The blog is a couple of years old now - before the days of intergrated hh5.

Hi,

 

I had FTTP installed approx. a month ago. My install is the same as shown in this image:

 So basically the same as shown in your image with updated ONT & BBU.

Yeah it's still the same. All FTTP still needs the ONT (optical network termination) device. The home hub 5 doesn't have an input for the optical cable.

@airgun Thanks! It'll make a difference to where I can install.
So - may I ask another stupid question?
Does the ONT work as a modem? I'm asking because, I'd like to replace the HH5 at some point (especially if a type A turns up.)
If it was FTTC I could just remove the HH5 with another router. With BT's move to integrated modem/router I don't think I could do that. (Unless the ONT functions as a modem)
Thanks for your help! 🙂

 

Edit: Thanks you too @Webby

Yes, essentially, the ONT is the modem, the hub 5 is purely a router for FTTP connections.

You can use your own router if you want, there are a number out there that are fine for FTTP, just make sure they can handle the 300mbps (if that's the package you go for).
