Re: Fibre Installation Question

I’m not sure what you mean by joint box but the junction box cabinet at the end of the street, which we have been informed is live as it takes fibre to the next village along. They spurred off this for the new development. The engineers also advised the the manhole has been set to allow for our development to also be fibre enabled.

Re: Fibre Installation Question

You said,

‘Before Christmas we had contractors run fibre for Openreach to a forthcoming housing development next door to my house. They added a junction box outside my property. ’

By Junction Box I assume you mean a Joint Box, the rectangle shape hole in the ground.

Sorry I work in Telecoms, there’s no such terminology as a Junction Box so I assume you meant a Joint Box, as in a hole in the ground that has Cable Joints, Ag Nodes, Splitters, Manifolds, etc in it.

Are you talking about one of the Green Cabinets. They’re not Junction Boxes. Officially they’re called PCP, Primary Cross Connection Points but most call them Cabs for short.

If it is a Cab then it’s not FTTP then as FTTP doesn’t need or use Cabs.

Re: Fibre Installation Question

Ok great to get the correct terminolgy. The Cab we have been informed has been fibre enabled. Fibre was run from the cab to the joint box with splitters etc 5m from my front door, the copper and the new fibre run side by side with the copper spurred off in ducting to my front door.

Re: Fibre Installation Question

I’m still confussed. Is the latest phase of the Development getting FTTP or are they on a PCP that is FTTC Enabled?

Re: Fibre Installation Question

As you can see from the picture the fibre runs past my front door (blue Door in the background), Openreach are advising that we cannot get connected to fibre.  I cannot understand how if there is a connector in this unit then why fibre cannot be spurred off this, this is how I got fibre to an offshore oilrig using the the subsea junction.

 

Yes the new development will be getting FTTP, the fibre has already been run from the junction box to its new termination just past my house. Why can Openreach not spur off to allow FTTP?

Re: Fibre Installation Question

Just because a fibre cable may be ran through a jointbox outside your home doesn't mean that your home is able to take advantage of it, it's not as though someone from Openreach  can simply splice another fibre cable to that and 'voila' you have a fibre service, optical network design is a little more involved than that.


It's possible ( if you were prepared to possibly foot the bill) then FTTPod ( fibre to the premises on demand) could be ( relatively ) inexpensive, but BT Consumer don't offer FTTPod , you would have to search company's that do , and potentially be happy to pay £££'s to get a fibre service to your home , some are quoted 10's of thousands of ££'s for this product but if your assertion that the fibre is right outside your door , and if the aggregation node is also close by , then it could cost much less, you can get a ballpark quote for free,( from ISP's that sell FTTPod)  but to progress the job you have to pay around £250 non returnable deposit for a bespoke , contractual price quote.

You are posting on a BT Consumer forum about an Openreach cable outside your home , presumably you wouldn't go onto a S?y or a T@lk T@lk forum and ask why you cannot have 'fibre', but you do so on here, yet BT Consumer have no more or less influence on OR as to where they deploy their network than these companys...BT Consumer and Openreach are not one and the same thing, seems to me it's you are asking a (legitimate) question but in the wrong place ,

It would be pointless asking on the Sky or Talk Talk forums, they don't sell residential FTTP.

Re: Fibre Installation Question

We have been advised by BT that the  box for the house is FTTP compatible, but no fibre was run.
