The modem will interface with a desktop PC for ultra-fast wired DSL Internet access, or can be used as a WiFi router to support multiple devices on your network.

The device provides support for all major providers like AT&T, CenturyLink, Verizon, Frontier, Telstra (excluding AT&T U-verse, Verizon Fios, CenturyLink Fiber and Prism) and sports auto detection for universal DSL support.

The setup and installation has also been simplified, states the company.
