I have been with TPG on FTTB for 5 years and the modem I have is HG659.
Recently I noticed that Wi-Fi got constantly slower. Sometimes speedtest showed less than 10Mbps for download or even the speedtest page was not even ready to test (the page did not even show "Go").
Also when I watch YouTube with Apple TV, sometimes it stops and just buffering or the resolution gets lower.
I have checked this community and some could get a new TP link VR1600V (I believe this is the latest modem for FTTB).
Can you organaise a new modem please?
Thank you in advance.
