Re: ultrafast equipment

Obviously they bring an FTTP Cable to your house.

Depending on whether it’s a Legacy (Blown) Fibre or CBT Network then they may have to install a CSP on the outside of your house. Some Engineers still Install CSP’s on CBT Fibre.

They then fit a ONT inside your house. It’s quite big(ish) but you can’t have FTTP without it.

Your Router then plugs into the ONT.

If it’s Legacy (Blown) Fibre then they’ll put up Fibre Tuping to the house.

If it’s CBT Fibre then the cable does carry a Copper Pair in it.

Depending on the Engineer and the location you want the ONT they may just leave the existing copper cable up and put the Hybrid Fibre/Copper Cable up as well.
