Still a RED LOS light as it stands so we may meet again! Luckily I know the fibre is good as he fired the port up remotely with his laptop to get the light reading... but the port shut itself off again after a few minutes due to it not being configured for service yet.

The journey is over! LOS light just changed to solid green and PPPoE session came straight up :) Welcome to the fast lane!

Haha was going to add one later, third world problems I know but only able to pull max speed from my own dedicated server! The speedtest.net servers are all over the place at the moment.

I do have a pretty graph direct from the router - https://pasteboard.co/K4UbR4J.png :)

Now its all sorted I guess its time to speak to PN about ceasing the last PSTN line.... end of an era!

Yeah I think I will move mine to AAISPs VoIP service once I get FTTP (as its not tied to an ISP right now).

I was considering just putting it on sipgate but as my mum uses the landline when she wants to make a long call and isn't sure if she has enough credit on her phone, it makes more sense to keep it on a billing system rather than top-up credit.

So it turns out when you have gigabit speeds a virtualised router is not what you need! Moved pfSense to bare metal and now hitting the top speeds :) also reduced ping by 5ms!

Ah, I had failed to notice that small point.  :D
