I just did a walk through with a client for a basement refinish. the ONT is in a weird spot that will soon get refinished. He was asking about moving the ONT from a part of the house into the mechanical/equipment room. Fios is Arial in his area and there isnt enough slack to move it the 75ft away.

I was thinking of running a conduit from the demarc location to the equipment closet. This way all fios has todo is pull a 100ft fiber. it will mean a splice at the demarc but im almost positive they can screw on a barrel connector.

Thoughts?

You can do the conduit but Verizon will have to do the Cabling. Make sure to call them and ask what size they need for conduit. Around here they are pretty much premadonnas and require an empty 2 with a mule tape.

You can actually move it yourself. You just need a Fiber jumper (legnth of your choice) with "SCA" ends. plug one end into the barrel that the drop is currently connected to. Then on the ONT end, Just use a regular SC coupler and you will be good to go. Make sure the ends are clean and you will be fine. The coupler shouldn't affect anything.

EDIT: The connector is actually an SC/APC. It is green in color

You need this:

You should be good to go with these. Let me know if i can hemp further.

Play by the rules is my motto. Another companies stuff who has a hell of a lot more capital than I do.

Good luck either way. Personally I would just get Verizon out and run a new feed to the location from the street and skip the splice point.

Pipe to the equipment room. We do it all the time. VZ will pull the fiber all the way in as long as they have a good path, so make it easy for them.
