Correct, Telecom is in the process of switching modem suppliers to Thomson. Apparently, the Thomson modems offer better performance to users who are 4km+ away from the exchange and do not need to be rebooted if DSL sync is lost. Telecom Broadband Help Desk tech’s can log into these modems directly and help troubleshoot, without requiring the less technically minded customers out there, to get their hands dirty, so to speak.
Single PC Modem: Thomson ST536 Wireless Router: Thomson TG585 Customers may however still receive a Dlink modem / router if they signup to Telecom Broadband, or if the Telecom Broadband Help Desk arrange for your modem to be exchanged. nzbnw
