An ONT (Optical Network Terminal) or OFNL Modem, is essentially a device that allows fibre to enter your home and terminate. The modem will send infrared light pulses to your Internet Service Provider, to connect you to the internet. You can connect your modem to a router to distribute a WiFi signal across your home and your telephone to use voice services.
Your modem may already be installed in your home and can be identified by the following features:
- White or black box fixed to the wall
- has at least one internet port
- has a phone line socket
- Branded: ZTEGC (ZTE), ICTR (Icotera) or ALCL (Acatel/Nokia)
