A community fibre project does not necessarily go anywhere near BT infrastructure.

The incoming connections will be sourced from whichever provider offers the most cost-effective solution, which may or may not use any BT infrastructure.

Depending on the type of deployment, the end-user connections may use:
  • the copper from the BT cabinet, siting their own cabinet nearby (sub-loop unbundling to provide FTTC)
  • BT ducts and poles only (physical infrastructure access)
  • their own trenches and other civil engineering (or the use of assets leased from an organisation other than BT)

In reality, it's a case of the most cost-effective solution for each link.
