My understanding is that new apartment builds have the ONT pre-installed in each unit, to prevent a million chorus callouts on the first day. Does anyone know if the new fancy Hyperfibre ONT is being installed, or is it a matter of getting the "old" ONT replaced?

Recently renovated Pipitea Street Apartment in Wellington had a Type 300 installed in a hallway closet, in each room were 2x CAT6 outlets routed back to a panel next to the ONT

 

They even labeled the SAMID, and ONTID, made ordering services super easy and no risk of activating the wrong ONT

From what the Chorus boys on here have said about the Hyperfibre ONT's, I would assume they would just install standard Gen 3 ONT's. The hyperfibre ONT's are crazy expensive.

I suspect the developer pays for the in-fill as part of developing the apartments, there is only so much tax payer funded fibre to go around

The Hyperfibre ONT is far more expensive than the Gen 3 ont.

 

 

 

Gen 3 is default for all installations, Gen 2 is used for BS3/4 services and places where two POTs ports are required.

 

Hyperfibre ont (Type 400) is only used on hyperfibre - currently a swap back to a standard plan would be an ONT swap is what i'm told.

 

 

 

there is atleast 1 LFC out there that has subdivisions that are all XGSPON ONT's but their ONT selection for that is quite different to chorus's. It's quite an interesting model, and both sides of the coin make sense in different situations.

Cheers :) I know that the hyperfibre ont is 4x4 wifi whereas the gen 3 one is 2x2 (once it's an option later in the year?). So good to know I'll want to be getting my own 4x4.

You are assuming your provider will use the RGW wifi.

Yeah. I figure that $1/month is better for them than the costs and logistics of a standalone device...

Depends on provider really. There are without doubts perks to the product. but it's not the sort of product the average family household would likely consume IMO.

 

 

 

I personally was almost more keen to throw and AP on it and let it do it's thing though. Given it's right on the termination point, it handles Traffic Queuing exceptionally in my throughput tests.

My first glance reading of your comment was:

 

I won't be getting Hyperfibre unless you are getting Hyperfibre. 😄

Watch that Cat 6 outlets in each room are usually only installed by a sparky who probably havent tested them. If you can't get gigabit you may have to re-punch in the wires properly. Theres also no guarantee that the hub actually has a data panel, some apartments just have them wired in parallel on a voice panel so no ethernet to the rooms.





Time to find a new industry!
