Paolo: The router completely stops working. No phone, internet, nor TV. Even wireless stops transmitting.

This includes DSL and telephone lines. If you want a slower speed, they will throttle it through the fiber connection.
I've even tried going to Primus which still provides traditional landlines, and they came back with a reply that they cannot do it either, likely because of that same policy.
Seems like Bell's grand plan to get rid of copper, hook everyone with FTTH and cut out all of the third party providers.
Guess I was the first sucker.. Wish I knew this before trying it.
