Re: What router will SKY be using on FTTC come April


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
So when they come to install fibre they will just connect a new modem up to the existing old ADSL1 faceplate I assume the engineer has a laptop to check it and then that is it?

Thanks

Pretty much, they may replace the existing faceplate with the new slot in VDSL one, have heard some do that, and some don't.

If they do, then get them to leave the old plate, as it provides a handy spare for you.

The old face plate filters were only characterised up to about 8-10MHz depending on type. The VDSL plates have been characterised up to 30MHz. Not to say that the old will not work but the performance in te higher VDSL bands can be suspect.

That is exactly what I expected to happen with my installation but it didn't

Not the way it should be done and any good OR technician will tell you it is wrong. Back wiring should NOT be used.
