I am getting UFB installed this friday (hopefully). I had a couple of questions that I was hoping someone here can help answer for me. The Chorus tech told me that they will be cutting the copper connection when the finish the installation. So my homephone will now be coming through via the fibre. My question is, so I assume that the phone ports in my house will become useless now? Where do I plug in my phone?
The tech said that Slingshot should have sent you a modem where you can connect in your phone. But I dont want to use the supplied modem as I havent heard the most positive things about it. I rather use my own one (I have a Dlink AC1750 DIR2890 model which is UFB compatible - it has a WAN port). So where would my phone be connected into?
Also, while on the subject, has anyone got any other recommendations for UFB modem routers?
Just a short comment on the chorus guy that came to install. He was looking to do a very quick job and he wanted to install the UFB end node at the very corner of the house (closest to the road) and seemed quite reluctant to position it near the centre of the house (where the current ADSL point is). I had to talk it through to him for a good 10 minutes to explain that I want it at the same location as the ADSL node as that is the centre of the house and wifi would be best from there. I didnt appreciate the tech trying to do a quick job as to what is convenient for him - many unknowing customers would just listen to the techs because the techs would know better.
