Hi @nguyenvq,

 

Welcome to TPG Community!

 

We have located the account using your community details. It appears that your address is planned to be serviced with NBN Fibre to the Curb (NBN FTTC).

 

Are you aware what type of NBN service this modem was previously used? If not, please provide us the MAC Address and Serial Number of the modem so we can look into this further.

 

We'd like to check if this modem is configured to work for NBN FTTC service. Thank you.

Hi @nguyenvq,

 

We use TP-Link VR1600v as well for FTTC customers, so yes, that modem should work. That being said, when you upgrade from ADSL to NBN service, you will be provided a free modem for you to use, albeit you have to pay for the $10 shipping fee.

Hi @Riezl 

Thank you for the information and that information is for FTTN and FTTB.
