Is the open reach fibre modem gigabit?

Is the open reach fibre modem gigabit?

10/100Mbs or 10/100/1000Mbs?

And if it is 10/100Mbs does that mean the BT HUB 5 combined router and modem would be faster?

Hi there,

 

The port is 10/100, as reported by my WNR3500L.

An old screenshot, but it illustrates what I'm saying (first line). Smiley Very Happy

Re: Is the open reach fibre modem gigabit?

So the Openreach ONT isn't capable of supporting speeds faster than 100Mbps?

 

Sorry, that's wrong. According to SIN 506, the ONT has 4 1Gb ports.

Dead link, bud. 😞

 

Also, WRT the ONT, I'm assuming they're referring to the FTTP modem, as opposed to the FTTC one, as the throughput on FTTP is higher and would saturate a 10/100 port.

Well, that is the link but they've changed the access path to get to it. So I removed it.

I thought we were talking about the ONT? "Openreach Fibre Modem" ?

LOL I thought we were talking about the FTTC variant, as that's the connection the OP has, according to his speedtest link. Smiley Surprised

Re: Is the open reach fibre modem gigabit?

I believe the OP was talking about the Openreach VDSL modem as they stated about using the HH5 instead of it.

 

When it comes to FTTP on the other hand the Openreach Fibre ONT will of course need to be installed as well as the endusers router (be that a HH or a third party router).

That's how I read the situation, too

Ah ok. Note you still use a HH5 with FTTP 😉

All openreach vdsl modems are 10/100

All ONT's are gigabit. 

Having a HH5 in place of the modem and router combo wont increase any speeds, theoretically anyway. You may find sync speeds vary slightly between all modems.
