Is Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 compatible with FTTC?

Answered

Months ago, Telstra sent me a Smart Modem Gen 2. The box says "FTTN and FTTB".

Two days ago, I received the NBN device. Apparently my NBN is "FTTC".

Wondering if Smart Modem Gen 2 will work with FTTC.

Thank you.

It is compatible, the Telstra Smart Modem Gen 2 works with ADSL, cable and all NBN types. You connect the Smart Modem via the red WAN port the the NBN supplied NCD
I work for Telstra, but my opinions are my own and not that of Telstras

The Smart Modem is compatible with all types of NBN connections. On a FTTN and FTTB the modem is connected to NBN via the DSL port. On a FTTC connection the modem's WAN port is used to connect to the NBN.

Telstra only has 1 modem, that works with all the different techs. You got a different 'manual' for your fttc
