Hi everyone.

Currently my house has 2 ADSL connections to it. Mine (Im the owner of the house). And the other one is for 1 of the flatmates own use. He works for Vodafone and gets a staff discount, therefore makes sense for him to use it.

UFB will be available in my street in Jan. And since Vodafone now offer UFB both of us could potentially be wanting to connect. What would happen here? Would 2 fibre lines and 2 ONTs be installed? Would both routers be connected to the same ONT? Or has this situation not happened yet anywhere else?

I am asking now since Im considering switching ISPs and if 2 UFB connections are not possible. It would make sense to get the flatmate who works for Vodafone to make his connection available to the whole house. And me to give him cheaper rent so he can switch to a plan with more data. And in the meantime I will just stay with my current ISP.

Thanks.

As I understand it the ONT has 4 ethernet ports each of which are configurable to a different ISP, so your flatmate could get Vodafone on port 1 and you could get SNAP on port 2 (for example).

Im in the same boat here, except still no eta on fiber.

After discussion with chorus they will do it either both on one ONT, or as I have to aerial cables in that would be replaced with fiber end up with 2 ont's, one in the flatmates room and one in my server closet.

Had I only had one cable coming in, it would be a single ONT only with me having to deal with the internal cabling to get the ports run to where they needed to go.

Now that is assuming that the govt is still paying for installs when my street finally gets done.

It's not a supported scenario yet. Unless things have changed recently the 2nd install will also be rejected.

Why not? Isn't it in the requirements the local fibre companies have to meet...

Depends on how they do it

2 services on the same ONT is a no-no unless it's for the same client as the LFC see's the ONT as assigned to a client not a house.

2 services on 2 ONT's is a MDU which is allowed and possible however most LFC's are putting MDU's on the backburner as the contracts make it better for them to chase simple installs




Most problems are the result of previous solutions...

All comment's I make are my own personal opinion and do not in any way, shape or form reflect the views of current or former employers unless specifically stated

My understanding (assuming you are in a Chorus Zone) is that separate services off the same ONT is still being developed. In the mean time 2 services can be ordered and delivered via two ONT's.
