Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 Apple HomeKit Router Support

Answered

 

 Hi, 

 

    Will the Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 have a firmware upgrade to support Apple's new "Homekit-enabled Router" standard? 

 

 Also is there any news on release timeline of Smart Modem Gen 3? Will it support Wifi 6 and 5G mobile backup? 

 

 Cheers, 

 

 Chris.

  1. There's no public information on Apple's new "Homekit-enabled Router" standard being added to the modems firm
  2. There's no public information on the next modem being released or its capabilities 
  3. Unlikely in my opinion to have a 5G backup built in due to significantly more 4G coverage and that backup speed is limited at this stage to 6/1
