- Can I get Hyperfibre
Hyperfibre is not available everywhere. Even if you have an existing fibre connection we might need to upgrade your hardware so a technician may still need to visit. Depending on your location we may need to upgrade the equipment in your area and so this may take longer than a standard fibre install.
The ONT will replace the current ONT at your address, if you don't currently have fibre a scoping appointment will be arranged and a technician can discuss the best place for fibre to be installed with you.
The Fibre 4000 ONT is not attached to the wall like the previous ONT's as it as all in one device it cannot be mounted to the wall (partly to make sure you can get the best placement for WiFi
Depending on the plan you choose, you could experience speeds of 2000, 4000 or 8000Mbps up & down but It will come down to how you connect and what speed your device is capable of.
we would recommend taking advantage of the 4 gig LAN ports on the ONT that way you can have a fast dedicated connection to things like your main TV for streaming (that way you can make sure your streaming is uninterrupted) or a Dedicated connection for your Gaming PC/Console.
