Best VDSL Modem

Hi,

Looking for a good VDSL Modem for the top fibre package (80/20)

My options seem as follows:
1) Openreach Modem (Huawei or ECI depending on my line - not sure what cabinet it is yet)
2) Draytek Vigor 130
3) Netgear DM200-100EUS

The Vigor seems a bit expensive compared to the others. Although, everybody seems to be amazed by this device? How does it compare to the Openreach?

The Netgear seems OK from reviews but not great, can anyone confirm the experience?

They need to run as a Bridge I think, and I will be connecting them to an Edgerouter-X on (most likely) a Plusnet service.

Thanks,
Albert

This guide may help you, although it's focused upon all-in-one broadband routers with an integrated VDSL modem (the best approach).

Unfortunately, I am unable to use a combo-unit style device and have to find a suitable modem. But thank you for sharing.

How come? Is the ISP preventing your from knowing the DSL password?

Sorry, I think I may have said the wrong thing.

I am using a Ubiquiti ER-X as my router, which does not have a VDSL Modem in it. This is the router I would like to use, so I need to find a modem to connect to my Fibre PPPoE service.

Thanks
