Case Study in The Home
Have you seen construction work going on in your street and are wondering what it’s all about? You can call your retailer to find out whether UFB is available, or your local fibre company will invite you to have a line put in when they go past your house, and you can take up a retail service when you’re ready. The service line or drop runs from your property boundary into the house. It connects to a box inside called an optical network termination (ONT) point.

The ONT can be put in any area of the house, near a power point and ideally where the computer or modem is going to be placed. The installation is free at wholesale, although some retailers might choose to charge for it.
