Re: [TV] Fibe

said by Leathal:

So they should provide a single port modem that only the receiver plugs into and the receiver itself communicates with Bell. We don't live in the stone ages anymore so this is nothing new.

And seeing how their modems are so locked down anyway, they could easily disable the other 3 ports on a 4 port modem/router combo.

Couldn't they attach a switch to the one port and use both TV and internet? I'm sure there are ways that Bell could ensure that non IPTV traffic doesn't get to those who don't pay for internet but I guess they made the business decision not to.
