I need to sign up for fiber internet. My location allows for service from either MEO or NOS fiber. I am deciding between the two services.
Two main questions:
A) Do you recommend using MEO or NOS for fiber internet and why?
B) Are MEO users forced to use the "FiberGateway" router or can they use their own modem and router equipment?
I have heard mixed reviewed about MEO vs NOS. Reading through the forums I am seeing a variety of posts saying MEO fiber services is not consistent/reliable, customer services is not responsive, and there is a limit to what devices/ports can be used. If you were starting out and needed fiber would you select MEO? If yes why, if no why?
The documentation on the MEO website does not seem to clearly indicate whether users MUST use the router/modem equipment from MEO, specifically the "FiberGateway" device. Are users able to connect different modems and routers?
Context from others:
After asking around I have heard mixed things about MEO, most of them have not been good. Any thoughts to help make my decision are appreciated.
