The orange operator already offers this Orange’s new 5 Gbps fiber and so you can hire her.
Extras about Orange 1 Gbps fiber
Orange has decided to get off the 10 Gbps donkey and offer them only as an extra for those who really want them. Now opt for a more usable XGS-PON speed, 5 Gbps as an intermediate amount between 1 Gbps and those 10 Gbps maximums.
When managing a contract we can see how the fiber optic rate is 1 Gbps by default. With this last change, uploading the speed to 5 Gbps will have an extra cost of 5 euros monthly bill, while the 10 Gbps will mean an additional payment of 10 euros per month on the price of the rate in question. If you try with a rate of 500 Mb speed, the extra price will be 15 euros per month for 5 Gbps or 20 euros per month for 10 Gbps.
In these extras, in addition to the speed increase, you will also have the installation of your new WiFi 6E Livebox Infinity router, so you win twice.
10 Gbps is not that interesting
It is quite easy to see why Orange has decided to take a step back and offer intermediate speeds and not burden customers’ bills with unnecessary expenses. The evolution of FTTH fiber to XGS-PON and its 10 Gbps has been to date more an advertising claim of the operators that offer it than a product with real utility For the users.
First of all, because you’re not really going to have 10 Gbps. You will really have (with the right conditions) 8 Gbps, which will be the maximum usable speed by your devices and the rest ensures connectivity between equipment through the use of FEC (Forward Error Correction).
Also, requires extra equipment that the average user probably won’t have and meet a series of requirements: have a category 6A RJ45 cable connection and a 10 Gbps network card or a 10 Gbps Thunderbolt 3 adapter. This added to the special router provided by the operator.
