BT OPENREACH MODEM


[link to this post]
 
I my BT open reach modem has stopped working on my fibre line. Can I use a spare BT open reach modem I have from my last house. It is only 8 months old. Can I do a straight swap?

YES.

You should also call BT and tell them. They will send out a replacement - with an envelope to return the failed one. When you report it, just say " a friend has lent you a spare".

Is that correct - I thought that they insisted on sending out an engineer to fit the new one

Yes, they will send it out with a Technician. Although in a couple of cases I know of them just sending the modem. It would not matter though as teh equipment has failed and needs replacement.

I love to buy a kosher spare, so fleabay is of no use here.
