So apparently Verizon is upgrading people on its Fios optical fiber networks to different passive optical network (PON) standards, from BPON, Broadband Passive Optical Network, to GPON or Gigabit Ethernet passive optical network. GPON can offer faster data speeds.  We were just upgraded -they had called me to schedule an appointment,  and I did see they sent an email about the offer, but after the install was already complete. It involved installing the new Optical Network Terminal (ONT) hardware inside the house and a new circuit board in the box outside the house, plus changing the fiber connection to GPON somewhere up the line. It was at no charge, and they also sent me a new WiFi router (the G1100) at no charge.
