Hi

 

My house is pretty old, and we are currently trying to get fiber installed. Is this the ETP? And can landline be connected from the fiber ETP to this?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thanks

Yep, that looks like the 049 coming in and terminating. Looks like you actually have two..

 

 

 

Nice to see a master filter all installed in there.

 

In terms of Fibre Voice, providers such as spark do integrated wiring installs, so the ONT voice is connected to the copper loop (which is disconnected from chorus at the ETP) and preforms like normal phonelines.

Thanks. I was wondering because for some reason we don't have any phone ports downstairs, but I would prefer for the ONT to be installed downstairs. Will Chorus be able connect the landline from the ETP to this?

Do you have an aerial installation (ie pole to house), and does it only come in to the top floor?

 

Generally the installers work on placing the ONT behind the tv, with a reasonable distance to the master phone socket (which was typically the kitchen or the front door). If your old phone connection is upstairs, I wouldn't expect the standard install to cover going upstairs etc

 

Best to talk and agree before you sign anything....

Iw install, essentially what is done is the nearest or easiest point to tap into to get into that loop is accessed.

Another jack is put next to the ont, patch cable from fon1 to jackpoint.
In terms of feasibility of it ultimately would be up to the techs but id its ordered it should be done.


Im not sure what other isps do a iw agreement/install though.

Not an aerial installation, and installers did visit today. They said that they could run the fiber from the garage by drilling a hole through the floor to our second floor study, where our current modem is. They also said something about not being certain where the other end of the hole would be when drilling from the top to bottom, which concerns me a bit. We also need fax (if possible) which AFAIK only works with hybrid cables.

If you require fax, you will need to keep your copper service intact.

 

 

 

If this has not been already entered by your RSP contact them ASAP and have the order changed.

Oh c'mon.. walk on the wild side! The only places I would feel uncomfortable doing fax over IP is at a Lawyers or Doctors office. Everyone else just doesn't do the volume to see the little annoying faults.

 

But seriously OP - ideally you would move your faxing to a "fax to email" type solution because you will struggle a lot if your provider doesn't give a decent method for faxing over IP. Or just stay stuck paying $50 for a POTS line... until 2020 that is I suppose.

fair point, was on the back of the OP stating they were looking at the hybrid cable however.

 

 

 

While it can work, atleast in my position i can't promise it...

That would scare me into hiring a competent sparky to do it instead.

 

Also fax? Really?
