Dear fellow community members,
Beginning on Feb 8, 2022, VZ offers symmetrical multigigabit Fios subscription up to 2Gbps (typ. 2048, low 1500, high 2300Mbps) in select areas of the New York City. To learn more, please visit https://www.verizon.com/home/2-gigabit-internet/
The initial rollout is trial in nature and does not include voice and TV services. Voice and TV services will be included in a later rollout.
The 2G subscription requires a new NG-PON2 ONT. Current GPON ONTs, such as Nokia 211, are not able to deliver speeds higher than gigabit. The new NG-PON2 ONT is provided by Calix with the model number 812NG-V.

WNC Verizon Router
[Older message, 1/29/22]
VZ has released the newest 10G-capable router CR1000A this past Monday (1/24/22). The new router is for both 5G and Fios residential use. A support page has been created on the 5G side, which can be found at https://www.verizon.com/support/verizon-router-cr1000a/ , and the router is also added to the existing Fios router supporting page, which can be found at https://www.verizon.com/support/residential/internet/equipment/routers .
The user manual can be found on both Fios and 5G support pages, at https://scache.vzw.com/dam/support/pdf/user_guide/cr1000a-verizon-router-user-guide.pdf
New Features in Comparison to G3100
|WiFi||+/- replacement of one 5GHz WiFi 6 band with 6GHz WiFi 6E||Has 2: 4 x 4 MU-MIMO 5GHz WIFI 6|
|MoCA||- Elimination of WAN MoCA 2.5 controller||Has both WAN and LAN MoCA 2.5 controllers|
|SIP ALG||+ addition of SIP ALG config in Firewall section||None|
|Ethernet||10GbE WAN + LAN; 2x 2.5GbE LAN. 10GbE capable of 5/2.5/1G/100M, 2.5GbE capable of 1G/100/10M.||1: GbE WAN; 4: GbE LAN|
|Extenders||+ Verizon 5G WiFi Extender Mini , E3200 can also be used||E3200 Fios Extender|
The admin interface of CR1000A is very similar to that of G3100.
Currently, CR1000A is not widely available and is not in stock on the corporate website. New 2G Fios Internet subscribers will likely have the ability to purchase CR1000A along with the Internet plan at https://www.verizon.com/inhome/qualification , once 2G speed is available in your Central Office.
I checked the pdf.
All three ports will support 2.5G. One of the ports extends up to 10G. Users who subscribe to 2.5 can utilize all three ports. Subscribers to 10G service will have one port that can provide that speed. If more than one 10G connection is needed, there are 10G switches out there, but they are expensive.
Today is the day! One thing that hasn't been revealed is what Verizon is going to use for an ONT. Hoping pictures can be posted once the hardware starts to find its way into homes. 🙂
