Hi, I'm a Lead Field Technician with Sonic.Yes we do use the snap-in, keystone format fiber-optic jacks. I'm looking at your pics now and I'm confident we'll be able to swap out the copper keystone from the DSL for a fiber one, definitely an issue that can easily be resolved by any installer. We'll either simply re-use your wall plate or replace it with one that will work.
Thanks! That’s what I was hoping to hear.
Hopefully this wall plate is situated in the house in a way that our installer can run one of our secondary fiber cables to it from the transition box where the primary drop cable coming in from the street is terminated.
Should be doable. The DSL cable will no longer be needed, so I’d like to remove it and replace it with the secondary fiber cable. The DSL cable is only loosely stapled in place and it can definitely be pulled out—and maybe used to pull the fiber into place if we do it right.
This is a determination made once the installer is on site, so unfortunately I can't guarantee that we can run the fiber to this jack, however once on site the installer will do his or her best to accommodate the plan.
Understood. The last part of the run might be a little tricky, since it goes through a flexible, corrugated conduit (AKA Smurf tube), up to the box, but I’ve fished both cables (Ethernet and DSL) into place before, and I’m guessing that the fiber cable will be easier than the DSL cable was. I’ll need to go over all of this with the installer, but I don’t see any technical show-stoppers.
I hope this answers your question, thank you for choosing Sonic.
Yes it does, and thanks again for your helpful information and advice.
