Re: FIOS Install Questions 1) Is your intent to move all the current lines to fiber? Do you plan to keep the split between residential and business accounts? If you're in a GPON area, VZ can install an Alcatel O-821G-D ONT or Motorola 1500-GT that supports 8 POTS lines.

Not sure if VZ can split the billing for POTS lines on the same ONT between business and residential. If they can, they only one fiber run is needed. If VZ requires separate ONTs for business and residential lines, then 2 fiber drops would be required.
BTW, your arithmetic doesn't add up. You list 6 lines, but say 4-5 are in use.
4) The coax would provide TV signal to the 2nd floor. The tenant would not be able to have a separate WAN connection for his router over the same coax. You could provide a LAN connection over the coax however.

Providing TV and/or internet service to tenant is a violation of VZ's residential Terms of Service (TOS).
5) Correct. DV has fewer taxes.
