Internet package comes with a free rental of the Actiontec v1000h(for just TV customers, with or without Internet). 

Or a free rental Zyxel vsg1432(for just Internet subscribers)

 

For Internet-50Mbps that require bonded lines, there is the free rental Actiontec V2000H

 

Both are Gateways(modem/router) and at this time Telus is not allowing Bridge mode on them. Putting your own router to it causes double NAT, unless bridging your own router.


You can buy your own if you want, but notice the difference between Adsl and Vdsl. Telus will provide no support for your own hardware.

 

If you have fibre to the home(GPON), the ONT(optical network terminal) is the modem.

Welcome to BC/AB, yes as mentioned above all TELUS internet services come with a wireless Gateway.  If you are an internet only customer, you're more likely to receive a ZyXel.  If you bundle with Optik TV, then it will be an Actiontec.
