Default What do I need to know to prepare for Bell Fibe?

hey all,

So, I currently have Bell Sat. TV and I know eventually Bell will want to migrate everyone over to Fibe. I want to find out what I need to do in terms of wiring to prepare for the switch before I close up my basement.

Here's my current setup:

-Dish is mounted on the south side of the house. Coax cables enter the basement and are routed to the panel area where they connect to the cable drops.
-Bell demarc is located on the north side of the house. Tel cable enters and is routed to the panel area. There are no coax cables on the north side.
-Currently 2 receivers running. One on the main floor and one on the 2nd level.
-modem and router are located on the main floor in den. There is no coax line in this room but I could easily run one if Bell Fibe modem requires it, or I could re-locate modem to the basement.

My main concerns are:

1. Do I need to install a coax line out to the north side of the house to string to the demarc? Or is the tel line enough?

2. How do the Fibe receivers connect and interconnect? I assume they would connect using the existing coax the satellite uses? What do they connect to on the other side?

3. How do they connect to each other (to share the PVR)? Do I need RG45 from each Fibe receiver to my router? If so the 2nd floor would be a problem.

I can't think of any other questions at the moment. Appreciate any insight anyone can offer.
