    Default Recommended DSL modem

    Getting a 2nd ISP connection, and looking for recommendations on good DSL modems to use. Or if need be, ones I should definitely avoid. This connection will be used with UT as a fall-back connection, and possibly for VoIP traffic.

    Any input is appreciated.

    Doesn't the telco typically supply the DSL modem (including the DSL filter/splitter)?

    I notice the company is out of the UK. Are these modems compatible with North American DSL ISPs?

    Normally yes. There is a great ISP here that fully supports BYOD.

    BYOD is great for a lot of things but in this case, you may just want to consider using the telco-provided modem. It doesn't need to be state-of-the-art as you're likely going to set it up as a bridge anyway (configure once and forget). This will also solve your concern with device compatibility and whatnot.

    All valid points. This ISP only offers, buy, rent-to-own, and BYOD. Their modem options are fine, but I'm not a huge fan so looking to source something else.
