In the US, how is your internet connection terminated in the home?

I’m based in the UK and I’m trying to find out how the internet connection is terminated in the US.

For example, assuming a wired connection via copper, in the UK we use RJ11 wall plates with the dsl signal on pins 2 and 3.

I know that in Europe they use RJ45 with the signal on pins 4 and 5.

Please can you advise how the service is delivered in the US?


In my corner of the world, Cox Communications uses optical cable only for backbone connections. Inside the house, the signal is RG-6U to my cable modem. I'm running CAT7 from the modem's 2.5 Gbps port to the 2.5 Gbps WAN port on my router. From there, some connections are hardwired, some are AC Ethernet, and some are Wi-Fi 6.

Mine is the same as @badhippie.  Fiber to the side of the house then converted to ethernet to my router.
