What is the benefit of Fiber connection when you need to use a fiber to ethernet converter device (Gepon) for just saving few bucks. Why dont you buy a Fiber compatible modem cum router or a broadband connection if you want to save 2999/-
Except Jio hardly any other service provider providing good quality fiber modem. Converter doesn't slowdown the internet. It just provides a port to connect into the cable net routers. 90% of cable internet/fiber net users use RJ45 routers. You may not be aware of that but see amazon/flipkart reviews to find they are fine to use.
Any regular cable internet (RJ45 Input) router should work. They will use a fiber to ethernet converter device called Gepon. BSNL has been providing internet through LCOs (local cable operators) these days. They maintain the last mile connection.
They mention this works on RJ45 port in the description for fiber connections. Couple of reviews also said BSNL FTTH works on it on LAN1/WAN. And it even supports IPTV on LAN4.
I am just not completely sure. I don't want to waste money if this is compatible.
