Question New HDB BTO Flat - How do you connect your Home Fiber Network

I understand new HDB BTO flats come with structured data cabling.

Anyone able to share their fiber network schematic?
As in how you wire up your home with or without the patch points provided?

I want to understand where the Fiber termination point will be and where do you install your modem, router, etc.

Tks.

For New BTO flats, there is a box at your riser area where all the data point terminates. That is where you can setup your switches, router if you want, then setup access point in living room or any of the room if the signal cannot reach the rest of the house. Tat's wat I did on my previous home.

all new HDB comes with telephone points in bedrooms and living room. All connected via Cat6. I was told the telephone points can be used for data points.

Is the box at the riser big enough to fit a modem, router, switches?

Im quite new to networking as well. So this could be a really silly question.

I plan to use the digital voice line provided by the broadband or fiber providers.

If all the points terminate in the riser and I connect my modem & router in the riser, will I still be able to connect my phone to the point in the living room?

You sure, my flat does comes with telephone points in bedrooms and living room, store room and kitchen also have.

But the problem is phone point is different from LAN point. you cannot fit a lan Cable into a phone point leh.

Yes I tried, the tel port (04 Wire) is too small for the Lan Port (8 Wire).

New Flat now is all Lan Port? wow. Like that no need to lay cable in whole house.

Mine is a 6 year old resale flat. Phone & ethernet ports in everyroom. Dunno cat 5, 5e or 6 but anyway am not gonna waste $ & give myself headaches by ripping it out of the walls & put some super brand 6a cables in lah.

Patch panel located in utility closet which is next to main door so i got opennet to install TP inside the closet. There is a dual power socket inside the closet so my ONT can be inside the closet.

I just need to connect my pc to any ethernet port in any room & viola. Dont use wireless lah. Wired faster & since all the cables inside the wall, no need to worry about hacking.

But the thing is my utility closet is big & has power outlet in it so no issue. I have seen some newer flats, the patch panel is insid this small thing located in living room. No way u can fit the ONT inside & besides, no power outlet nearby.

Why not posts some pics of your layout?

you Lucky ler, the previous owner already put ethernet ports in everyroom. Mine is new direct from HDB, HDB only put Electric and Phone Port, Cable (Hope it's Ethernet port instead). every room including kitchen and storeroom have this 03 Port.

When I renovate that time didn't think of Laying ethernet ports, sign.....

What about your router? were did you put your Router?

can't one just use a rj45 convertor or jack into the telephone provided to turn it into a lan point?

I'm still waiting for the keys to my BTO.
Anyone who just moved into a NEW BTO flat and can show some photos of the utility box/closet and data points in the house?

I have yet to find a converter. Let me know if u found one. But I don't think it will work too as LAN cable have 8 working line. Phone only have 04 max. The picture u show here only have 02 line connected. U do the maths.
