With fiber internet, an Optical Network Terminal (ONT) is roughly equivalent to a modem. This device transfers your internet signal from the optical domain to the electrical domain. At installation, we will place an ONT inside the home or business. If you have a City Managed WiFi plan, the ONT will also provide an integrated WiFi router. If you do not have a City Managed WiFi plan, we will place a basic ONT in the site which can be connected to your router via an ethernet cable. There is no fee for the ONT device.
