Legal Position Regarding Openreach Modem


[link to this post]
 
People often comment that you can't touch the Openreach modem (to hack it or replace it), what's the official position on this does anyone know? Whenever people mention this rule they never follow up with a link to any Ts&Cs, it certainly seems plausible but without evidence is it just a myth?

It is Openreach's demarcation point for their FTTC product, as the NTE is for their copper pair.

I read the BT infinity terms and there's no mention at all of the modem....

Why are you querying this any way ? If you have your own combined VDSL modem router, then go use it, but keep the Openreach modem for future reference.

So where did you read it, or did you just hear it from someone who heard it from someone who heard it from his brother's uncle's mate? Like I said it seems perfectly plausible, I don't doubt your sincerity, I'd just like one person to show me it in black and white

try this link to it on google

Reveals also that if you have the data extension kit, the warranty lasts 12 months, after which that is yours

FTTC modem becomes the active demarcation point
