Connecting Gigabit Service to Home
I am scheduled to have Uverse service with Gigabit internet, U450 and phone service.
There is fiber at the curb and my home has an demarcation entry that penetrates an exterior wall with coax and a Cat 5e cable and runs in the walls to a closet in the master bedroom on the opposite corner of the house that has a cabinet. The cabinet currently houses the cable modem and termination for the demarcation.
There is a small box within 4 feet of the exetrior penetration of the coax and Cat 5e that has a 120VAC source.
1) How will they provide signal to the gateway?
2) If they use the existing coax or Cat 5e to the Gateway will I get the gigabit speed I'm paying for?
2) Will they be able to mount the fiber converter to the exterior of the house near the area where the coax/Cat 5e penetrates the exterior wall?
