Which VDSL modem / router is likely to be supplied

Chatting with my ISP and asked what modem /router they'd likely supply for their 25 / 10 service. Response was that it was Bell's decision, as I presume Bell is the one who handles that side of things (ISP isn't Bell)

Anyway, does anyone know what model / make it is likely to be, and got any links to specs / features, and would it be crippled by Bell, even though it's not direct from bell as such

It's crippled by not just locked down features, but also by speeds in bridge mode if you happen to get 50/10 and want to use your own router...

Thank you
How exactly is it crippled, and can it be uncrippled (if that is such a term!) and if so is there a real advantage in doing so?

I haven't heard anybody "un-crippled" it.

Well I had a few issues... like DMZ or portforwarding seems broken... also bridge mode seems limited to around 35mbps.

... seriously? That's pathetic. Typical Bell bullshit.

And to think, I was ever so excited at the prospect of FTTN.

Well lucky enough, I'm on a 7330 slam... So I got a cheap VDSL2 modem (Huawei HG610) and it works great.

Yeah, 7330s should be going in here this summer. I'll probably do the exact same thing and eat the $5/month or whatever it is just to not have to deal with a piece of shit for a modem.

Anyone know the max performance of the Cellpipe 7130 in bridge mode? Does it matter what DSLAM it is connected to?

It works fine at 25 Mbps on a Stinger but I'm curious as to how well it would support 50 Mbps.

This one? 118 chinese dollar = 20 CAD

Ebay price 61cad is too expensive.

That's a fake HG610, and probably isn't even capable of VDSL2. On the back it says ADSL, no RoHS, CE, and C-UL-US certification either.

A real one looks like this,

How is $61 CAD too expensive? These are VDSL modems, not ADSL2+ that are over a decade old. Compared to $130 for the Sagemcoms, 61 is a steal.
