Install in Northern Ireland

I'm thinking of 'upgrading' to FTTP but I have gotten myself totally confused.

Having read on here and my own experience tells me it is correct, in Northern Ireland, in houses built in the not too distant past, 1995 for me, ducts were laid for the BT copper lines to come straight into the house and come out at or near the BT Master Socket.

As I understand it, it is normally possible for the Installation Engineer to feed the new fibre through that duct - otherwise it is a lot of digging!

Assuming that the duct can be used, what is installed?

Do they have to put a 'CSP' on an external wall? Which then connects to an 'ONT' on an internal wall? How far apart can a 'CSP' be from an 'ONT'?

The normal situation in NI is that a hole will be dug at the property wall to  access the duct. Not a lot of digging.

The ONT can be many metres from the  CSP,  it is merely a splice point.
