As some of you may know, Draytek produce a range of Routers and modems for the UK that comply with BT SIN498
I have recently contacted DrayTek to ask them regarding the progress of their new Vigor 166 which is suitable for BT (UK) g.fast connections
DrayTeK (Taiwan) have responded as detailed below and we are looking like later this year (my glass is half full) for its arrival to the UK ;-)
Thank you for your interest in DrayTek solution.
The Vigor 166 (G.Fast) are now under development by DrayTek RD teams. Vigor166 will be launched and will be taken through approvals and certification. But we do not have a schedule for that yet. We hope it to be during 2019.
Ok, so I contacted DrayTek yesterday regarding the release of there new DrayTeK 166 G.fast modem and there response is below.
Due to the pandemic, the approval and certification from BT have been delayed. We do not have schedule for the release of Vigor 166 yet.
looking like 2021 before we realistically have any sight of the Vigor 166 in UK
