Sonic,

It's time for you to revisit your modem choices and add support a "bare" modem like the D-Link DSL-520B or Netgear DM-200. Given the emergence of mesh WIFI technologies like the Eero supported by sonic and other (potentially better) technologies, the integrated WIFI support of the existing Sonic DSL modems is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. It would cost the customers less and would really simplify setup for people who want to use mesh technologies in general (or whatever comes next).

On additional point, this would make DSL setup consistent Fiber connectivity where the ONT being the equivalent of the base DSL modem.

Thoughts and comments ...

Oh and BTW time to also revisit the "bare" option with no phone line. I pretty much never use my phone line provided with my DSL anymore. My family all calls my cell (or my wife's cell) so pretty much every call that comes in on it is just spam at this point.

I agree.
The pace is unsuited to all needs.
