Would like some advice please on changes to my set up that may be required if I upgrade to fibre (FTTC).
Currently I have a micro-filter which has 2 outputs. One to my modem and one for telephone. Since the fibre faceplates don't need micro-filters are there the equivalent 2 outputs on the faceplate itself?
On the telephone side I have a wired connection to a dect transmitter with a wired connection from that to a separate dect telephone base station and a wireless connection from the transmitter to 2 separate receivers which in turn have wired connections into 2 sky boxes.
On the broadband side, I have a wired connection into a modem and from that into an airport extreme. From there have a wired connection into a desktop and a wired connection to a 200 Mbps wireline transmitter and from that have 3 receivers - one connected to a sky box, one connected to an airport express at the back of the house and another connected to an airport express in the shed at the end of the garden. This gives me full coverage everywhere.
The Openreach estimate is 60.8Mb to my house. I want to know if the above will all still work with fibre or whether anything will need to be upgraded (I read somewhere about maybe needing 500 Mbps wireline?).
I am currently with Zen for BB and if I upgrade with them I guess I will only need a new modem but I am tempted by BT Infinity and would be given a home hub 5 which doesn’t have a separate modem. Can it be used simply as a modem with its router functionality switched off in order to preserve my network as it is since it is unlikely the airport expresses will be compatible with the HH5?
