link C2  or NF4V

 

 

 

Or are they both the same. 

 

Fibre Unlimited

 

 

 

[Mod Edit |Stu| Title changed from "Which modem to buy?" to "Which Router to buy?" as we've discovered the OP is on Fibre]

C2 is not a modem, it's a router.

 

What ISP and what service are you signing up for, and what are your requirements?

Then you don't need a modem, you only need a router. 

 

Will change the thread title to reflect this.

Really depends what your requirements are. Asking "which router to buy" is a bit like asking which car to buy.

 

Without knowing your requirements it's not possible to recommend anything, however with people relying more and more on wireless these days my recommendation is neither because neither support 5GHz and without knowing is wireless performance is a criteria it's really not possible to add anything further.

I'm a little confused.

 

Your heading is asking which router to buy,  but you're actually comparing the offers from 2 different ISPs.

 

 

 

So really aren't you asking "which ISP should I go with"  rather than asking which router?

 

 

 

Also, don't you already have a router from having UFB with spark?  

 

If you have the HG630b then what you have is actually a decent router.  You could keep that and go for an ISP that doesn't force a router purchase on you and probably get better pricing.
