When you’ve got ultra-fast fibre internet at home, you don’t really notice what else you can do to improve your connection. It’s all you need to have anyway – a stable internet connection. Since this broadband type uses fibre optics instead of copper wires, it’s undeniably faster than its predecessors. You could encounter a few hiccups here and there, but nothing big enough to cause you massive problems. 

If you’ve gone from copper connection to fibre just recently, congratulations! Your internet provider should tell you anything you need to know to get you started. If you’re still on the queue for installation, however, you may want to know how you will be connected to fibre. Read more about them here.

1. Getting access from the external box

Your broadband provider will install the external termination point outside of your property. This is where your technician can gain access to the fibre network to deliver at your house. 

2. Installing optical networks

The next step is the installation of an optical network terminator inside your home. Once laid out, this reaches out for fibre signals and data from the fibre optic cable to deliver within the premises. 

3. Connecting cables to your modem

It will then connect to your modem for internet access. Other companies offer router which is supposed to perform better than having them individually. 

4. Checking fibre connectivity at home

A technician will test fibre broadband connection to ensure that you’ve successfully hooked up and ready to be used. If you need to remove or replace cables and power sockets, you may need to consult your broadband provider for a custom-installation. Do note that it may take longer than usual as these requests may not be included in their installation services

5. Finishing external installation

Once they finish all the steps inside your home, the technicians will return outside to install fibre connection from the street to your house. You can monitor how it’s placed in case technical difficulties arise. If you can’t do it yourself, make sure that the technician can contact you for any changes that may come up as they install. 

6. Activating your fibre broadband

Before you can finally enjoy your fibre optic, your broadband provider needs to retest for connectivity inside your home. To fully activate your plan, you may need to wait for up to hours, but you don’t have to worry as you can get connected automatically once the setup is doneSince most Kiwis use the internet to accomplish their daily tasks, it’s now deemed a necessity rather than an optional utility. Because of this, most broadband providers don’t charge for installing fibre broadband in most locations. If there are any, they keep it at a bare minimum. If you want a free standard installation in your household, look into the best deals using our comparison tool that provides an accurate list of fibre deals tailored to your needs.
