Attaching AC 1900 cable modem router to fiber optic modem

 I am planning to change my network from a cable to a fiber optic provider.

 

Can i detach my AC 1900 c1000v2 from the cable and attach it to a new fiber optic modem and continue to have it serve as a stand alone router?

The basic answer to your question is no.  The optical network terminal (ONT) for your fiber connection supplies data over an Ethernet output.  The C1000v2 cable modem router requires data input over coax.  There is no Ethernet input option for your C1000v2.
