We install an Optical Network Terminal (ONT), which is about the size of the cable or DSL modem you have today. We mount this on your wall to minimize potential damage to the fiber. The ONT needs to be placed within 6' of a power outlet, and should also be next to your router. Typically this will be installed in the same area as your current Internet Service equipment is located. We recommend that the ONT be installed on the 1st floor (office or living room) unless your current router is already installed in your basement.
