Does Every X1 installation have a PoE MoCA filter installed by a tech?

Does Every X1 installation have a PoE MoCA filter installed by a tech?

Reading about how data can go outside my home via MoCA unless there is a PoE filter installed.  My understanding is that X1 utilizes MoCA -- Can I assume if I have an X1 installation that the tech would have installed the filter?

Yes, it's a safe assumption. It may be at the tap, the ground block or the first splitter in your house.

Well I just found out I did not have it on after the last technican left.. 5 months later I had another problem and the technician just put it on and I had no idea what I was missing. He said the last technician forgot to put it on. Never knew what it was after all these years and neighbors with X1
