      Third Party Router with Sky Ultrafast Fibre

      Hi,

      I currently have Sky Fibre Pro using a Billion 8900AX Router which supports Option 61 to authenticate with Sky.

      My question is, if I upgrade to Sky Ultrafast Fibre will I need to change my router?

      I was about to push go on the order then the "Sky Expert" told me I'd get a new Sky Router which immediately rang alarm bells as I have specific services running on my Billion Router (VPN Access, Virtual Servers, Port Forwarding etc) which I can image won't be available on the one supplied by Sky.

      Any help would be really appreciated

      Cheers
      Jon

      It would be useful if anyone can confirm what is provisioned in the property by BT Openreach (who I assume provide the FTTP)... Do you get an ONT or does the new Sky Router/Hub have this integrated?

      Thanks for any help.

      Typically you would already have the Openreach ONT inside your house if you have FTTP. Then Sky provides you with a router that simply connects to the ONT box.
