Unifi USG for BT Fibre 900


[link to this post]
 
Hi is anyone using the Unifi USG or USG Pro with BT FTTP fibre 900?

Looking for advice on doing away with the BT hub and going the full Unifi route (APs, switch and USG) but not sure if the USG can handle the WAN speeds. Was also looking at Amplifi Alien, Amplifi HD or the Dream Machine as other options but again i'm not sure how well they work on fibre 900.

Thanks.

I am using a UDM and it is fine. I will get over 950 MB with Intrusion detection off and about 870 MB with it turned on.

Good wifi coverage although the software is in need of fine tuning if you want a well polished product and all the bells and whistles that go with an enterprise level product. I would like it to have an ad filter but that is taken care of with a Pi-hole.

Thanks for the reply. Do you have Pi-hole running on a pc?

I might try to set up the Pi hole in a container running on the UDM using UDM-utilities which looks like a neat script although a bit beyond me at the moment.
