Fibre over the pole


[link to this post]
 
I was wondering if i could ask if anyone remembers a trial i belive was done some time ago where they where going to try to provide FttP via poles. not sure if it was virgin or bt that was doing it.

was it a success or not?

if it was how does it compare cost and serviceablity (ie how easy is it damaged) wise to installing new ducting?

You are perhaps on about the Virgin FTTP trial in Woolhampton, Berkshire ?

If so, I have been there several times in the last few weeks, and seen no evidence.

Openreach have been recently installing FTTP in the Chester South area so I was told by the Openreach guy installing FTTC in the Hawarden area.

Our doctor's surgery has had FTTP for some time, this via overhead dropwire or is it dropfibre? There is a notice on the adjacent pole warning of cutting the dropwire.

Cheers!

I dont think there has been anything, though the work may not have been on the A4 stretch of the village.

The Highams Park FTTP trial is for over the pole

I remain undecided to go for it or not and have seen no evidence of anyone yet being provisioned on the Highams Park trial on the forums here, on the Plusnet community forums or the forums of any other ISP taking part (very few)

I see the fibre runs up the pole opposite my house which were done months ago (late 2010 at least) and it is running over 6 months behind I believe

Might be FTTP into the GP but more likely to be a leased line for NHS N3 network

I would certainly agree with you there, however my post was more to say that an overhead delivery of fibre is already carried out.

I believe that for FTTP there will be some optical equipment (splitter?) mounted on the pole for overhead delivery.

A couple of days ago I was watching OR connect in the fibres for our local node which feeds the FTTC cabinets locally. The node itself being in a circular plastic container which after sealing goes into a manhole on the fibre route.

Cheers!
