I'm considering upgrading from Verizon DSL to FiOS (tired of paying for throughput I'm not getting). On the Verizon FiOS sign-up page, the "installation" steps (http://www22.verizon.com/Residential/FiOSInternet/Installation/Installation.htm) say "the ONT will be connected to the existing coaxial cabling in your home and the signal will be tested.
- why would I want new fiber optic cable connected to old coax cabling that may be in my house?
- what if I'm using the coax in my house for satellite TV?
- what if I don't have coax cabling already in my house -- will Verizon install proper ethernet (Cat5e?) cabling as part of the installation?
Solved! Go to Solution.
That's my plan -- just FiOS internet service. We have Dish for TV and Verizon local phone service. Will the FT supply and run the cable inside the house, or do they just install the jack at the entry point and the rest is up to me?
