I got banned!
Airtel Xstream Fiber (300Mbps)
Router : RPi-4B (OpenWrt), TP-Link A6 (AP)
I know cabling topology of AIRTEL. A fiber from one port of OLT is connected to one ODF, then from ODF 8 different cables go and terminate into 8 FAT boxes. What will the ISP do after their fat boxes are totally saturated? which actually happens in huge apartments.
They can add another cassette ...
How? Fiber is already splitted into 16. How will they split it more?
i dont think thats possible. One Main fiber can be splitted into 16 according to GPON convention.
one main fiber can handle way more connections. So no need to worry

6 connections in my fat box and im facing slow speeds, if they add more than 20 on the same fiber line then I will be doomed.
If all users are downloading at same time then you will get slow speed no matter what. This is rare case
