FTTPOD 2nd port?


[link to this post]
 
Dear all,
I'm intending to get a FTTPOD Connection via Cerberus- it is data only connection no landline. Is there a 2nd port on the FTTP connection- so than I can also get BT Infinity 4 at the same time?

Thanks
Radii

Depends.

Openreach are introducing a new ONTE that only has one port.

Do you really have the need for 2 330mbps connections blush

I believe Openreach will begin installing the new single data port ONT from Oct, so chances are you will get the new model.

Out of interest how much are you paying Cerberus in one-off costs and in monthly service charges?

I know right, we are heavy users here and Infinity 4 300Mbits is fine for us.

Also the new ONT even though they might only have the one out port which you connect to the WAN port of the router, there is nothing stopping the ONT passing all 4 connections through that port.

Has anyone actually checked the specs for the new ONT, the port might be a 10G, 1G etc port and they might bring a new bit of kit that splits them.

Hi,
No don't need 2 x330 connection-- I ideally want BT infinity 4. But BT retail and BT business don't sell FTTPOD. If I get Cerberus FTTPOD will I be able to switch to BT Infinity 4 or will I have to start from scratch...I hope not as the infrastructure will be in place.

They are quoting 90 day lead time now.
Cost 4.5k+vat install, 90ex vat monthly 3yrs. >200/month cheaper than Fluidata

Once you have FTTPoD installed, then your property shows native FTTP availability on the BT/OR DSL checker. After your Cerberus FTTPoD service goes live then sure, you can migrate that service to BT Infinity 4 service provided you've completed your min term (3 years?) or pay off the contract early with Cerberus and then migrate to BT Infinity 4 or any other native FTTP service - it wouldn't make sense to do the latter though.

BT Infinity 4 is a native GEA-FTTP product and thus not available on Fibre on Demand connections, after the 3 years minimum term for FoD is over then things may be different.

So switching after 3 years yes possible, adding as a second connection, probably technically possible but not going to be something that usual sales know about, definitely not the consumer sales side and even business side is going to struggle.

The 90 ex vat is their standard FTTP pricing.

FTTPoD is £300+ ex vat.

This was discussed on another thread yesterday.

No, its fluidone who charge £300+vat per month for FTTPoD. I've just spoken to Cerberus and indeed they charge £87+vat per month for FTTPoD on a min 3 year term + one-off construction charges. So it appears Fluidone are no longer the sole supplier of Openreach based FTTPoD.
