To add to Brent's note, since the pricing for secondary service is
different, there's a process to follow when the primary service goes
away and a secondary service needs to be promoted to primary. That
process is, uh, less seamless than it could be, leaving the secondary
provider with the possibility of having the service pulled from under
them if they fail to react.
Even if it is handled cleanly, the cost price changes, which means that
the ISP either has to go back to the customer with a price change, wear
the increase in price, or have priced the service in as if it was a
primary service in the first place, and been pocketing the difference.
When you're trying to prevent surprises, keep configurations simple, and
unnecessary customer interactions to a minimum, that could well be a
situation ISPs would want to just avoid despite the cost advantage of
using secondary services.

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.

*Subject: *[nznog] Multiple connections to UFB in server room
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)?
