Vodafone Gigafast - some questions


[link to this post]
 
Looking at getting a Vodafone Gigafast conection and was wondering what phone numbers they give out if I don't transfer my current one to it, are they standard 01, 02 numbers or something else? and is there a port on the ont/router to plug in a normal wireless phone set?
Also would they be happy to run the cable into the house via an airbrick to save drilling a hole in the wall?
Thanks for your help smile

The phone number I was provided was in the standard 02xxx geographical range for my area.

There is a phone port on the router and an adapter in the box to plug in any phone with a standard BT plug.

I'm sure the installation engineers will route the incoming cable where you wish within reason, and anything that makes their life easier and is still safe they will gladly go along with.

Thanks for your reply flilot
I've done a quick search on the fourm for the size of the cityfibre ont but only been albe to find referances to the BT/OR ones which seem smaller than I imagined they woud be.
Would it be possible to do a quick measure of the size of the ont for me as it's a bit difficult to guague the size from the picture on https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2019/12/1gbps-...
Thanks for your help.

The ONT used is Calix 801Gv2 GigaPoint
The datasheet for it is here, with the dimensions on the second page.
