The #ont connects to the #termination point (#tp) with an optical fibre cable, and connects to your router via an LAN / ethernet cable. It is basically a modem, translating signals from the fibre optic line from your TP into electronic signals that your router can read.
If you’re experiencing connection issues (e.g. lack of internet access or slow speeds), an key troubleshooting step is to try connecting your computer directly to the ONT to see if the problem goes away.
