@DavidM Will do! The earliest i can get an engineer out is 17th November so a little wait haha.
Just fingers crossed like starman said they can run the external fibre cable through my loft out the back and fit a CSP on the ground level then run another cable back up to my room where the existing copper line is.
Would it not be possible to run the cable back up and through the attic then fit the CSP ground level at the back of the house and run the cable up the wall back where the copper cable goes into my bedroom?
I think if you fitted a length of round 15mm electrical trunking with a drawstring across the attic the installer would be willing to use it and proceed as you have suggested. Its always useful to make things as quick and easy for the installer as possible.
Yeah i'll look into the options, Hopefully i can just do as i did before and help the engineer and pull the fibre cable through the loft out the back of the house and into my bedroom. If it's not possible im more than fine with him doing it in the front of the house and placing the ONT up on top of the stairs and just run a longer cat6 or cat7 cable to my bedroom (around 10-15m cable needed?) i think the limit for a fibre optic cable is 100m right? So hopefully i'm fine either way! I suffer with extreme anxiety and planning things and having the "what if's" in my head is crazy lol, "What if he comes and say's it's not possible to install" Stupid but that's how my brain works. Sorry for the super long explanation nobody asked for haha,
Thanks for answering guys/gals 😄
@DavidM Hi David, Just had it installed. They did exactly what i was thinking about doing, Only thing is my upload speed is 20mbps? It was 50mbps but it did a reset on its own and dropped the upload down to 20mbps. I was wondering if you could help please?
Thanks for the update @Okaydan .
The upload should sort itself out over the next few days. If you don't see any improvement by Monday drop me a reply to my message in your inbox now.
@DavidM Just checked the speed and it's back to 110 upload, Thanks for helping with everything.
The speed difference between FTTC and FTTP is just mind blowing lol, And the fact that my engineer told me i was the only person with fibre in my town blows my mind lol (live in the middle of nowhere lol)
Here's a before and after
Hi @Okaydan That's great thanks for updating the thread, those speed test results are fantastic.
Thank you and all the other Moderators for the incredible help!
I do have a quick question if you could answer? I ordered the fibre and it said it came with xbox game pass ultimate 12 month for free and i haven't received an email on how to claim it, I was wondering if you knew how i could get it please?
