They had to switch out my ONT and move me over to the GPON network. Ever since then the blockiness in dark scenes has gone away. I still have issues with certain channels (like ABC) stuttering every few seconds. And the walking dead on AMC is unwatchable as during panning shots any details in faces seem to flicker and pixelate. Prior to the speed upgrade I had a FIOS tech out on multiple occasions to try to resolve. We swapped out cable boxes, replaced splitters, swapped the ONT, and checked all wiring. Nothing resolved it until I switched over to the GPON network. The other issue I have noticed on the later firmwares is that turning up judder reduction too high causes fast moving objects to pixelate, especially on certain channels.
How do I tell if Im on GPON or not?
I looked in my basement, my ONT is model I-211M-K, my router is a new black quantum one, it says the ONT was installed in my basement in 2014, I just got the new router about 6 months ago.
I have a 50mps/50mps up/down plan from Verizon.
Do you think higher internet speeds would help? I could go 75/75 for another $5 a month...
Is it safe to assume I'm on GPON already?
I am enticed since you say switching over to GPON really helped your picture quality, I want to make sure I am on GPON as well, lol.
