Just been upgraded to Gigantic Fibre, should I be chasing Orcon up for the Fritzbox or should my NF4V be sufficient? First lot of speed tests have peaked at 200/200, I notice the upload starts off at 1000+ but then throttles down to 150 - 200 mbit.

When I upgraded they sent me out a FritzBox. I don't think the NF4V is capable of delivering consistent Gigabit speeds. Definitely get the upgrade, you are paying for it.


FritzBox is a far superior modem and allows remote monitoring via phone app and 5Ghz wifi. You will have to send back your NF4V.


You are going to love the download speeds!!!
