QuoteMy plan was to keep my POTS over fiber for voice and to go with FIOS just for internet.
QuoteWe will extend the fiber optic facilities to your location and our technician will install the Optical Network Terminal (ONT). The placement of this equipment will vary depending on the type of home you live in or the lay out of your business. We should be able to use the existing wiring and you will be able to use your existing telephones.
QuoteThis is not Fios voice service. It is your existing voice service, only provided over fiber instead of copper, at the same price, terms, and conditions. Any devices that rely on your current voice service, such as facsimile, security alarms connected to a central station, or medical monitoring equipment, will continue to work in the same way as they did over copper. For High Speed Internet customers, the product you currently have is not available on fiber, but Verizon can provide you with a Fios Internet product that is significantly faster at a special rate...

I saw Centurylink working on a interface cabinet next to our mobile home park. its a fiber to copper interface... and until the system it totally converted to fiber.... copper will continue to be used... Lord Knows, I have enough of it in my house....
Quote from: mariepr on April 23, 2017, 08:46:27 AMWell, taking all the comments into consideration, this is looking more and more disappointing. Unless I'm willing to give up internet there is no way I'm going to be able to keep telephone service that worked just like it did before. It's being forced to Fios digital voice (according to the complaints I've read) or forced to the cable company's digital voice.
