Re: FTTP install - size of fibre tube from ONT to CSP

Go to solution

I suspect it will be radius that is important rather than angle.

A good rule of thumb is 15 times cable outside diameter, for fibre. This may well be a 70mm bending radius.

..unless you can find the cable specification, which would be difficult, I suspect.

Typical as I want to run the ducting before hand needs to do 3 or 4 90o to be wife friendly really. The FFTP home hub boxes are £80 so don't really want to put that on show otherwise 3 year old will have field day with fibre connector!

In my case, it was not the angle or number of them, but as posted above, the bend radius that the installer took great care with.  In one case there was a 270 degree angle with large enough radius as a better means of doing a 90.  However, that would not work here.

 

@chrisbond - is it actually boxing you are going around, or a brick pillar?  If boxing, such as covering a soil pipe, is there any chance of drilling and going through the boxing (whoever drilling taking care not to drill what is inside)?
