That looks great. Why the difference in speed tests?

Thanks. I have done number of tests on speedtest.net and it's coming up over 300Mb download and on the thinkbroadband.com website is coming up as 280Mb, not sure.

Thanks mate, hopefully if they have started work in your area, it shouldn't be too long, before it becomes available to order.

That larger box cover is good - much better than my job where they just left the battery backup and terminal box+wires exposed.

I have wondered why they didn't rename the TEL1 to TEL and Port1 to Data on the 1 Port ONT's, why they left the number on it I don't know.

Also not a fan of the new look, I prefer the 4 Port ONT, at least with that if Port1 dies the config to be moved to one of the other ports.
But maybe I have just got use to it.

To save confusing Openreach staff ??

To stop ISP’s having an excuse of ‘further trading required’ for their support staff ?
