Re: Combined fibre modem router

At the moment, as part of the FTTC installation, we require an engineer to install an Openreach.
An all in one solution is something we may potentially look at for self installs in the future.

Re: Combined fibre modem router

I thought Openreach was gearing toward the self install route.

As far as I'm aware, it's something they offer as an option.

Re: Combined fibre modem router

A combined modem would be good.
I certainly would prefer "self-install" - this would certainly tempt me to go back to Sky or change to BT in the near future.
