Will modem firmware ever be unlocked?

I have read that the Nokia fastmile 5g modem used in the optus 5g home broadband service has a locked down firmware from Optus which does not allow bridging, is there any chance of the firmware being opened up to allow more advanced features to be enabled.


The reason I ask, is because my network requires the modem to be in bridge to avoid double NAT.

@Uskompuf I don't think it will happen, the Optus supplied Huawei 4G devices that I have tried also do not allow bridge mode.
