@Till Are you OH or UG. Have you created a place for the ont and battery back and putting the house phone on pure fibre. I would 1/2 inch plastic conduit to the outside wall and up to point the fibre will come in from pole. If UG just above where the pipe comes out of the ground they would install a small box over the pipe and shove the fibre to the ont location. I am OH with no wires stapled to outside of house. This way no extra connection points for future trouble. You can strap the ceiling with 3/4 to hide the pipe. You can install cate cables to the ont location and place your router at best location in the house . Run 2 cates to the router. the second cate can feed a switch to hook the other cate runs to. Some people install all double runs of cate cheap backup. Polecat

Telus (at least on Vancouver Island) uses Simplex SC/APC optical cables.
I use one of these. If you're doing a run in the wall, you might also want a couple of Keystones for each end. fs.com used to have them, but I can't find them anymore. I'm sure you can find them cheaper than this, I paid about $5 each

Prime Cables is pretty good for some cables, however, they are ridiculously expensive for some of their fiber stuff, it looks like the SC/APC cables are similar in price though. They do have an SC keystone but it's not explicitly APC. It should work, but the losses may be significant.
