Hey there!

 

Just looking for some advice.

 

I currently have Fibre installed in my apartment with a crappy ISP supplied NETCOMM NF4V Modem/Router combo which just isn't doing the job, when somebody is watching a video it slows everyone down to a crawl.

 

I have the opportunity to purchase a fairly cheap Netgear R7000 Router. I'm just curious as to wether or not I will be needing a modem to go along with this router? I've read other posts that imply with Fibre I won't be needing a seperate modem.

 

Heres a link to the router: https://www.netgear.com/home/products/networking/wifi-routers/R7000.aspx

 

I'm based in central Wellington if thats of any importance. 

 

Cheers in advance.

There is no such thing as a modem in fibre world, the R7000 router is all you need.

The installed Chorus ONT is technically your modem.
