Connecting to an existing fibre cable

[link to this post]
Hi everyone. I have just found out that around 300m from my house there is a 24 fibre optic cable that is owned by a private company. I'm currently awaiting more details about the fiber line but whist im waiting, I would like to know if anyone could explain what equipment would be required to potentially allow a small number of rural households to be able to connect up to the existing fiber line as I have not a great deal of technical fiber knowledge but would like to learn. many thanks

Usually you don't just splice into the middle of a fibre cable but connect at a joint.

A media converter and a router that work with whatever is at the other end too are needed, plus as its a private fibre it may just link two offices and not goto the internet directly.

All down to what they want to charge
