That is just the ducting, you need to have seem them playing with compressor to blow actual fibres and the fusion splicer e.g. http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre-milton-keynes/wgc...

That's what I thought when I was talking to them in July 2015, I asked them about blowing the fibre but they said it wasn't needed for this short distance, i.e. they only replaced the fibre cables between the fibreDP hardware, they also said that they used a cable with more fibres (i.e. 96 strands) due to that's all that they had on the trailer.
I thought and said that good then we have more fibres, sadly they said nope it would all depends on what they connect it to the main end, and it would just mean there is spare strands in case one gets damaged.
But yeah, I assume the fibre was there where that cable was connected to due to the splicer guy arrived that next day to do all the splicing and joining on the two cables where it had broken.
I think I did see the guy loop up several strands in the wafers in one of the FibreDP hardware, I assume that is what will go up the ducting up the pole when people order the fibre.
Also it was completely different cables that is going up the pole, it did have loads of fibre strands in the cable.
Its the actual cable that is thinner that they connect between each FibreDB hardware in each of the chambers down our road.
As for seeing the compressor, I had to go out for a medical appointment at the hospital the actual day they replaced the cable, and they was finished and packing up when I was getting back, but they showed me the cable they put in and yes I saw the fibres.
I do understand if there was no already blown fibre then they would use empty ducting, but I was told fibre was blown back end of 2011 and that all they replaced was all the cabled between the FibreDP hardware which was why they used that cable that had fibre in it.
I wish I took a spare piece of it now.
But, yeah, I guess I will just have to wait 3 weeks to see if they resolve our errors in our records.
TBH I am hoping in 3 weeks time, its we have now resolved your issue and now you can order fibre.
