Well as of this morning our phone line went over to fibre, only took 4 weeks and 3 days to happen.
Anyway we received an email from BT as well as a SMS with the 3 steps where the 1st and 2nd was to flip the switch from copper to fibre and the 3rd being phone the supplied number while on the fibre line and follow the instructions.
Sadly we had no FVA NTE face plate to switch which is fine, the engineer did ask me if I wanted one fitted when he installed our fibre, he did say that it will stick out up to an inch which could get knocked and that there is no reason for it if we are to no longer use the copper line.
So I told him just leave the two wires in the NTE5a box and I will use my IDC punch tool to remove the old copper wires and attach the new ones when it goes live.
He was happy with that.
Last week I received a phone call from BT on behalf of our case handler from BT asking about our FVA install and asked if we needed an engineer to do any install, basically the FVA face plate.
I told the guy on the phone that the engineer already created the cable from the ONT to the master socket and curled up the wires and where I had all the required tools etc and the line of work that I used to do he was happy me doing this when it goes live.
I was expecting them to say don't touch it but the BT guy on the phone (FTTH / exec complaints) said that's fine but if I do run into any issues I was to phone them.
So it just shows you BT don't always mind you touching the phone line beyond the master socket (i.e. NTE5A to BT80 boxes) if you know what your doing.
Now all I have to wait for now is the compo team to phone
