Re: VDSL2/ADSL2+ Modem for EVLT-K cards (ALU 7330)

said by simsin0:

so it seems to work well with bell fttn dsl connections?

I might be switching to 50/10

How much does it matter what kind of equipment I am connected to on bells side?

It works with 7330 SLAM, probably wont work with stingers.

Pretty much no way... would need to ask your ISP to see what equipement you're on.

I just picked up a Huawei HG610 (wired) modem/router

Does that thing have screw mount holes? I can't find a pic of the bottom.

Excellent! I think I'll pick one up and hope it works on Telus' network.

I believe Telus uses the SLAMs and line cards, but you might want ask TierX See Profile over in the Telus forum just to make sure.

I'll poke him and see what he says. If that is the case, would that indicate that this modem will likely work, or likely not work?

It would definitely work.

Looks like TierX hasn't been on for nearly 3 months. I pulled the trigger and will report back after I get my hands on it.

I just picked up on this thread. I'm with Teksavvy and am now considering my modem options. I note you have had the Huawei HG610 for a month now and would appreciate an update on how it is working out for you. In particular if there are any problems or reliability issues such as maintaining the connection. Thanks.

It's rock solid. No disconnects, no errors, not one hiccup.

Kovy has the same modem on a 75Mbps profile, so hopefully he can give us an update too.

Thanks, guys. I assume the one and only listing on eBay is the way to go?

Yup.

He also has an all-in-one from ZTE, but I haven't looked into what chipset it has, and it's not like I'd ever get an all-in-one device, but it looks pretty decent.

I would personally never buy any product made by Huawei but everyone has their own ideas.

Pretty slim pickings when it comes to VDSL modems I'm afraid. It'd be quite a feat for Huawei to be worse than most of the options currently available.

It's not the quality of this specific product. It's the company's past practices and ownership/govt ties.

Is that through experience, or is it because you believe the conspiracy theories?

I'm not very familiar with them as a company. But I understand those details affecting our decisions as a consumer. That's a big reason why many of us avoid the incumbants wherever possible.

Competition is good. Hopefully some of the other modem manufacturers will start selling VDSL products.

Update #1: Just set it up and it's working fine on a Telus ADSL2+ line. When I get my speed bump to VDSL I'll confirm that, too.

That's what you get if you have 50/10 and FibeTV.

so they give a higher profile which you can use for internet traffic if you aren't currently receiving some TV channels? now i'm interested in getting the cheapest possible FibeTV package

They rate limit the Internet side to 50Mbit/s, or at least they're supposed to.

does the rate limiting happen on the modem or at the remote? it seems like the modem would handle it and maybe thats why they're forcing certain modems.

i'm guessing you're also stuck with the official Bell modems if you want Fibe TV? looking at the pricing i'm actually not interested at all in paying for another installation and a 2 year commit.

It's force on the user name.

that seems weird. doesn't the fibeTV data go through the modem to or does it throttle certain types of protocol (QoS)? also is it possible to get fibeTV if you have VDSL2 from another company?
