It depends a lot on which products an RSP has “on-boarded” for with Chorus.
Subsequent services on the same ONT are called “Secondary Services” they have a 
different pricing construct, and sometimes, different features.
You can check out the secondary service options in the NGA technical guide here:

Happy to help describe this further, give me a shout off-list.

Depends on combination on RSP policy.  Chorus say that secondary services are 
limited, ie if primary service on ONT is 100/100M then secondary service will 
be 100/50M (Not sure if this is a scaled rule or a hard rule).
Some RSPs don’t accept this and will chose to install second ONT to get primary 
service specs.

Hi guys.  A shared server room has an active UFB service for another business 
on the floor.  We want UFB service to our office too.

Is an additional ONT install needed (as I'm being told by <ISP>)? Or, can 
Chorus just enable another port on the existing ONT and have and then run a 
network cable out to both routers from one ONT? Is the ONT capable of multiple 
PPPOE sessions to the offsite hardware?
Or is this just creating a problem that doesn't need to exist (- ie say yes to 
the second ONT install)?

Many thanks,
Paul Adshead.
