I am informed that the installation of FTTP in my village is now complete. I've been in touch with a couple of potential ISPs e.g. Zen. I'm being told that I need an "FFTP enabled" router. I'm not clear as to the full implication of this statement.
I currently use a TP-Link TL-WR841N router. This is what I have always known as a cable router (i.e. not an ADSL device) which has a 100Mbps WAN port. Nowhere do TP-Link describe it as FTTP enabled but I see no reason why its WAN port shouldn't be capable of being connected to the ONT of an FTTP line running at 80/20Mbps. Having said that I have no direct experience of FTTP so perhaps I am missing something here? (I appreciate that if I were to choose a connection faster than 100Mbps I would need a router with a Gigabit WAN port.)
The only other consideration I can think of is the processing capability of the router. To-date I have had a considerably slower connection but perhaps my current device lacks the grunt to cope with something closer to 100Mbps?
