Just thought people might be interested:


I had a reply back from BigPipe today to tell me they do full 1500 byte PPPoE now on fibre, 1500 Ethernet plus 8 byte PPPoE - 1508.


I'm with Spark but switching back to BP soon (BP couldn't offer fibre where I am earlier) so I asked them about MTU as a while back they only did the standard 1492 PPPoE. I get 1500 with Spark and a Mikrotik router setup for it but glad to hear BP now support it too. Saves mucking around reducing VPN MTU's because of the PPPoE overheads.

Yep they've supported this for quite a while - also 1508 on IPoE too.
