Full fibre installation

Go to solution

I am having full fibre installed in a couple of weeks and want to prepare the cable route into my house myself.  Does anyone know what size hole needs to be drilled?  Also does the inside box need to go directly opposite the outside box or can I put it anywhere as long as I can get the cable to it and it has a power source?

I got Full Fibre installed last year and drilled the hole myself, I used a 6mm Drill and that was perfect.

The fibre is not terminated on one end so is just fed from the inside and then spliced in the CSP outside.

The inside box (ONT) does not need to be directly opposite the outside one (CSP), as long as a power source is available. The fibre cable will then be routed along the outside to point of entry from the CSP. Ideally the ONT will be mounted to an outside wall otherwise the engineer could refuse the install.

Why do you think drilling the hole yourself will be better than the engineer doing it?

Thank you for the advice, it is going to be  a little more challenging than I thought due to the layout of my property.

Don't forget you can run a CAT5e (or above) ethernet cable from the ONT to the router (or from the router) up to 100mtrs to wherever you need it.
