Not sure what to do, do you fancy doing it first and letting me know how it goes? tongue


Yeah OK!

Do you have a 4-port ONT? or a single port ONT? It seems certainly that they have no migration process which is madness.

I could push them down a new install. I can handle the visit as the ONT is in my wife's office not mine, and she will clean him thoroughly with anti-bac wipes. However it will be potentially stopped as non-essential leaving me swimming i the wind for the foreseeable.

I could handle a day or two interruption and use a wifi dongle for work as we won't have any guests. My concern is if that dragged into weeks the kids will kill me.

I only have the 1 port ONT, mine was installed 12 months ago.

Sounds like a similar situation to me, kids and wife would go nuts after a few days!

I'm just waiting to hear back from Cerberus regarding the cancellation process and then will make a decision. I assume there isn't any notice period if you're coming to the end of your contract..?

I use PfSense so i all i need from BT is the line activated and that's it. Surely that's almost instant these days....


48 hour activation for me and I already have service from them. you also have to have their router, whether you like it or not. £9,99.

According to my contract (para 5.1 and 5.2), you need to give one calendar month's written notice of termination - even if coming up to the end of the initial minimum term - as it will automatically move to ongoing service.


Literally just dug mine out too, great! another £100 + VAT spend :'(

Be sure to post a speedtest when you're upgraded.

Correct me if I'm wrong, if everyone starts taking these higher speeds and starts to hammer them on a fully used 32 way split GPON the top speeds are not going to be great.

Edit: Changed from XGPON to GPON after reading candlerb post

Yet to be tested but you have a point.

Should be fine i can't see 10 different lines maxing out 1gbps for constantly long time it would be very unlikely.

Is the XGPON the number of houses sharing a connection? I remember the open reach engineer mentioning a 4 port something he installed outside the house and that it was weird they sent him such a small variant...

Standard GPON is 2.4G down / 1.2G up, which could be shared by up to 128 properties but Openreach's build rules share between a maximum of 32.

XGPON is 10G down / 2.5G up; XGSPON and XGPON2 are 10G down / 10G up. These would likely shared by the same number of properties. In fact, they can run side-by-side with standard GPON on the same fibres.

The 4-port thingy installed outside the house is probably a CSP (Customer Splice Point), a little box on your external wall where fibres are joined together.

Sounded more like a description of a CBT to me.
