I have purchased a property that's remote, 200 mtrs from pole. I am trenching in a new water pipe, a new electric cable and running a new phone cable in duct at the same time. no one seems to be able to help with while i'm doing this to run from the house to the pole a new fibre cable in ducting so as when fttp becomes available I don't want to dig 200 metres again in the future.
Is the phone cable duct the grey one supplied by Openreach?
If so then when and if you can get FTTP the Openreach Network Build Team, known as Stage 1 will pull in the Fibre Sub Duct when you order it.
They don't just put Fibre Cabling in the grey ducting along side the Copper Cable. They have to put in a Sub Duct that looks a bit like Hose Pipe. Then inside that they put fibre tuping in where they then blow in the fibre.
A fibre duct is entirley different from a phone duct, there is also no Sub Duct, there is only a Fibre Duct as there is no need for a copper one.
On new build estates the developer contacts Openreach and is supplied with and installs all ducts, pits, and EZ-Bend cables into the properties for the developer to install. Openreach will then supply FTTP from the nearest node (normally close to the nearest cabinet if FTTC enabled).
Existing properties unless by virtue of FTTP being available in the area would have to apply for FTTPoD which is intended for businesses only hence the extortionate cost of supply. No ISP currently supplies FTTPoD to residential customers.
