The broadband market is changing with customers moving from ADSL and FTTC services, to newer superfast and ultrafast full fibre FTTP (Fibre to the Premises) based services.

With this change brings in some cases where new hardware maybe a requirement, as older routers may not work directly with the next generation of broadband services. However, in some cases they can be made to work, with varying degrees of success, therefore we have created this document, where we have listed hardware into 3 groups of compatibility from customer feedback and directly using the hardware ourselves.

Advisory Notice
Aquiss does not endorse or provide direct support for any router listed below, though in some cases, with more popular routers, we have created Router Setup Guides to get customers online.
