New neighborhood cables

I am not sure this is the right forum but I do not see a category that exactly matches.


My question has to do with new cables that Comcast is presently laying in my neightorhood. Is it fiber optic, and if so, will it be brought right to my house or will the street-to-house still be copper? The flyer they put on the door is vague about what is being installed, just that it is wonderfully marvelous.


I want to get my own cable modem and replace the one I rent from Comcast. Will this new equipment affect that in any way?
