At some point we will be getting fibre, and I want to know about where to bring the fibre into the house. I know ZERO about all this stuff.
Currently the copper cables enter the house downstairs and go into a cupboard under the stairs. From there wires must branch off to the various phone jacks. Our modem is plugged into a phone jack upstairs in the open plan kitchen lounge. We no longer have a land line, and don't want one. Almost all living and internet usage is upstairs, downstairs is for laundry and guest bedrooms etc.
When a scope was being done next door I asked the tech where they would bring fibre in to our place, and he said to the same place as it currently is.
Q: does fibre connect up to the existing phone jacks and our modem will simply plug into a jack upstairs like before? Or does the modem connect to the fibre where it enters the house?
If it is the later then having it enter in a cupboard downstairs would seem like a bad idea.
Help appreciated (and sorry for the dumb question)
