From what I can gather:
- 2D Broadband provides FritzBox routers to new signups on 12 month contracts (https://en.avm.de/products/comparing-avm-products/fritzbox/vdsladsl/)
- As of a couple years ago, they provided one of the lower tier models for entry level fibre (100mbit), i.e. the Fritzbox 7430 or 7460, but provided a higher tier model for customers signing onto gigabit fibre - the Fritzbox 7490
I've just signed onto 2D 900/400 fibre and been provided a newer generation Fritzbox 7530, though as the lower tier of the new generation this router has wifi which even at it's theoretical maximum cannot keep up with the underlying fibre (I understand real world will always be much less than theoretical max). The wifi on the older 7490 was better.
Customer service has assured me that this is the correct router for the plan.
I'm wondering if anyone else has been given a better router such as the Fritzbox 7590 (with double the theoretical wifi throughput), or whether I should just suck it up and buy my own router.
