Underground Fiber Terminal identification help

My home was built in 2017 when one lot was subdivided into 7. After the construction was finished, ATT installed Fiber infrastructure buried in my neighbor's front yard. But only one address of the 7 shows Fiber available in ATTs system. After some digging in my neighbor's yard, I found this infrastructure (photo attached). There is conduit that leads to each one of our yards. Is this what we need for Fiber? Any recommendations how we can get ATT to activate our address? I have tried to open address validation tickets but none of the links on this forum work. Thank you!

That is not an ATT fiber terminal… looks closer to coax (cable) 

An ATT fiber terminal in 2017 to support 7 locations would have been Corning Optisheath Multiport of 8 …

see middle item

While the big conduit is the feed into the box and have several smaller conduit going out, I count 6… the item on right appears to be the splice case with left being node (coax).

edit, an optisheath in the ground
