Hi rayrayj,

 

 

That's a good question, there are some minor differences, such as a more User friendly gui.

 

The T1200 router is not dual band though, it simply has 2 antennas just like the V1000.

 

Thanks.

 

Hope this helps.

Hi rayrayj

 

Sorry for the misunderstanding.

 

I can tell you that at the moment the only differences are the following:

 

- High Speed 100mbps (depends on the availability in your area)

- The ability to watch 4 HD channels at the same time (coming soon)

 

Besides these 2 capabilities, there is nothing else that the T1200 can perform that the V1000 can't do.

 

Thanks

 

Hope this helps.

Hi rayrayj,

 

The only difference between the T1200 and the T2200, is that the T2200 is a loop bonded modem, which is needed for people who want High speed internet and/or Optik TV and who might live in an area where a single bonded modem, such as the T1200 or the V1000 might not fulfill.

 

A t2200 modem can provide service through 2 phones lines instead of just one.

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks

Hi

 

I'm happy to hear that you want to upgrade and take advantage of Telus's products and services.

 

To answer your question, it's best to speak to a Representative at Telus, the reason why is because it's impossible for me to determine your availability through this forum. While one of our reps on the phone will be able to get those answers for you right away and answer anything else that you have a concern about also.

 

Again it all depends on availability, I can't make any guarantees just on what you are telling me at the moment.

 

Our number is 310-2255.

 

Hope this helps

 

Thanks

fibre to the home will just use the Ethernet WAN port on the Actiontec, so the only gateway needed is the T1200H or old V1000H.

 

You can call Telus to request the T1200H, for better Telus router performance(modem portion is not used on fibre) and as a side, you can ask for the 4HD stream package.

 

That new 4HD package is for new Optik users, those that move their service(reinstall) and needs the T1200H/T2200H for the stream capacity.  Local hardware qualifications will also need to be met. Existing users can call in to Request 4HD if available in their area.

 

 

4HD streams also require the newer Telus TV box hardware. Plus a Tech visit to ensure quality control of service changes.

 

ISB7105(wireless/ethernet TV box).  ISB7150(PVR).

T1200H can be used on fibre.   No need for the loop bonding T2200H. The only difference is the second Phone line port, which slightly increases the cost of the T2200H hardware to Telus.

 

The gateways that DSL ISP's now use, have the ability to be used with copper and with fibre.

 

There are two WAN ports. Only one will be in use at a time.

One for phone line(copper, which requires the modem capability).

One for Ethernet(Optical Network Terminal, which is the modem), which does not need the modem capability and only uses the router capability of the T1200H/V1000H.

 

 

Technical stuff........

With Fiber to the home, you can use your own router. Real easy with just a internet subscription. Once you add TV, you can use your own router(and no Actiontec), provided you know how to manage the multicast traffic of the Optik TV.

Another way is to put a network switch at the ONT, then you add you own router for internet, while using the Actiontec for Optik TV.  Telus will provide 2 IP address, resulting in two networks that don't see each other.
