I had my installation for FTTC this week and the engineer used a ECI modem that he put on the wall. I asked for a Huawei but he didn't have any in the van. My cabinet is a Huawei 96 - http://imgur.com/6TOHIUC so have ordered a HG612 just in case my line decides to become unstable and to have a spare.
I was using the Openreach modem which connected to my Billion 8800NL but now using just the Billion as a modem and router.
I should receive the HG612 tomorrow and was wondering if there are any advantages/disadvantages for using the Openreach modem and a router or just use the Billion? Is one setup preferable to the other?
And if I wanted to replace the ECI with the Huawei, how do remove it from the wall, does the cover come off?
