What is a NID / Where is my NID

NID is short for Network Interface Device

An NID is a small Verizon box generally located on the wall outside the premises. Some older devices may look different from the pictures below.

Note Although the lines are grounded, do not open the NID or test the lines during rain, a thunderstorm, other hazardous weather conditions, or if there is water pooled on the ground near the NID.
