Hi, I've just joined Call Flow and they are now sending out the Billion 8800NL modem/router. This is not a bad little device, it has a USB port for plugging in an external drive for using as a media server, not used that yet. A single gig-e port and 3 x 100meg ports. No external aerials, the wi-fi coverage is about 10% down on what my Zoom x7n was pushing out. It also has a snr option in the web gui for altering your snr if you are on an ADSL connection.
I asked if I could use another router and they told me no as well.
They advertise an 'Upto' 25meg down and 2 meg up service in my area. I'm getting (according to the router stats page). 21998 down and 1200 up. The attainable rate is showing 43148 down and 5070 up, a pity they are capping the speeds, perhaps they are keeping the speeds low so they can dish out a 'free' upgrade in the future.
This is my speedtest result - http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/3661462222
I've only had the service for a day and a half and have to say the increase from the paltry 1.1 I was getting before is bloomin' fantastic
