Does U-verse Upgrade to Fiber Require New INSIDE Wiring?

I currently have U-verse with the outside box shown and a 5268AC modem. The white UTP LAN cable shown in the bottom far left connects to my modem. Will upgrading to 300 MB fiber require ANY new inside wiring, or will I be able to continue using the existing LAN cable to connect to the fiber modem?

All new wiring …

The copper drop disconnected with new fiber drop from fiber terminal,

The NID would be replaced with fiber NID, 

The feed from the Fiber NID would be fiber line not cat5e or whatever you have.

The fiber line should be ran to the location for the ONT which is generally an all in one unit p, BGW 320, for both ONT and gateway.
