A different ONT?

Message 1 of 2
(783 Views)

I'm reorganizing my house's ethernet, which means that my ONT (model 612) will get moved. The new location is a bit tight on space.

So, is there a different model ONT that is smaller? Note that I don't need the back-up system (I'll be on a UPS).

That's a BPON ONT.  Upgrade to a faster speed and they'll swap it out for a GPON unit.  It's much smaller.  They've gotten rid of the battery backup, too.

 

Also, I recommend you don't move it with contacting Verizon.  It is literally their property.  If something breaks due to your work, they will charge you a very large amount of money to replace the ONT and/or fiber.

 

Contact Verizon to find out what the options are for your specific location.   I suggest you use chat, @Verizonsupport on Twitter, or https://www.dslreports.com/forum/vzdirect.
