    Even if MA5600 is very old device, send us very new device, thanks very much.

  2. Samio

    We spared much effort to find a seller can provide a MA5600, we know MA5616 is more common, but we need 256 channel ADSL and VDSL in a dense village, expecting MA5600 arriving.

  3. Marcial

    We bought MA5600 with full configuration 14PCS 64-channel ADSL2+ boards, every board has tested with a test report, which makes my client satisfied.

  4. Chau

    You would not regret shopping at Thunder-link.COM. The prices are as low as anywhere else and the service is good. I will shop there again in the future.

  5. Don Kelly
