Right now i am running fibre internet in my house. Telus last year installed a little box behind my optik tv boxes where one end Coax goes in and out the other is ethernet that you then plug into the optik box to get your TV signal. I have actually been using that box to hardwire my xbox into and now get 150 MBPS down.
My question is if I cancel my Telus optik TV (keep the internet) will I lose internet capabilities through that little Coax to ethernet box?
Solved! Go to Solution.
It may depend if Telus considers the adapters part of the Optik hardware, or not. You can look for MOCA adapters to see the cost to install your own adapters.
The MOCA adapter is considered part of Telus equipment, if you remove TV service it will be uninstalled. Since your internet service is provided on fibre you will keep the same modem and same ONT (converts fibre to internet) so you should just emulate the wiring and purchase an adapter, it works the same way. You could just run an ethernet cable from modem, however, and it should be the same.
