How FiosFiber Optic Service Works
In order to get Fios fiber optic service you need both a wired connection from Verizon into your home as well an active account with them (if not already). You then plug the optical cable – which is about three feet long – into your router or modem so the two devices are connected wirelessly through radio waves.
The other end of the cable plugs directly into any wall outlet for instant installation without requiring you to drill holes in walls or ceilings.
The total installation time should be about half an hour, and once it’s complete you’ll have internet speeds of up to 940 Mbps with no more worries about your Internet connection going down when the power goes out!
