Driving along today I noticed a couple of KN Network vans installing some sort of equipment on the bottom of a couple of telegraph poles. On the way back I had a closer look.
According to the image in the link below, it seems they were installing a pair of Fibre To The remote Node Hybrid Closure units. (Approx. 300 yards apart from memory)
Is this technology finally being rolled out here in Northern Ireland, or is it still in the trial phase?
My area has already been enabled for FTTC but i'm about 500m past the last house on my road that can receive the VDSL service.
The KN guys were working on a different exchange, so i'm just curious if it's worth my while holding off ordering some ISP grade wireless kit to bring broadband to my location from 2-3 miles away where I could get it installed.
It's the first time i've seen this equipment, so perhaps it's a long way off before they have it everywhere that VDSL doesn't reach.
