What is an ONT?Updated a year ago

If you've come across the term ONT in various help articles and are unsure about its meaning. Let us explain.

Fibre works by shining light at super fast speeds down a thin glass strand. To convert the light to a signal your router can understand, you need an Optical Network Terminal (ONT).

It's usually a small white (in some cases black) plastic box located on a wall or in a network cabinet in your house.
