the image in the first pic should be called your slack storage, the ONT (not to be confused with ONTario the province) is located in your basement near the Hydro Panel typically)

»www.metronetinc.com/internet/default.

The above website does not show the speed offering, 30/10, you mention. Did I go to the wrong website? Perhaps the FTTH deployment is in only part of Franklin or the 46131 zip-code area?

I find it odd when FTTH deployments do not have simple symmetrical speed offerings. I assume many use a GPON setup, where the raw download is twice the raw upload. I figure 50% of the download is used for video/television programming. The remaining symmetrical speed contains the internet and VOIP in my rough way of thinking.

Anyway, I wish you good surfing through the miracle of FTTH.

Correct, that is the ONT. What would be inside (garage, basement,etc) is the power supply for the ONT.

A slack storage box is used on the backside of an ONT when the provider uses pre connectorized fiber drops (like VZ and Frontier FiOS).

Your provider splices each and every drop directly to the ONT.

Very nice. Has Comcast or the telco done anything to counter them, such as promotions?

It's nice to see then offering decent upload. All the FTTH providers in this area guard upload like it is gold.
