cogeco ftth oakville phone problems? not ringing in.

trying to reach moms for the last few hours.

shes on ftth in oakville. When I call from a Bell cell or Magic Jack ATA it doesn't ring. I get dead air for about 15 seconds and then the connection dies.

Yet I can call other people from these two lines no problem at all.

Any issues in cogeco ftth voip land right now?

For the record, Cogeco uses RFoG for their FTTH installs. It is effectively no different than a home that is fed directly by coax instead.



Hey Now

@telus.com

Really FTTH dosn't have a fibre line run directly to your house and a MicroNode is used.Check your facts

Cogeco's FTTH deployed areas use RFoG and operate no differently than those that are fed using coax. The services and the end-user equipment is identical. Those are the facts. I already know those facts. The question is - do you?



Hey Now

@rogers.com

Yes I do What does RFoG stand for?? What is a Fiber line? Glass! in new homes regardless if it's bell,Rogers,Cogeco,Shaw that is FTTH, and your ISW are Coax. The equipment is the same regardless if it's FTTH or Coax are you telling me you want a fiber optic line directly plugged into various equipment so the user will play with it and maybe loose there sight. next your going to say. that a 35year old house that can get Fibe tv is fiber all the way through instead of 35 year old twisted pair in the house.

Those are the facts. Fiber optic lines are Glass

I have no idea what you just attempted to say.

All I will say is that the end user equipment and service offerings are identical with Cogeco regardless of whether you're served via coax into your home or fibre. The only difference is that when coax goes into your home the conversion to fibre is in a green box up the street, while with RFoG the conversion to fibre occurs with a mini node strapped to a battery and fed directly from your hydro meter on the side of the house. If you didn't know what you were looking for you wouldn't know the difference.



Hey Now

@rogers.com

Wow thanks for the lesson Now I know. How does that differ from Bell Or Rogers in A FTTH area? Do rogers and bell put Fibre Lines througout the House? So what your saying is that the Micro Node at the SOH, One leg goes to hydro, the other carry's RF and anf the modem goes of a 9DB coupler so that to attempt to bring the modem closer to 0DB.
Working for both Cable and phone companies I am all to aware how FTTH works. All I was trying to say is fibre lines are Glass. And for you to say RFoG isn't a fibre optic line is wrong

I never said fibre lines aren't glass. I also never said that RFoG isn't FTTH. I said it effectively operates no differently than if they wired coax right into your home. There is no advantage to it from the customer side, and there's no point in pointing out you're on an RFoG installation because your Internet service, digital phone service and television service is identical to anyone who has coax. That's what I said. No more. No less. How you read more into that is beyond me.

And sorry one more thing the conversion dosn't happen and the "green Box" down the street visit any new Subdivion in Milton, waterdown Burlington..... and the line is spliced in the CSE where the Mocro Node is placed. That's where the conversion happens

Gone is not disputing that Cogeco uses fiber to the home. He was simply correcting the terminology and pointing out that the service issue is not determined by the signal delivery, but rather a head end/ main mode issue.

There is still a "green box" and that is still where your main fiber is split for the sub division, the micro node will be on the side of your house in your CSE, that is where it turns from light to RF.

Right, and my reference to the "green box" was for areas that aren't using FTTH and instead are served with coax, since that's where the plant will convert from fibre to RF in "traditional" areas.

My point was that it doesn't matter if it's converted to coax in the green box or coax at the side of the house, the service is otherwise identical.

My bad, I re-read what hey now wrote and mis-understood what he was saying..
