What should I do prior to my installation?

Category:Fios Installation

After you have set-up an appointment date that suits your schedule, you should do the following:

  • Provide easy access to your computer.
  • Provide an unused 120-volt receptacle inside the home as close to ONT/NID as possible for the BBU (What is a BBU? ).
    (Not having a receptacle *may* result in rescheduling the install until one has been provided.)

  • Have an idea of where you want the ONT (What is the ONT? ).
    The ONT will probably replace or be installed adjacent to the existing NID (What is a NID? ); requesting a different location may result in delays.

  • Make room for the BBU
  • Be nice to the technician. (beer helps!) 

    Keep in mind: The FiOS installation takes just about four (or more) hours to complete.
