Hang on there a moment, you may want to re-address this. Some internet services that deliver fiber won't allow you to just convert it to Ethernet from fiber, you need to use their special box. Speaking from experience, I have 1 gig fiber from ATT. 

 

Also, that media converter which was linked is FAST Ethernet, which is 100 meg MAX. If you have 1 gig service, the MOST you will get using that device, if it works, is 100 meg.

Might not be hooking up to an isp. Plenty of people use fiber for internal networking now a days.
