Those new ONTE's are just about to roll out .....

Apart from one user on here, and I believe that was some form of trial. I've not come across 4 ports being in use on a single ONTE ... been to two install where the whole shebang had been duplicated to provide two separate services at the same address.


Yeah I saw that. Why have they reduced the amount of ports?

First guess, cost, as ever.

I believe the BBU is to be integrated also. I was in the stores today, and they still only had the original stock.

If you had a one-port NTE and you ordered another FTTP connection wouldn't they just replace it with a bigger one? Sounds like a fairly simple thing to do...

Well depending on what FTTP packages you have, but they could just send both connections through the same WAN Port, so on a 1Gbit WAN Port it could support 3 Infinity 4 equivalent packages and the 3 routers connected via a Ethernet Switch would just handle each package and the equipment at the exchange will know where each router should go to.

In theory that is.

I doubt it would work like that, each ISP would want their connection to have a clear demarcation point i.e. a separate copper port, even if it is fed from the same fibre. So either you would need a multi-port NTE or separate fibres feeding single port NTEs.

Or you could just buy a premade splitter from Fibrestore for under a tenner and use four single port ONT's.

Which would be fine if it was dark fibre that you were lighting yourself - you wouldn't be able to split a FTTP fibre like that unless of course it was BT supplying the kit; but it is unlikely they would as they already have multiport ONTs that they can supply.

Well er actually you would. That is I could put my ONT behind one of those and other than a change in signal loss Openreach would not know. Then my neighbour on anyone on the same OLT could bring their ONT around and plug it into the splitter and it would just work on the proviso that the signal loss from inserting the splitter didn't put you over the edge and out of service.

The splitter is a completely passive device that's why they are so cheap.

And how exactly would you get a service to connect it to? You would have to order a product from BT Openreach (via an ISP) to actually be able to talk to something in the BT network. And as you would be ordering a product BT would provide the splitters/ONT - not you.

So, as far as I can see there is absolutely no purpose to an end customer buying such a device.
