#RouterFreedom Activity Package: The #FSFE has launched an activity package for organisations and individuals to raise awareness and empower them to advocate for users' device sovereignty in their countries.

Because it is the time to establish this right in all 27 EU member states, we need the help of organisations and individuals!


@fsfe especially since for the cable network in Germany it's a pain to get a compatible modem. Waiting now for 4 months since we have only one shop for those and they have long waiting times. Nobody wants a crippled provider router!

@grimneko Oh, that's bad. Which router are you looking for? These are really long delivery times.

Please also share your experience in our survey. This is useful data for us to argue with: survey.fsfe.org/index.php/6284


@fsfe A Technicolor TC4400-EU DOCSIS 3.1 modem (shop.wernerelectronic.de/anten). Originally I had a Cisco 3208 Modem Docsis 3.0 in use when I was a Unitymedia customer (supplied by them even), but since it became Vodafone that option is not available any more and my one died last year. It got replaced with their "Vodafone Station" which i hope to replace.

@grimneko @fsfe OK, modems are a bit harder to get. What about a cheap, used FritzBox cable? If you're lucky, you can get those for ~40-50€, and also use them as a modem basically (depends on your use-case though).

@mxmehl @fsfe Klingt zwar gut, aber dann bekomm ich die SIP Daten nicht. Zum anderen hab ich die Sorge das man mir dann eine Vodafone Firmware drauf aufspielt, und ich damit auf Sie für Updates angewiesen bin. Zumindest ist die Chance gut in nem Monat an ein TC4400 ran zu kommen. :)

@grimneko @fsfe Die SIP-Daten muss dir dein ISP allerdings geben, das ist im (aktuellen) TKG geregelt. Und ein Firmware-Zwang gibt es diesbezüglich auch nicht. Aber gut, viel Erfolg mit dem Modem! Und wie gesagt, gerne die Umfrage ausfüllen, das sind so Erfahrungen, die für uns sehr hilfreich sind – danke!

@mxmehl @fsfe Wieder etwas schlauer geworden, danke. :) Und das Survey hab ich direkt als erste bearbeitet, hoff es liefert nützliches.
