I posted a question ealier about using a 3rd party router with TT, FTTP. I note for the FTTC connection you have a help link to use 3rd party routers for setup (which is great) is there anyway you can update it and add a bit for FTTP connections using a 3rd Party router

The ONT is Openreach property, same as the master socket.  As such you will not have access to its settings.  As far as the third-party router goes, the ONT just connects to its EWAN port.

 

Just note that despite the “gigabit interface” a lot of current generation third-party routers have firewall throughput limited to 300 to 450Mb/s.  This will limit speed if the fibre package speed is 500 or 900 etc.

There aren't any. Those ADSL/VDSL settings are for combined modem/routers. There is no such alternative for a FTTP ONT.
