Re: Cancelling Fibe after a month to get a clean line for free?

My assumption was that they use something like CAT6e nonstop from Demarc to modem jack.

The 50-1200m between your demarc and the DSLAM is Cat3 or equivalent, there is no point in using Cat6e or even plain Cat5 for the last 5-10m.

Except that last 5-10m is where you will run into the most problems with nearby electrical that cat. 3 may not overcome.

The vast majority of the loop to your home is shielded, bonded and grounded and your ISW is not.

The Diagnostic charge is $89.00 plus tax and they stop work at the demarc.

The inside wire repair charge is $99.00 plus tax and up to repair inside wire.

I have seen charges in the hundreds of dollars the highest being around $350.00.
