Re: FIOS box in my garage? HELP!!!

Verizon FiOS would only be available if Verizon Core (Ma Bell) was the RBOC for the town. If Verizon is not the RBOC, then the power converter & backup battery unit came from some other location. In places where Verizon installed FiOS, but, subsequently exited, the new provider would continue providing the service under a different name.

Verizon Core is trying to get away from wireline communications. The company has been installing 5G OTA equipment in test markets as a way to deliver fiber based services without having to hang fiber drops or trench the ground to lay conduit along property lines.
