Fiber Optic Service Drop - Understanding the Basics

A fiber optic service drop refers to the final leg of the fiber optic cable network that connects your home or business to the larger, main fiber network. It’s essentially the physical line that carries all those high-speed internet data signals straight into your house.

This fiber optic service drop includes a small box (often called an Optical Network Terminal or ONT) installed on your house’s side. This box receives the fiber optic connection and converts the data signals into a form your home devices can use. Don’t worry, the box is compact, discreet, and comparable to a standard telephone service box in size.

What is Fiber Internet?

Fiber optic internet uses thin strands of glass to transmit information as pulses of light. This technology allows for faster speeds and a more reliable connection than traditional copper-based internet services.

Superior Internet Speed and Capacity

Fiber optic technology can deliver much higher speeds and handle more data than traditional copper-based lines. This means faster downloads, seamless streaming, and smoother video calls - even with multiple devices connected.

Reliable Connection

Fiber optic cables are less susceptible to weather conditions, electrical interference, and signal degradation over long distances. This means a more reliable internet connection, so your Netflix binge or important Zoom meeting won't be interrupted.

Future-Proofing Your Home

As our world becomes more digital, the demand for high-speed, high-capacity internet is only going to increase. Installing a fiber optic service drop now ensures your home is ready to handle these future demands.

Increase Property Value

A fiber optic service drop can potentially increase the value of your property. As high-speed internet becomes more important, homes with a fiber optic connection are becoming increasingly desirable.


Most frequent questions and answers

While both can deliver high-speed internet, fiber optic technology offers several advantages over cable. These include higher speeds, better reliability, and greater capacity to handle multiple devices. Also, fiber is more future-proof as it can accommodate the increasing internet demands of new technology.

A fiber optic service drop refers to the line that connects your home to the main fiber network. It includes a small box installed on the side of your house that receives the fiber optic connection.

Even if you don’t want to switch to our service now, agreeing to a service drop installation will make your home fiber-ready for the future. This could potentially increase your property value. Also, we’re currently offering this installation for free—a process that could cost up to $1000 in the future.

We aim to minimize disruption during the construction process. Any digging required will mostly take place within the public right-of-way, and if any disturbances occur on your property, our team will restore it to its original condition as closely as possible.

After the service drop installation, you’re all set for future fiber optic service. When we’re ready to launch, we’ll notify you, and if you decide to switch to our service, we’ll schedule a setup appointment at your convenience.

To utilize fiber optic internet, you’ll need a fiber-compatible router. If you decide to switch to our service, we’ll provide all the necessary equipment and set everything up for you.

While prices can vary, our goal at S&T is to offer competitive rates for superior service. We’ll provide detailed pricing information as we get closer to launching the service.
