UK DSL Modem recommendations

Mon Dec 07, 2020 11:05 pm

I'm in the process of putting a spec together for site in the UK that is limited to FTTC/VDSL2 - they have two separate lines.

I've been lucky enough to focus on FTTP/FTTH implementations recently and I wondered whether anyone had any recommendations on VDSL2 modems?

I saw an earlier posts from people mentioning the Planet VC-231 / Vigor 130, but they were a few years ago..

My best recommendation is use Modem/Router of your ISP but on bridge mode. That's all.

Vigor 130 are still good.

Also worth looking at refurb HG612 from ebay, they just work :)

Thanks very much for the recommendation.. Unfortunately they have a heavily locked down unit from the supplier, so that isn't really an option..

That's brilliant, thanks.. I hadn't considered the HG612, but it's a good shout. I've previously unlocked one a few years ago to get stats, maybe that's the best approach..

The Vigor 130 is very good in bridge mode to a Mikrotik router. SNMP on the Vigor 130 also works well.
