bt fiber cable been laid

hi anyone help me on this our llocal school is having fibre optic broadband installed today and the wires run outside my house there is a lid outside my house that the bt men are working on pluling the cable along the underground pipes they have

 

would bt allow users on my street to use this cable to get bt infinity broadband or is it not allowed to be shared with the rest of the street? 

 

my front door is about 12 ft from where they r working down in the hole the school is aprox about 150 yrs up the street

 

thanks for reading

The school is most likely having a dedicated FTTP leased line installed. No-one else can have access to it. You could always purchase you own leased line.

Re: bt fiber cable been laid

As Pip says it's probably a bussines/school direct installation.

 

What I would suggest though is going and have a brief chat with them to see if Fibre To The Cabinet will be coming.

I spoke to loads of Openreach engineers over the six months they were working around my town.

They were very helpful and enjoyed talking briefly with someone with a bit of knowledge of Infinity/FTTC and who was intersted in their work. They would never give a commitment of when though.... just on target, coming soon etc

But at least you may find out if it's due in your area at some point.

 

I couldn't believe under one of the man holes of the street that I walked over each day.... was actually a bloomin' great room with electric lights... and he enjoyed my reaction as I looked down as he turned the light on.

Thats more than likely why the school is having a lease line put it.

There are special contracts for schools with both BT and VM.
