Hi all, I was wondering if someone could help me with some information.
BT/Openreach is installing what seems to be FTTP to about 10 rural properties close to me. Distance from the exchange to the properties is about 3,000 metres.
I and 7 other homes also live about 3,000 metres from the exchange. BT has installed a 32 way tray splitter on a post 2,400 metres from the exchange. From that post they are continuing the fibre optic run to 8 of the original set of 10 homes I mention above and 2 houses right next to the post.
I questioned BT why we weren't being supplied with high speed from that post as we're only 600 metres away from it. They first said distance. I told them we weren't any further than the original set of homes mentioned above from the exchange and that the splitter was only 600 metres away.
Now they say there aren't spare fibres close by.
My question is how many fibres are there in the optic bundle they're running up from the exchange to the 32 way tray splitter?
The cable says Blown Fibre Tubing Mark3(2.7/4.0mm) and on yellow tags it says Fibre capacity: DAAIPQQ-DAAIPQS
This fibre bundle isn't being used for any other properties except the 10 above. Can such a fibre bundle handle about 20 homes?
Do they in fact have spare fibres and can they connect the unconnected homes.
Thanking you all in advance.
