Verizon is moving everyone's phone service in my area from copper to fiber and I have an appointment for the installation coming up. FWIW I'm sticking with Freedom Essentials for now,not getting FIOs. I have a one bedroom apartment and I'm wondering where the ONT gets installed. Is it put in a closet or is that impossible since it has to be plugged in? Also how big is it? I have requested the one that uses the D cell battery backup. Finally, does it use a lot of electricity? I ask because the wiring in my building is such that using a blow dryer while running the dishwasher causes the circuit breaker to trip.
