You can't use any VDSL modem, or bridge the one you have?

Modern Fritzboxes cannot be bridged any more, at least the ones that
also do SIP, since one would lose the phone features of the box.

One possibility is to use a separate router (or Linux machine)
connected to the LAN port of the modem and use PPPoE pass-through, if
the Fritzbox supports it and the ISP allows multiple PPPoE sessions.

I use this solution with the VDSL gateway provided by Telecom Italia.


"any VDSL" modem is hard to find on the market, and if it is found, it
costs > 100 Euros, way more than a Fritzbox.

I have not yet been this curious.
