I was called to look at a friend's neighbor residence prior to FiOS install (heh..going in on the 12th). Since I have Fios, I am now the expert...right?
Neighbor has been on Verizon DSL for years. Now getting up to 150Mbps package. Wow, what a shock that will be...now his computer will be slower than the net
So, (he wants me) to ask some FiOS installers based on the following:
-this is a multiple residence home (inlaws suite, extended barn with living, and main home).
-use has multiline phone system (phone rings in inlaws and main home with extensions to rooms but not the barn)
-POE is in garage (conduit from street, then conduit to utility room in home..a good 50-60ft run).
-conduit has broadband coax (1/2"or 5/8" exterior jacket) never used (as though some builder pulled it and left it..think it will ever be used?)
Will Fios installed remove the unused coax for fish for fiber?
Would Fios also put ONT per residence or just one? or one for home and barn? Extra costs? I don't think he realizes what is involved here nor told Fios (Verizon)
I don't think this home owner knows what is involved and thinks, oh, Fios will just do it. And not charge him. Right... I mean, if he rents out the other buildings, they would get separate ONTs for billing, right? (or he has to offer package...which then bugs me, how do they get phone? separate TV...)
Anyone he can call after I drop this on him ?--
