Re: New to Uverse - How will this work?

said by mdpeterman:

FTTP installs aren't still limited to 18/1 are they?? We were able to order the 24/3.

Depends if it is BPON (18/1.5 Mbps max available) or GPON (24/3 Mbps max available)

I don't know of any GPON FTTP in my area, but that is a different model ONT than I typically see also

That is so weird considering BPON is clearly more than capable of delivering those speeds. Any ideas if they are still doing new BPON installs? This complex is still mostly under construction. Uverse was just added to the buildings this fall. Hoping it's GPON.
Anyone know if the ONT I showed is GPON?

The inside of the cover door should have the model number of the ONT as well as whether it is BPON/GPON -- I assume that is a GPON model, as it looks a little different than the BPON ONT models used in the areas I work

BPON installs are done in areas where the existing network is BPON. I assume any complete new builds will be done GPON, but that is in the hands of the engineers
