I upgraded last week to PureFibre X from my old PureFibre 1 Gbps service. I had an ActionTec 3200M + Alcatel/Lucent ONT.
Here's what I received from the tech
- Nokia ONT with a single NBase-T RJ45 port (capable of 1 Gbps, 2.5 Gbps, 5 Gbps, and 10 Gbps)
- That's it.
I happened to have an Orbi RBR50 Wifi 6 mesh hub with a 2.5 Gbps WAN port, so we hooked the ONT into that with Cat 6, and the Actiontec 3200m was in turn wired into that (to manage my STBs). This way I verified with Speedtest that the speed is as advertised, we saw 2.3Gbps up & down.
I also purchased the inexpensive ($170 CAD) Qnap 1105 5-port 2.5 Gbps ethernet hub, and verified it works fine to get an extra wired connection at the 2.5Gbps speeds, though I'd need a a router outside of the Orbi if I wanted that connection on my internal network.
Is Telus going to be providing gear capable of using these speeds? Telus is marketing PureFibre X with the new Telus Wifi 6 hub have, has anybody received it, is it any better than the Arcadyan Wifi 5 unit, does it have any 2.5 Gbps LAN ports?
The Hub does have a 10G Ethernet port available that will allow you to connect with capable hardware.
I would be interested in knowing just what model of Nokia ONT Telus installed? Pictures would be great if your so inclined to attach them...
I suspect that the SFP+ module must be removable from the unit is that an accurate assessment as well....
Look to future proof my network install, and wanted to make sure that I don't make and error on the headend equipment that I currently have installed here...
