Yeah, the fibre would terminate at the ONT device which just gives you an ethernet out. You'd need to use your own AP / router. (Try to avoid Double NAT though when you setup the wireless AP / router -- What is Double NAT? | Answer | NETGEAR Support Basically you'd need to keep the ONT device in bridge mode and let your wireless router do NAT)

ont is what they would give you. it would give you an ethernet cable. that you connect to your own self owned wireless router. which can be used to connect to computers using ethernet or wireless. ont is basically a device that converts the fiber coming to your place to ethernet.

Yes, they gave me ONT along with battery and also they set up a box. They told me to purchase an MI Router in order to use WIFI.

the box has a cable coming out that connects to your pc/modem. You have to buy wifi router yourself and plug the cable to the router and from router to pc. BSNL fools so many people, which is the first reason I am against this company.Most ISP's should provide a wifi router at installation.
EDIT: Forgot to add ISP takes extra money to give you the router, which saves the hassle of buying and setting it up.
