As far as I'm aware, you still need a Telepermit to connect a modem to the copper network. Imported devices are unlikely to be permitted, and the cost of this will probably outweigh any savings from the import.

Are you wanting a Modem/Router or just a Router

Huawei produces very good products for what you are looking for. They are freely available in NZ and have been tested and approved for NZ. Contact one of their resellers or their Distributor Atlas Gentech

Maybe you should explain first why you think importing from China is a good idea. The only obvious assumption would be price, but that's not one in the real world.

 

You can't legally use any xDSL modem you import because it doesn't have a Telepermit.

 

I don't see any reason why you'd want to import a router for UFB when you can easily buy low cost router here for $40 up.

 

Without knowing exactly what your reasons are and your requirements it's not really possible to offer any advice, but I certainly wouldn't see any Chinese products stacking up quality and price wise.

What on earth do you need that many rubbish routers for?

 

This is the sort of thing you're letting yourself in for: http://blog.ioactive.com/2016/08/multiple-vulnerabilities-in-bhu-wifi.html

ok the exporters who usually send to Australia and Newzealand have the campatibility options that suits NZ requirements.

 

And I would be looking for exporters who have someprior experience sending the modems to NZ and AUS so that they know what they are doing.

 

the prices for an ADSL modem can go as cheap as $10 USD if you get it from them.

 

And that is the reason why I would be getting it from there as if u just want 1 or 2 yes I can buy from here but obviously im am looking for more.

 

and if it works out I will be ordering another bulk so there is ur answer

Are you looking to import and sell these at a huge profit?

 

Or do you really have a project that needs that many ADSL2 routers, but you have no money?

 

If the latter, I'm sure I could scare up 15 unwanted ADSL2 routers from my Facebook friends for $0 each.  You could probably do this too.

 

If the former ...

If its for business purposes, i'm sorry but i have to agree with the rest of this thread.

 

Go to a reputable manufacture, its not like they are sold for a massive profit here, Especially not if you go through a distributor with a bulk order.

 

 

 

Last thing anyone wants is more cheap modems that cant preform more than the up-most basic task.

 

One only needs to look back at the original cheap VDSL modem slingshot were doing to see the utter frustration it was for customers, It's not so much of an issue now although IIRC they did change do a different one of the Energy Import ranges.

Also having local support is helpful, buying a bunch of Chinese "cheap" units would be a pain for support :)

Having experience with router/modem testing in the industry - are you talking about thousands of units?  Because if not then by my reckons the time and money you would spend getting anything you import directly from China up to scratch, and the subsequent security and support risk, will not be worth it vs buying from a local supplier, or just using whatever your chosen network provider gives you.
