Re: Ultrafast Fibre Plus

By the way ISPreview are now confirming that EE will be selling BT products:

EE’s high street shops will soon fully support BT products and services too in a multi-brand approach.

Thank God for that. Was beginning to think it was a figment of my imagination.  That said, think it’s unfortunate the EE staff only understand Sebo Croat.

Re: Ultrafyast Fibre Plus

Hi

Got am email to say engineer had visited and confirming installation date. Got home and saw this.

Will the fibre replace the copper wire (white insulation) to provide filtered and unfiltered signal? If so, would they use the existing hole in brickwork to feed the new cable? I also understand the ONT will connect to the WAN in the super Hub. Is that right? (At the moment I have Ethernet connecting Openreach modem to WAN on HH5)

Many thanks

There is no filtered/unfiltered signal with FTTP. The ONT is the modem. As regards the rest speak to the install engineer.

Re: Ultrafyast Fibre Plus

Your copper wire will remain in place to provide voice service as before.  They will install the fibre cable where you want within reason - this could be the same location as the existing copper wire or you could have it installed in a more convenient location assuming the spare fibre cable is long enough.

Will it?  With the intended removal of copper by 2025 (some hope!!) I would have thought the opportunity to move customers to FVA would be taken by any FTTP installs. Perhaps @Starwire might have some info on that?

Re: Ultrafyast Fibre Plus

I think FVA is only provided for new builds with FTTP only connections (ATA port provided by ONT).  At some point BT will be moving to VOIP as the solution for voice service and I expect there will be a new HomeHub which will have the ATA port built in - the copper connection will then not be required.  The new 1+0 ONT doesn't even have a voice port which would be required for FVA.

Like this, the Smart Hub 2 with the phone port?
