Re: fttp

There are no pros but a con is that you won't have a connection if you turn it off.

@DaveBennett 

Do you mean with regards to it affecting the service?

I don't believe it's ever recommended to turn off a device like a Router, however as it's the PON device that handles the connection, I am not sure what effect it may have, if any.

Kind Regards

Re: fttp

That is not a con if I am wanting to turn off broadband at night to prevent access by a child overnight!

If it is turned off at the hub with the modem still working will it show up as an unstable line?

No. It is FTTP anyway so DLM isn't involved.

Re: fttp

The smart hub has a facility to disconnect the broadband but I have been unable to find any reference to its use.

What I would like to find out is if I use that facility will it reflect in the fttp circuit being seen as unstable such that the line speed is reduced.
