FTTC Migration


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone migrated from one FTTC supplier to another recently? Does it still require an OR engineer visit?

So long as ISP does not mess things up (Robertos) then it should not require a visit is the consensus.

Thanks. My migration is due to take place tomorrow and at no point has an engineer visit been mentioned but I wasn't sure if OR insisted on an engineer attending to swap a couple of Ethernet cables.

Normally just like a standard migration with a MAC.

Simply changing the user/pass (and IP if req) in the router is all you need to do.

Hi griff,
I have migrated twice and neither required an engineer visit.

Cheers for the confirmation.

You must have been a really early FTTC user to have migrated twice already!

Not that early no. I think it was the same time as you (ish), and correct me if I am wrong but we were both with BE* ( I think we had this discussion on the BE forum...if you were not with Be then apologies).
I went from an Entanet FTTC reseller, to AAISP FTTC and then to BT Infinty which I am currently with.

I was with Be, if we've spoke on there then my apologies for forgetting.

You must have left Be earlier than me as I've only been on FTTC for just under 18 months (only enough time to migrate once with the 12 month contracts in force).

It was a brief conversation on the forum a long time ago, so no apologies required.
I think I had FTTC a month or two after you ( a lot has happened since then lol)
I got out of both contracts with those previous companies while still being in contract but that's a different story smile .
