Can anyone confirm that the broadband router I have will also work with a new fibre package I am getting when I move home? A customer service rep said it would which is really great but I've not heard of a router being able to do both - does the telephone line go in and just work? I figured an engineer would have to come and install a new line dedicated to faster internet but the rep advised that the existing line will plug in just like my broadband one and the router is compatible with both standards.

i myself am in a fibre active area and yes it still puzzles me how ADSL is considered Fibre since BT and Virgin Fibre are usually connected with a coaxel cable and not a standard ADSL cable to guarantee Fibre speeds
@DanielHould ADSL is not “considered Fibre”. ADSL is entirely over copper wire from exchange to home. VDSL/VDSL2 is “considered Fibre” due to being fibre from exchange to street cabinet, but still over copper wire from the street cabinet to home. As far as I know, it’s mainly only Virgin Media who run over co-ax (BT not at all). Blame OFCOM for terminology...
