Thanks. Now can you tell me where I can buy one? Damn, at that price I'd take two grin.

I've queried Openreach to see if we are able to purchase some of these as both spare/test modems for our customers etc.

They occasionally crop up on ebay although exactly where from is a puzzle, especially when badged "new & unopened".

Openreach have stated they will and do not supply the VDSL2 modem to CP's / ISP's and thus we cannot purchase any from them frown

They of course want us to send SFI engineers with a risk of them charging a crazy amount instead of allowing us to pre-empt if the modem may be faulty by sending a test one out to a customer - like, proper ISP support should be like!

Oh well...

Does anyone know whether it is possible to buy the original Huawei product anywhere? (obviously without the BT specific firmware)?

During my install (4 circuits) I mentioned the overheating problem and asked for a spare, the engineer said he had just been to the stores and had a van full and handed me a spare so it's worth asking.

All mine seem to be the new version ones - http://stuff.futile.net/fttc/modem.jpg
