Hyperoptic install, in pictures

Found this blog post over at another site showing what to expect if you're lucky enough to have Hyperoptic available. tongue

Two comments:

1 Gbps service that only tests at 94Mbps

and

A very cowboy install using Choc Blocs for Cat5e and phone connections.

AFAIK the person selected their 100Mb offering.

From original forum -

Ah I only pay for 100mb/100mb, the 1gb/1gb option was a bit too pricey when I'd never come close to making use of it (yet!)

I can't believe how cheap and nasty it all looks. They've ran fibre to the apartment and then used a £30 1000LX media convertor to convert it to copper, almost defeating the point of originally using fibre. A cheaper and smarter way would be to just run cat6a to the apartment via the same route they've used for fibre, future proof for 10Gb/s if that's what they're after...

The "choc blocs" method is nasty as MHC has said. I also don't under why they've ran a patch cable from the media convertor, terminated it into an RJ45 wall module, then plugged another patch cable in and ran that to the router, pretty poor attempt at a demarcation point, adding more clutter to the whole setup.

I was expecting more from the much hyped Hyperoptic.

Connector block for cat5 connection, that is extremely poor.
So much so I'd complain and get them to come back and redo it.

Yes, the pairs should be twisted together right up to the connection point.
