Dear Daniel, and all,
Yes, I confirm if you order a /30, /29, /28, etc to VTX, the first IP of the subnet is
assigned to the CPE with the right mask associated.

I confirm, this setup works on most of the CPE. For exemple with a /30 you have one IP for
your LAN gateway and one usable. That's normal, it's a /30. :)
Have a nice day,

In this setup, the PPP endpoint address of the CPE router is
the same as it's LAN address, and the customer still gets his
/30 network to use as expected, i.e. there's an address left
for, say, a server.
In the vtx case (if correct), there is nothing of the /30
left to the customer to use, except the WAN address assigned
via PPPoX. Granted, this does not sound very sane, since the
customer pays for a /30 which he does not get.
Maybe the vtx engineers just had bad luck explaining the
above to the customer.

doing the same?
