Hi all,

For the benefit of people that want to choose an ISP for UFB, and already have a router that may not support VLAN tagging, I've decided to maintain a list of the various ISP requirements.

Without further ado, here's the information that I have:

ISP: VLAN Tagged - Authentication - Voice
Actrix: ? - PPPoE
Bigpipe: No [1] - PPPoE
Compass: No - PPPoE - ONT
Inspire: No - PPPoE - RGW
Megatel: ? - ? - ONT
Mynxnet: No - PPPoE
MyRepublic: No - DHCP - ONT
Nova: Yes - PPPoE - RGW
Now: Yes - PPPoE - ONT
Orcon: Yes - DHCP - RGW [2]
Skinny: No - PPPoE
Slingshot: Yes - PPPoE - RGW
Spark: Yes - PPPoE - ONT
Stuff Fibre: Yes - DHCP - ATA [3]
Taylor Broadband: No - DHCP - RGW
TrustPower: Yes - DHCP - ONT
Vodafone: Yes - DHCP - RGW
Voyager: Yes [4] - PPPoE - RGW
WorldNet: ? - ? - ONT
WXC: No - PPPoE - RGW
2degrees: Yes - PPPoE - RGW

There are other ISPs that I haven't looked at, and there are still a couple of incomplete entries. Can anyone supply any more details?

Thanks :)

[1] Untagged by default, but tagged is available by request.
[2] Voice details available here, although apparently the MAC address changes may not be required.
[3] ATA is apparently separate from RGW; see page 4 of this thread for some more detail.
[4] Tagged by default, but untagged is available by request.

we can also provision with VLAN tagging if the customer wants it, but the default is untagged.

Seems useful.
Would want to view in the future.

Yeah, I'd ultimately like to make it sticky, but getting rid of some of the ?s is a more pressing concern at the moment :)

Someone at Compass support told me their UFB is untagged DHCP.

One thing you might like to add to the table is how voice (if any) is delivered.  Voice via the ISP-supplied RGW is a PITA if you don't want to use their RGW.

Compass added :)

I considered adding voice but didn't want to fill the table up with too many question marks right off the bat. If anyone can provide any details around voice then I'll add them in.

BlackHand: Bigpipe: No[1] - PPPoE

Thanks, updated.

I'd take yitz's memory over mine as I've never been a Compass customer or done any setup for one.

Voice (to my knowledge)

WxC - RGW (?)
Spark - ONT (was copper)
MyRepublic - ONT
Compass - ONT
Orcon - RGW
Snap - RGW (if it wasn't for this I would be a Snap customer by now)
Slingshot - RGW (judging by the problems a friend in Auckland has had, the RGW is terrible too)

OK, have set Compass to PPPoE and have added those voice settings.

Might be useful to also state whether the ISP has an automatic provisioning system alongside authentication. 

i.e. whether they push out configuration to the supplied RGW based on serial number, other forms of registration on to the network, or manual username/password credentials required.
