No, fiber-optic internet signals don’t radiate Wi-Fi signals. They’re two different items that get paired together to bring fiber internet to all your connected devices. One is not the source of the other’s signal but you need both in tandem to share your lightning-fast fiber internet with all your connected devices. Here’s a basic look at how they work together:

Fiber internet utilizes fiber-optic cables, either subterranean or aligned with aerial infrastructure, to deliver unparalleled data transmission speeds. Upon subscription, an Optical Network Terminal (ONT) is seamlessly integrated into your home's exterior. This ONT interfaces directly with the provider's fiber backbone. For internal connectivity, an Ethernet link bridges the ONT and your home network. This cable feeds into your Wi-Fi router, translating the fiber's photonic signals into electronic data streams. With the synergy of fiber optics and a robust router, your devices enjoy high-speed, low-latency internet connectivity.
