We don't often perform 'unboxing' articles about routers, but iiNet's Budii deserves one considering how much effort the ISP has put into the packaging and aesthetics of its latest offering.

The Budii is an all-in-one modem-router that's designed to serve today's networking and Internet connectivity needs, in addition to being 'future-proof' thanks to some expansion options.

The package we're unboxing here consists of the modem-router unit, a VoIP handset, a charging frame, and also an Android tablet. We'll bring you a full review of the package once we've had a comprehensive play around with it.

A cool, Apple-inspired plastic sleeve wraps around the package, making it look very elegant.

This is now my second Budii and both nothing but trouble. Now handsets going back. Can't find the problem. Westnet (iinet) great but hardware crap. I'd prefer old modem and handset.

Budii will NOT become your buddy !
Westnet has been my IP "buddy" for 13 years with excellent service... but things change !
My Budii is boxed up and gathering dust waiting for the contract to expire.
Informing them of this, via email, did not even rate a response.
The entire process is too long winded to re-live here but basically I now have a stable system back by removing the Budii. No more rebooting every day or so, no lost messages and no longer looking at a tablet that would make a good paper weight, and nothing else!
Whatever happened to the real Westnet, and reliable hardware....? or even the manners to respond ? Please beware of the Budii !!
