Can I get a second ONT?

Message 1 of 9

I currenlty have FIOS 20/20  internet but am thinking about getting a triple play bundle which includes 20/5. When I called Vzn they said I could not get 20/20 as part of buncle even If I was willing to pay for it.

 

So the question now is I could keep my 20/20 and get them to install another ONT that would be used for triple play bundle?

thanksl

I"m sure you could get another ont installed with the bundle...I'm just wondering if you asked them if you can get the service unbundled so you could keep your 20/20 service.  I can't imagine why you would want to pay for internet service twice.

actually, I have not seen multiple ONT's at the same address.  Is there an apartment number?

I"ve seen it on business installations with Multiple lines, where the Ont can't accomodate all their telephone numbers.

 There isn't any reason why you should need a second ONT.  I just got FiOS installed last week and got their Triple Freedom package.  I only got the 20/5 but could have gotten the 20/20 if I wanted it.  I have friends who have the Triple Freedom with the 20/20 so I know it is possible, at least here on Long Island.

Just curious, but what do you actually need the 20upload speed for?

I don't think there is a technical reason that you can't get what you want with one ONT.

 

This sounds more like a commercial/pricing issue of what is actually included in the bundle.

the question is:  "So the question now is I could keep my 20/20 and get them to install another ONT that would be used for triple play bundle?"   

 

The first issue is that triple play = voice, data and internet,  so IF you accomplished this, you would then have two separate internet accounts into your same house.  -paying two bills, IF you could get them to do this.

 

second issue = qualifying for a second ONT.   In residentail accounts you cannot 'just get a second ont'    the residential building address may qualify for multiple ONT's but that may be an issue for you.

I wanted Triple Freedom too with 20/20 FiOS Internet and FiOS Extreme HD TV service and was told the same thing.  I just had them change my speed to 20/5.  I can't really see any appreciable difference.

 

I would think Verizon could just run another line from the ONT box so they'd be no need for a second ONT box.  Just me guess, I'm not a tech.
