New AT&T Fiber Install/Billing Questions
Just signed up for the introductory 12-month offer to AT&T Fiber. A couple of quick questions.
There is no way to Ethernet wire directly from the ONT Terminal to my own third-party router (ASUS RT-AC68U), as the ONT Terminal needs to communicate with an AT&T Device (like the Arris BGW210-700) to manage the IP lease from the network? I know about the IP Passthough mode for the BGW210-700, but there is no way to avoid having to wire in BGW210-700 as that intermediary?
I actually bought my own Arris BGW210-700, in preparation for the install (tech has to complete the ONT Terminal in my apartment) but I was told that there is no way to waive the $10 equipment fee, even though I am providing my own device? Or is that only during the 12-month introductory offer?
