ONT Phone Port Access.
« on: December 23, 2020, 03:50:39 PM »

ONT Phone Port Access.

If and when we get our local PON lit up and ready to order FTTP, 'IF' I was able to get an 'Older' type ONT with a 'Phone port' does anyone know if access is still available to that port for a VOIP connection. ?

No, that was for FVA, Fibre Voice Access provided by Openreach and is no longer available.

Ok thanks, so it's either stopping with our bt phone line if I can get it down to 11.99 pm once we have FTTP and the ADSL2 is removed or get a ATA box for VOIP.

If you manage to get a 4 port ONT it would give the option using a 2nd port for a low bandwidth (0.5Mb/0.5Mb) FTTP VOIP service.
It's designed for anyone with FTTP who wants a landline without broadband, but nothing stopping you using it on another port to your broadband service.

I'm not sure how many ISP's sell this.

BT retail can only provide FTTP broadband on Port 1.
No idea if their low bandwidth VOIP option works on other ports.

I'd be surprised if BT ever sell VOIP over a rivals broadband connection.
If they don't it would mean anyone who currently has broadband from 1 provider and landline from BT, would not have that option with a 1 port ONT.
It would need a 2nd ONT which for many homes there is no capacity for a 2nd fibre/ONT on their CBT or splitter.

BT supply Digital Voice from the hub with FTTP. The hub acts as a DECT base station. https://www.bt.com/help/landline/what-is-digital-voice-and-how-can-i-get-it-
