Is there an option for an ONT mounted outside? There's absolutely no way to run fiber in my house but I have CAT5e that's available outside. It was original used for POTS which we no longer have.

Outdoor ONTs were stopped over a year ago, seriously doubt any inventory exists to fulfill a special request.
Is it possible to drill a hole inside next to your cat5e wiring and install ONT inside wall bringing the cat5 wiring inside as well?

My ONT was installed outside about 3 months ago. Was a bit miffed when the technician spliced the power line to run outside, but seems to be working OK so far.

So, yes, the cat5e comes out on the outside wall of my garage. Just pull it
inside, run the fiber through the wall, and mount the ONT and power supply
in the garage. Problem solved.
Could you use the existing CAT5 to pull the fiber to your wiring closet? I really like having the ONT in my wiring closet for diagnostic purposes and in case I need to power cycle it.
