If you use a VoIP phone line (e.g. WxC VFX or 2talk), have you needed to do any special configuration to use it with UFB? 
I am planning on switching UFB provider, but unsure if my VFX phone line will work on Spark or Vodafone UFB.

I tried Bigpipe ADSL once, and had to tell them it wasn't working before it would work (Public IP set up - but not static).

What is your experience with VoIP after switching UFB provider?

I have the Myrepublic free trial at the moment, it works great and did not need any special configuration.

I can't comment on VFX but on Snap UFB their VoIP is as good as or better than a traditional copper line.

i have been on Snaps VoIP service since they introduced it. I started on ADSL, moved to VDSL then fibre and it's worked every time after a change of service with no change in the settings.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

It's not going to really make any difference.

If problems are going to occur they would be on low cost providers such as My Republic and Bigpipe that are using CGNAT rather than public IPs.
