We recommend using the Vodafone Wi-Fi Hub™ 2.0 with our Vodafone nbn™ Plans as it gives you access to Vodafone 4G Back-up. We can also remotely connect to the Vodafone Wi-Fi Hub™, which is useful if we need to troubleshoot your nbn™ service. We’re unable to do this if you use your own modem or Compatible Modem.
If your modem or Compatible Modem interferes with the nbn™ service or network, we may have to suspend or disconnect your Vodafone nbn™ service.
