To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
It would appear all the pro-sumers trying to bypass their Bell hubs flock to this device, and I get why. It works well with Bell's provided GPON ONT module. Don't panic if the link doesn't come up immediately - there must be some negotiation going on with the upstream PON server/switch (don't know the specifics), so it might take up to 30 seconds or more to see a link light. This is not the fault of the TP-Link, and nothing to worry about.
The converter comes with a small "wall wart" adapter that won't pull much power, so it's well-suited for a modest UPS backup. Very happy so far.
I recently switched providers and this works perfectly. The technician installed the sfp module in the vendor provided modem/router. When he left, moments later I removed the sfp module with fibre cable, plugged it into this device, then used the ethernet cable and plugged it into my pfSense firewall. I configured PPPoE and tagged the VLAN on my WAN interface and my internet worked perfectly (and has since). No more vendor modems/routers - what a relief. I can't speak to the longevity of this device but so far so good!
Works just as advertised to bypass the HH3K. If you are not getting Gigabit speeds your router settings are likely the culprit. Make sure you google DSLReports with this TP-Link Media Converter model and your router model to get the right settings. Initially my Asus AC86U was only getting about 400mbps but after installing Merlin firmware and tweaking the settings I got ~900mbps which is pretty much the speed you get with a direct connection to HH3K.
