FTTP and green boxes on poles


[link to this post]
 
I think my exchange is doing FTTP to my house HR4 8LW? There are new cables overhead and a new green box on the telegraph pole outside my house that engineers have been fiddling with. Does that mean I get FTTP and if so how long before I can order/use it?
Sorry if this has been answered elsewhere but couldn't find it.
Thanks.

Yes the plan is for you to have FTTP.

http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre-cornwall/pages/im... shows the inside which is a set of fibre trays, which will feed the manifolds (http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre-cornwall/pages/image/imagepage14.html) which live at the top of the poles in the area.

In terms of how long, very much a how long is a piece of string, main delay will be getting a fibre splice team into the area to blow and connect all the fibre together. Might be a week, a month or a year.
