Local pole - fttp equipment ?

Can anyone identify the equipment on this pole directly across from my house, is it fibre for fttp for instance?

 

Thanks in advance.

Yes it’s FTTP. That’ll either be a Splitter or Intermediate Node.

I’d imagine at the top of the Pole will be a box that looks a bit like an egg box painted black?

Thanks. Yeah, there's a black box near the top.  I'm relatively rural so surprised to see one at this property. Definitely a bonus.

Cheers

Lots or Rural areas are getting FTTP, most is being funded by BDUK.

Where abouts are you?

Kirkgunzeon, Southwest of Scotland . Looks like the local exchange is about a mile away , the pole being approx 5m from my door.

Ah right, no where near me then.

I know the Scottish Government are investing heavily in FTTP. Some of the remote islands have it already. 

It’s funny because it used be to rural places like yours complained that the Towns/Cities had the better FTTC Speeds but it now it’s the rural areas getting the FTTP first. It’ll be worth the wait.
