Providing fast speeds and a reliable connection, TWN Fiber Internet delivers an exceptional internet experience that can support all your digital activities.
Getting connected requires minimal equipment. Nothing bulky. Nothing overcomplicated. Only a few key items are necessary to bring high-speed fiber internet to your home.
Here’s what you can expect:
Technically, your fiber line is a fiber-optic cable that serves as your direct connection to the larger fiber network. Fiber-optic cables are made of hundreds of small strands of glass core fibers. Light signals travel along these fibers to transmit large amounts of data at quick speeds.
Your fiber line will run from the street to your home and will be buried underground. You will have the opportunity to review the path of your fiber line and make adjustments before it is buried.
After your fiber line is buried, a specialized crew will place a small box, called a Network Interface Device or NID, on the outside of your home.
This small box is typically mounted near your electrical meter and holds the fiber connection. The NID links the fiber-optic cables provided by TWN to your home’s internal wiring, allowing your devices to access the internet seamlessly.
Additionally, the NID provides protection for fiber-optic connectors and splices from outside elements.
Once your NID has been placed outside, a technician will run a fiber cable inside your house and connect it to another small box located near your Wi-Fi router known as the Optical Network Terminal, or ONT.
The ONT is an integral part of the fiber system because it converts incoming high-speed optical signals into electrical signals that your internet, TV, and telephone can comprehend.
The ONT also sends and receives infrared light pulses to TWN’s server to transmit data.
The last piece of equipment needed is a Wi-Fi router, which TWN will provide.
A router is a device that shares a single internet connection with multiple wired devices. It serves as a hub and firewall, sending information from the internet to computers, phones, and tablets. It also has a port dedicated to communicating with your ONT.
When a technician connects your ONT to your router, you officially have TWN Fiber Internet!
