raytaylor: I always thought that the ONT did the vlan tagging (like a managed switch does). So each ISP operating on the fibre network had their own vlan on the chorus network and their assigned port on the end user's ONT was also tagged with that same vlan ID. So multiple services could be provisioned to the same ONT by assigning each port with a different VLAN.

I assumed that when combined with DHCP option X? it would mean that any router could be used and just plugged in and end up working because the ONT inserted the line ID which the ISP's DHCP server would use to look up the customers IP address to assign.

Am i missing something here? Am i reading it right that you need to set your WAN port on your
router to also have a VLAN tag?


You set the VLAN tag on the WAN port of the router. This is the identical way existing EUBA services work for ADSL2+ and VDSL2 where VLAN10 is also used.

enozkeeg: I just got connected, my understanding is it will be free; the bloke - Ross who was the local PM for the group of about 4 people that connected me up said it was free so it damn well better be. Actually if you look at the small print it says most are free so long as you are not expecting them to connect you down a long driveway or something really complex then it is free, that was always supposed to be the case of the Govt roll out they are paying for it.


Chorus negotiated a much better contract than the other LFC's, this blog post explains the differences:

I don't know who's side you're on.  The consumer or the government aided near-monopoly company.
