If I change fibre providers to Spark, is it just a matter of plugging the supplied Spark modem into the ONT and I'm away laughing?

But you do need the right voodoo chant to really make sure!

Depending on who you are switching from, the old router may still just work.

 

If you are going for a landline plan from an ISP that uses the voice ports on their router instead of the ONT, you'd also need to switch your voice out from the old router and plug it into the right ONT port when the switch-over happens.

 

(only two things I can think of)

Thanks guys. Sounds quite easy. My landline is plugged into the modem and not the ONT.

Also what speed is the 200/200 plus plan? Is that like 300 up and down or..?
