WHEN OUR TECH ARRIVES…
All services are provided over a strand of fiber optic cable installed to your specific address.
When we install your service, we will install a fiber-optic cable to your address. We will bring this strand of fiber into your home and will connect it to a device we call an ONT. This ONT will convert the optical signal from the fiber to an electrical signal that your telephone, computers or television will be able to communicate with. This ONT must be connected to an electrical source to operate. In event of a power failure, this device will turn off but should come on automatically when power is restored.
On the ONT are several connections that are used for the various services we provide. When our technician connects your service, he will use specific connections on the back of the ONT for each type of service you have subscribed to. Please do not change the connections once they are installed by the technician. Changing or disconnecting any connection on the ONT will result in a loss of service.
If you requested telephone service, our technician will connect from the ONT to the existing telephone wiring in your home and all your current telephone devices should continue to function in the same manner as they did in the past.
The ONT also serves as the end point or “demarcation point” for Internet service.
The ONT is not a router however, a router is always required for Internet service. You may use your own router or you may choose to lease a router from ValuNet FIBER. There are many different makes and models of routers. Generally, most routers will function with ValuNet FIBER service however, we have found that older routers or routers designed for DSL type service will not provide the full bandwidth and speed available with ValuNet.
When installing your service, our technician will ask you for your router and will assist you in connecting it to the ONT and the ValuNet network. The technician will test the router with you to determine that it is compatible and is able to handle the speed and bandwidth of the ValuNet FIBER network. If it is found to be incompatible, you may purchase or lease a router from ValuNet or, you may purchase a router from a local retail source or online as you desire.
If you choose to lease a router from us, ValuNet FIBER will provide management and support of the router.
ValuNet FIBER will provide basic assistance in helping you to set up the router you provided or purchased however, as the owner you are responsible for proper operation and programming of the router. You should be aware that there are many types and brands of routers and many types of wireless connectivity. The next two pages will provide additional information on selecting the proper router.
Our HDTV service does not use the old cable TV cable that is probably in your home. Instead, our HDTV utilizes Ethernet cable and wireless devices to deliver service to each TV location. If you purchased our HDTV service, our technician will survey your home with you to determine the best wiring solution for each location.
