UFB is under construction in my street and should be weeks away from being available to order.  
It would be easier and I'd be happy to stay with my current provider Slingshot, but they are not listed as an RSP in the TRON according to Ultrafast Fibre.

Will i be able to sign up with Slingshot in the coming weeks once its available at my address?  Also would I need the Slingshot $20 router as I have a Linksys WRT1900AC which I'm sure will be better?

We can definitely do an Ultrafast connection once it's available at your address. You can use your current router but in terms of getting support I'd suggest using the NF4V that we supply. Feel free to flick me through a message if you are after more info.

Is the Netcomm NF4V the new standard fibre modem Slingshot provides (replacing the the Broadcom TriplePlay 150), or is it an upgrade option we need to request/pay more for?

Thanks :)
