[Networking] About Fiber Broadband
Does anyone know what a Fiber Terminal Point is? I have it installed in order to use fiber broadband. Does it have any radiations that harms the body? I'm worried as it is installed in my bedroom.

This is just a socket on the wall where the optic fibre is brought into your house and terminated. It poses no risk as long as you don't plug a fibre into it and look into the end of the fibre strand for too long.
It is an inconvenient place to put it though. Because that is where your ONT is going to need to be installed. This is like your broadband router. You will need to find a way to get your internet from there to other parts of your home where you are likely to need it, such as your study and your lounge room. Generally wireless does not do so well going through too many walls, so if you have more than one or two internal walls between your bedroom and where you are wanting your wifi to reach then you could have a problem.
But be thankful you have fibre to the home. You are amongst a few elite in the world. ;)
Thanks for your reply, I was previously using a network plan from 10 years ago, now I'm really excited to have one that is much faster.
