Fibre to pole

Go to solution

We have had FTTC supply for a number of years and Fibre has just been installed on the local poles. I'm not sure of the technical options now. Is there an option to just connect the copper to my house to the fibre at the pole or is it necessary to replace the house connection with fibre as well? I appreciate still having some copper in the route may be slower but I'm not sure how my house wiring could be changed. What are the effects and speed options?

Yes there is  definitely FTTP with a new fibre cable to the house available. The question is can my copper from the house be connected at the to the fibre at the pole without the need for recabling to the house as that might be tricky. It may not give the maximum speed but enough for me.

Sorry to be confusing. The question is still is it technically possible to have a connection made from the house by my existing copper to the fibre on the pole not by a new last link by fibre to the house. It may be slower but better than FTTC.

There are no electronics at the pole, there is no interface for copper it is just a fibre splitter/combiner. An ONT which is an optical/electrical interface and modem is fitted in your house to convert the incoming fibre to an RJ45 presented electrical signal.
