The splitting is done by the ONT, it has both LAN and phone ports. The one below is an example of a 4 LAN and 2 phone port ONT like mine above. Even the Binatone router airtel gave has the same setup as well.

Thanks Karan. Now I need to wait for the connection to be installed actually. Very much excited. Hope I wont regret this decision of choosing Airtel. In the past I have never seen the connection speed go beyond 8 Mbps. Its 100 Mpbs which excites me.

I don't do much torrents. I remember getting around 10-11 MBps when downloading ubuntu image so that's pretty good. With 100mbps, speed will usually depend on the seeds.

When are they going to offer FTTH in North Delhi?

Their V-Fiber is epic fail.

@Adidam if you aren't happy with Airtel v-fiber, you can move to other providers. If there are no other providers, then that is the reason for Airtel to not upgrade the connection. Companies mostly work in reactionary mode and respond to competition. If there is no competition, they will simply try to milk customers who have no other option.

I agree with bb127. In fact I shd consider myself lucky that Airtel has a fully fiber connection in my area. In fact even in major places around Chennai they dont have it seems. It’s only limited to few areas as of now n other big Multi Storey apartments like Hiranandhani n Amarprakash since they provide full provision during the construction itself as tie up.

I was somehow not satisfied with other Fibernet providers n also I am still paying for BSNL landline separately. So Airtel Fiber fits perfectly into my kitty from all perspectives.

I am using Hathway too. Problem with Hathway is that their is a lot of issues with them related to infra. (Loads of Rubberbanding while ganing).
