    My House was wired through out the house and I was curious to know if the new Verizon FiOS will be ran to my existing Patch Panel in the Garage.

    I also heard that a Coaxable is used in some cases if we do not ask for the Fibre to the House, I like how the Fibre line for Openband was ran into my garage and used a media converter (fibre to rj45) to plug into my Router/patch panel.

    Any information on this will be helpful.

    Thanks.

    During the meeting we had with engineers from Verizon, they indicated that fiber would be connected directly to each home and that they would use the existing panel infrastructure and connections wherever possible. They will also need to install a wireless router as well (I assume).
    I assume you are talking about the new Southern Walk installation.
