The fiber optic cable socket (also known as an OTO socket) is an optical telecommunications socket (= OTO stands for Optical Termination socket). It connects your home to our ultra-fast fiber optic cable network.
If your apartment is already connected to the fiber optic cable network, this means you already have a fiber optic cable socket. You will usually find the fiber optic cable socket in your living room or entrance area
In order to activate fiber optic Internet in your home, we require your fiber number, also known as your OTO ID.
- The number is printed directly on the fiber optic cable socket (OTO socket).
- The number usually begins with an A or B (in some cases with an O or WP), followed by a 10-digit number in the following format: A.XXX.XXX.XXX.X.
- If you have any problems, your building management company or the previous tenant can give you the information you need.
- A fiber optic cable socket has up to four ports – the numbers 1 to 4 are printed in small type at the bottom of the fiber optic cable socket.
- During the activation process, we will inform you which ports are used for your products.
