About to be Switched to Fiber Optic
« on: December 13, 2021, 10:14:46 AM »
I have a customer who is about to be switched to fiber optic from copper/dsl. Is the current line within their house compatible with the fiber optic line they are installing?

They will install an ONT (Optical Network Terminal) that takes the fiber and provides POTS lines as well as ethernet. So yes, you should be able to just unplug the ethernet cable from the DSL modem and plug it into the ONT RJ-45 port. Any phone lines plug into or connect to the ONT also.
