 @AlecR   When you get it please report what dsl driver version you have on it. The usual version is an 033 one which may or may not support G.INP and does not support vectoring.  Also unless it is an unlocked version you may have to get UART and possibly JTAG access to unlock it.  On some ISP ones you just need to reflash with the Jazztel firmware via UART access, that firmware has the 033 dsl driver.  On others you first have to replace the locked down bootloader via JTAG.

   As burakkucat indicates the HG622  is very good on adsl, on FTTC it is almost identical in performance to the HG612 with the old 035 dsl driver that Asbo provided for Hg612's.

I no longer have an HG612 and this was cheaper so I thought I would buy one :)

I'm still trying to obtain an HG612 at a reasonable price but I have nothing as of yet.

 @AlecR   What is the source of the HG622? and is it unlocked.

Is it possible to make the HG622 G.INP-compatible?

  It may or may not already be compatible.  You may be the first to find out.  If it is not compatible you may want a later firmware.  However I have not seen any firmware since available since the Jazztel version Asbokid used.  Hence me asking where you getting from? and when you get it which dsl driver it shows in firmware.

  You will have to see what comes and whether it is a locked down ISP version or a Huawei retail version.

Well the seller still hasn't shipped the modem which is rather frustrating.

Do any Chinese modems support vectoring?

  Generally those available from China are cheaper than things you get in the UK but don't have any other advantages.  Indeed the firmware on them is often a foreign  ISP version and often locked up. Sometimes you can find unlocked firmware but not always. You can need JTAG if the bootloader is locked.  The more recent models do tend to support vectoring and G.INP but you often can't be sure of this.  If you want something cheap try ebay,  if you have lots of patience ex ZEN TG589's and ZEN Zyxels VMG 1312's come up cheap.  I bought one of both these (ex ISP brand new) this year for about 20-30 but have not got round to evaluating their performance.  On my line error resistance rather than max speed is my priority.

I didn't think the TG589 supported VDSL?

That is both unfortunate and fortunate, in the same sequence as your above statement.

Ah, o.k.  ::)

Perhaps you would like to try the TP-Link Archer VR900?
