Route to cab


[link to this post]
 
Just wondering what kind of route my line takes from the pole to the cab.

So, my house is 205m from the PCP. The FTTC Cabinet is a little closer at 180m away. I live on a main road and the PCP and FTTC cab are on the same side of the road as me.

Would the connection go via the PCP then on to the FTTC cab doubling back on itself? Or would it just go straight to the FTTC cab? So the total line length would be something like (205 + 25 + distance of line from pole to house)?

You would need to check very carefully.

The main cable passes within 5 metres of my house on its way from the Exchange to the PCP about 50 metes further on, travelling northwards.

The FTTC is beside that main run, about 15 m from my house.

However, the local distribution wiring for my phone, no poles, all underground, travels about 125 m eastwards, then comes back westwards about the same distance.

So the FTTC/VDSL signals if I ordered, would travel 35 m + 125 m +125 m = approaching 300 m (allowing for other slight wanderings) to get to my house!
