Verizon telephone hookup
The old telephone box and the copper wiring stays, but essentially becomes obsolete once FiOS is up and running.
The battery for the backup. Great for kids and teens.
Hardware The best new Bluetooth headphones worth a look. The most popular home, DIY and special interest networks plus entertainment for the whole family. Installation for Verizon can be pricey for the telecom giant as contractors have to lay a fiber optic conduit directly to the home.
The fiber optic cable is pulled through to the house. Verizon home phone service required.
The FiOS box gets its own power supply. While Verizon's televison service was interesting I was really focused on the Internet connection.
On right, the old telephone box. In my neighborhood, all power and phone lines are buried so laying the line required some digging.
Copper wiring inside the home remains in tact. This is the box that is attached to the house to connect the fiber-optic line telephone hookup Verizon's central office. Once the conduit is buried.

Once the box is connected to the home the connection to Verizon's network is completed across the street. Cable stringing across the street complete. In the meantime, it sits on the sidewalk. The general idea is that Verizon's router is connected to the central office for monitoring. The tech says the battery gives you TV and Internet access for about 20 minutes in a power outage.
Technology we hate with a passion.
