Hi there... A friend of mine that lives nearby is looking to get AT&T Fiber installed in the coming weeks, but we have a question.
While looking online at the new router/gateway that AT&T is using (BGW320), we noticed that it has a port for connecting the fiber directly to it, as you can see in the picture below.
Is this how new installations are done nowadays? I know that when they installed my fiber 4 years go, they put a box outside that, basically, converted the fiber (optical) signal to an electric one and then ran a CAT6 cable to the gateway inside the house. This was kind of a pain because I needed to supply power to that box outside in addition to the gateway inside.
Has anyone had their AT&T fiber installed recently? If so, was it installed like the picture above where the fiber comes directly into the home and to the gateway?
Any help would be great since he's looking to prepare the house for the install, and knowing this would help tremendously.
