About this deal

Following pressure from MPs and BT’s competitors, a review was set up by the UK’s telecoms regulator, Ofcom. It was concerned that as BT owned the network most other broadband providers used, it held a monopoly over the UK telecoms industry, as well as an unfair advantage. There was also criticism that faults weren’t being fixed for competitor internet service providers (ISPs) as fast as they were for BT. The ONT tends to be installed inside your home (wall hung), usually near to where the fibre optic cable physically enters the property, and it’s primary job is simply to take that optical signal and convert it into an electrical one so that you can hook-up a broadband router via a standard LAN / Ethernet port. This whole thing is, as I’ve said, much more akin to cable / HFC network layout than point to point fibre and has to be considered in that way. The only reason cable operators in the USA allow customers to connect their own equipment is because they’re legally obliged and they hate doing it.

If you're having trouble with your broadband speed the device you’re using could be the cause of the slow speed. If possible try using another device to see if you’re having a similar problem on that one too. Moving your router won't make your Internet connection faster, but it should make it more reliable and stable – which can be important when it comes to streaming, video calling or online gaming. Without exception every PON installation I’ve seen in the UK has been delivered via a full fibre run inside the building with a splitter node or several in the basement or comms room.Try testing your Wi-Fi with more than one device – this will allow you to see if the issue is with your device rather than your broadband service Installations of Openreach’s ( BT) Fibre-to-the-Premises ( FTTP) based UK ultrafast broadband ISP technology will soon begin seeing a new Optical Network Unit (ONT), which is not only very compact (pictured top) but also comes in at a third of the cost of the existing unit. Obviously they’ve sacrificed a few little things.

Community and Voucher Funded - using a combination of DCMS vouchers and co-funding by the community and Openreach.There’s a couple of things you'll need to do to get the best results. You'll need to use a laptop or desktop to run the test, so if you're on an iPhone or iPad you should switch to a computer. Then: Here's a helpful guides to see you on your way: 'Switching to a provider on the Openreach network'. Expert Summary As far as the other part goes I can’t say I’ve ever seen a PON solution where the customers / building owner provide their own pig tails between units and a fibre tray. I’ve seen point to point where this is the case and there’re an ODF in a basement with wires-only or managed router provision at the end but not where it’s PON to an SFP.

Homeowners of new-builds have, in the past, complained about delays for phones and broadband. There’s also a concern that the Openreach set-up means there’s less need to keep prices competitive for customers. For properties built after 2000 - we'll need written confirmation that no known asbestos exists within the building from the Freeholder (Landlord). A letter stating this will be sent to the landlord to complete, sign and return. As examples of smaller units with a just a single gig port, the Huawei EG8010 is only 83mm x 69mm x 28mm and draws only 2.5w with the Nokia 7368 ISAM ONT G-010G-Q being 89 mm x 82 mm x 27 but states >4wFor the most part, you shouldn’t need to get in touch with Openreach unless you spot any dodgy damage to telephone exchanges - your broadband provider will arrange an Openreach engineer to come to you. However, it can be of help to those who don’t have access to broadband; either because they’re living in a rural community, or if they’ve moved to a new build.
