Question about FTTH

So I know FTTN (which I have now, Fibe25) uses pppoe login to authenticate and get onto the network, but looking at the Fibe50 and higher, the straight Fiber to your home, how do they authenticate? I pressume it's not with PPPOE, is it a direct connection like cable?

I use a home setup for work and it's very picky, i've had countless phone calls about it, and it seems it only works perfectly with PPPOE.

I'm looking to upgrade, and just curious about these specifics.

Thanks All

why would it be any different? the only difference is the cable thats run to your house is fibre optic instead of twisted pair. you still have a modem at the other end this should not change.

dunno i just figured things would change. Glad to hear it's still PPPOE and things may work out for me.

Anybody know what type of modems are used?

Thanks for all the help.

Technically, it is not a modem, it is an Optical Network Terminator which switches signal from optical to/from electrical. The ONT also provides service monitoring and management facilities to the network operator.

As for which model Bell uses, it is a Sagem F@st. Not sure exactly which model.

FTTH is only available to some brand new subdivisions in Whitby.
