Fibre block on pole?

Go to solution

On some of the telegraph poles in my village here are jointing pots half way up the pole and a series of small black round or square boxes. These were placed when the openreach contractors put fibre cable into my village. They are not on all the poles and someone told me that if you are served by these particular poles then you can get fibre to the property otherwise  you are stuck on Fttc for the foreseeable future.

Jointing Pots. 😆

They’re Splitters.

The Splitters used have 2 SASA’s that have 32 Way Splitters, so one could support enough for 64 customers.

The black boxes on the top of the Poles are CBT Connectorised Block Terminals. They range from 4 to 12 Port Blocks. They’ll connect to the Splitter and 2, 3, 4, etc can connect to one Splitter.

The CBT Fibre Cable comes in lengths of 33m to 350m so they’ll connect you to the nearest CBT.

Just because there isn’t a Splitter or CBT on the Pole that your current line is connected to doesn’t mean you can’t get it.
