|I am not sure if it is a bit of a red herring, but I have been informed that if one is connected to a Huawei FTTC cabinet, then a VDSL router with Broadcom chipset will perform better. Similarly, an ECI cabinet is based on Lantiq so getting a VDSL router using the Lantiq chipset is potentially more stable.
Is there any validity to this? I have identified that my cabinet is Huawei (Broadcom) and 600m away.
Reason for asking is that my Smarthub was very unreliable and the HH5 replacement seems to disconnect at least once a day and usually at inconvenient times - so looking for a good third party solution which will also provide a guest access option on wifi as well.
