Cant find anything on the SS website, it shows a 12 month term if I get their free router, but no mention of if I dont get it.

Thinking of gettign a second connection to help out complete all these torrents before september, so if its only a month by month like orcon are then it would work out well.

When I signed up ~15 months ago they were stubbornly insistent on signing me up for a 12 month term. I was willing to pay the standard $99 broadband setup fee but they insisted on me not paying a setup fee but being contracted in. At the time I wasnt offered nor wanted a free modem.

Assuming nothings changed, you will be getting a free modem (and a 12mo term to go with it)

minimum contract term is 12 months regardless, so you may as well take the modem.

Is there any difference in the buyout amount if I do or donot take the modem?

Are you talking about the ETF? If so then no. The ETF covers your connection cost if you were to leave before your contract expires, the modem is really a bonus.

When I joined i thought there was no contract without the free modem. It was a long time ago tho so may have changed the policy by now. Havent used the free modem yet, should have paid for the wifi one!
