Top Six ADSL Modem Review for April 2014

Top Six ADSL Modem Review for April 2014

I had intended for this to be a ‘top ten’ list of modems but I honestly couldn’t find ten that I thought were a good mixture of price, features and reliability.  Unlike other lists, this isn’t a list of modems that just hit the market (as I never trust modems unless they’ve been field tested for a few months) but rather my top six modems as of April 2014.

    I don’t know if it’s intentional, but clicking on the models, manufacturers, stars or prices in the reviews will add items to your Amazon cart.

      Nope doesn’t add them to your cart (if I had a way of doing that I’d be a millionaire and hunted by Amazon!) – it just links to the product on Amazon
