FTTP via External Grey New Build NTE


[link to this post]
 
All,

Does anyone know if BT have a method from blowing fibre into the external grey NTE's used on new builds?

The existing infrastructure in the area I'm talking about has *MANY* OR manholes and ducts but there is a question being raise about getting fibre into premises in the area - BT dropping hints and suck though their teeth.

There is existing fibre into the area and the ducts are brand new.

Regards,


Gareth

The fibre will not go to the grey external NTE or internal NTE. The fibre for FTTP will go to a new external fibre termination box, and a short tougher fibre go into the home.

Will the introduction of flexible fibre change this?

The problem is digging up roads and gardens when you already have a duct (of sorts) going to a property seem moronic.

A tube is pushing through the existing duct, and then the fibre blown down that, so the new external fibre external NTE will probably be next to the grey existing one. Then you will get a choice of where it will be run to indoors
