I don't know of any current modem/router combo devices with telephone service. 

The CAX80 (not released yet) has an integrated modem. but not telephone service.

You could get something like the cm1150v (if its compatible with your service) and then a seperate router.

To clear up something that might have misled @plemans are you talking about VDSL here? DSL over BT's telephone network with FTTC?

 

So you aren't looking for a modem/router with a voice socket? Just something that plugs into a DSL filter/splitter.

 

There hasn't been a new Netgear DSL modem/router, or even a standalone DSL modem, in quite some time. The DM200 has been around for some time but despite Netgear's products pages they are almost impossible to buy. There are a couple of modem/routers, but that's about it.

Experienced users often prefer this as it brings several benefits.

 

For a start you get a wider choice of routers. Netgear adapts only a limited number of routers as modem/routers.

 

You also get more frequent updates to fix security holes and a higher likelihood of new features. Modem/routers seem to be lower down on the priority list for that sort of thing.

 

The only problem is that, depending where you are, standalone DSL modems seem to be disappearing and now command silly prices.

 

Unlike BT's crap, you can use a Netgear DSL modem/router in modem only mode, but when I did that I ran into problems.

 

Just another user.

You can close thos thoread, I will wait and see what happens but why does all the munfsctor note made wifi 6 VDSL all in one router? When makinhg wifi 6 do they not think of costomers? I guess not as most peaple would replace their brand band router with thord party one its sad to see that all the routers make like netgear tplink and asus cant make VDSL all in one router with wifi 6 yet. I guess i will wait see what happens.

You'll have to translate that.

Just adding POTS interfaces with some built-in ATA isn't sufficient. Most ISP offering dual or triple pay solution make use of very different implementations, configurations, .... for Internet, VoIP, and IPTV. They typically only support using their own CPE (customer premise equipment == "router" or "modem/router*) because they can configure, maintain, and support it automatically. That's why third party routers have lost a lot of market share in many markets.
