ONT installation in an apartment

Message 1 of 1

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.
