This afternoon, a Windstream tech install fiber in my basement. (thin yellow cable)
The white Adtran box converts fiber to Ethernet for the modem
The black cord is power.
The Green cord is telephone cable (Voice)
The thick yellow cable is Ethernet (LAN) to modem
The thin yellow connection is fiber (Fiber)
I was able to keep my old modem, which takes Ethernet from the Adtran fiber to ethernet converter.

I still have the ability to call 911 on my phones (even though I dropped phone service).
The tech told me that the 911 call is routed over fiber.
Fiber into my Basement
The tech told me that fiber comes in a roll and really curls into a coil as it spreads out.
The black curling cable is fiber.
The other two cables coming from the ceiling are Ethernet and telephone.
