Re: Modem

The TG799 is not the latest version. There have been 5 upgraded models since the TG799 was first released. The latest modem the Telstra Gen 2 Smart modem (DJA0231 and LH1000) has faster WiFi and faster LAN ports. It also comes with 4G backup. It cost $216 but Telstra has been offering it free to some customers. You could try contacting support and requesting a free upgrade. Another alternative is to buy one second hand. I have seen them secondhand for as low as $20. If you have a choice get the Technicolor version (DJA0231) in my opinion it better than the Arcadian version and has a similar GUI it the TG799.

Set it & forget it

With direct debit there’s no need to give paying your bill another thought.
