Want to save on ONT monthly rental, can someone please recommend me a good ONT and how can I use it? Do I need to take that in BSNL office for configuration? 1 Telephone port would be great, I have separate WiFi Router. Thanks

@nitinmits Please suggest model and where can I get? LCO told they don't have any ONT and the EchoLite they installed is not for sale. Only option is renting it.

There are 2 category of lazers (class B and Class C) and then there are GPON and EPONs... on passive side and a lot many protocols on Active side. i am not sure where people are getting the same for 1K however the cheapest i am finding on Aliexpress are for 2-3K and they are not known brands for me. search "SFP PON transceivers" and there are so many types of fiber connections that unless some one knows what exact equipment / protocol / laser is at the back end there would be a lot of compatibility challenges.

My LCO has provided me with this ONT, he has been asking for ₹2500 for this, but I have always been telling him from day 1 to install it on my old ONT, but they installed their own, now constantly asking me to pay ₹2500, even got them confirmation from BSNL office.

It has gigabit port, has wifi (which I don't use), and a landline telephone port. You can check if you can get it from somewhere online or offline.

The only downside with this optilink model is only 1 is Gigabit port other is fast ethernet. Also wifi is 2.4 ghz not wifi AC

The wifi in optilink one is not so good in my experience, lot of my devices were unable to obtain IP address and range was also not that good, I just configured my D link 615 router with it using bridge mode and using WiFi on it, just wanted to mention this point before anyone invests on this ONT.
