The TP-Link TD-W9970 Modem Front
The TP-Link TD-W9970 Modem Back

The TP-Link TD-W9970 is for use on any service on networks using Bells' DSL infrastructure. NCF sells these modems to all members.

This is the procedure NCF uses to configure a TP-Link TD-W9970 modem out of the box or after a factory reset. To learn more about configuring your particular modem, consult the manual.

Configure router for Dual-Mode ADSL/VDSL operation

Your router can support both ADSL and VDSL modes. If necessary, you could switch between ADSL and VDSL plans without having to buy a new router or even reconfigure your existing one.
