Re: Two Accounts, one unlimited, one not, how is traffic charged

said by rowberto :

its actually called your B1, its calculated by the b1 login

"b1 login" is only for Bell customers. Wholesale DSL customers have the choice to actually set their username & password when they sign up with their provider.

Does Bell FTTH work this way too?

I'd like to know the answer to this question, too. In case one upgrades from FTTN (VDSL2) to FTTH.

Yes, with FTTH you still have a regular modem connected to the ONT and it still connects with a username like normal. Traffic is still counted by that connection.

If I recall correctly I remember seeing somewhere that the usernames are in a different format rather than their standard b1 ones (b2 I think?) that don't work on regular DSL, so using a 3rd party unlimited login probably wouldn't work on your FTTH connection either.

Correct. wholesale logins DO NOT work with the FTTH service
