Yup. This doesn't really the solve the issue that you can easily saturate your connection to domestic hosts while your connection slows to a crawl, even sometimes when only connecting to Australia. The rest of the internet isn't keeping up with us.

Can you opt-out of using the ONT as your RGW?



Yes, the order can be placed as either RGW or Bridge mode.



Does the 10Gbe port support 2.5GBASE-T and 5GBASE-T? As I have older structure cabling around the house.

10G will work for short distances over even cat5e friends have found between switch and nas and switch and workstations in their building that was cabled in the early 00's. Dont panic yet. I would have prefered to see an SFC on the ONT so that I could just use direct attach cables when possible.

Latency can reduce speed, and we're a ways away. I can get to my max 20Mbps upload to the USA with one or threads, and with 50 threads could probably do a heck of a lot more.

Always exciting to see the state of the art moving along. Although the uses are limited now and the cost prohibitive to most, it's always great to have options which will become valuable to more in the future.

 

 

 

In the immediate future however, this is still useful - providing 1gig service over XGS-PON will allow last-mile connections with much lower contention and thus more reliable speeds for those in contested areas.

 

 

 

That is, of course, if Chorus choose to deploy it in that manner. I guess an ONT upgrade would be required to allow this, though...

I see no mention of UFB2 areas, do they already have the XGS-PON installed?

Except there is no congestion on current GPON and very little likelihood of that for years to come even with significant traffic growth.

Just found this (overpriced) offering from Asus that comes with a 2.5gig port: https://www.asus.com/nz/Networking/ROG-Rapture-GT-AX11000/

 

 

That looks more like a spaceship than a router!

Might allow for a symmetrical gig service to be offered tho, which may help a small lot of people out. I struggle to fill my 500 up tho because all the cloud backup and syncing stuff seems to hobbled.
