      Looks like a nice piece of kit!

      Presumably it will work on Sky Fibre out of the box?

      From the Billion site -
      The Billion BiPAC 7800DXL delivers a future-proof solution for ADSL2+ connections, superfast FTTC and ultra-speed FTTH (Fibre-To-The-Home) network deployment and services.

      It is also capable of using a 3/4g dongle as a fallback. A very good router if you can afford the 140-200 price tag.

      Do you still need the BT modem for the fibre connection OR is the fibre modem built in?
      It would be excellent if you had an all in one fibre modem/router!
      Or do we have to wait for that one still to be developed?
