Few Fibre Op Install Questions
Hey all, I'm upgrading my internet and phone to FibreOp tomorrow. I install Bell TV (satellite) for a living, but don't deal with the phone and internet at all, so I just have a few questions regarding the install to make sure I can make it as easy for the guys showing up tomorrow as possible, and there won't be any surprises for me when they show up.
My basement is mostly unfinished so I've run all my own coax and cat5 through the house. The original phone and cable feeds came into the furnace room and were distributed from there. I've since run a single coax and cat5 from there to under the basement stairs (the "media closet") where all I've run 2 coax and 2 cat5 (1 for phone, 1 for internet) for each room. Will the single cat5 from the furnace room to the media closet be enough or should I run another?
I've been in plenty of houses that have had FibreOp, but didn't really pay much attention to how everything was hooked up because I was there to hook up satellite, so it didn't really concern me. I just want to make sure that I understand what equipment they're going to be putting in. Is it just the main unit that the fibre is connected to, and then the modem?
I guess those are my only questions right now, but I'm in the process of cleaning up all the cables down there right now, so as the day progresses I'm sure I'll have another question or two. Thanks guys.
