new pole


[link to this post]
 
just spotted a sign from openreach in my little lane in rural norfolk,
the printed sign with handwritten details mentions a new "fibre/broadband pole with attachments to be erected in the verge opposite my neighbours house. there is also another sign stating the same about 100 yards away.
Could this mean FTTP (PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) exchange is Walcott and I am about 1.5 from my nearest cab (2)and about 2 miles from the exchange

No expert here but sounds like it. They dont usually put Fibre on poles unless they plan to distribute it.

Well fibre is often used from poles for leased lines, mobile masts etc to be honest. But yes it seems more likely this would be for FTTP.

Check on roadworks.org for the local area to see if there are any BT works scheduled.

Just from interest, first Openreach news item here: News and updates 15 Dec 2016

Engineers swap holes for poles to link up remote hamlet with Ultrafast broadband

Might not be related at all but it's interesting for hiking the poles over the fells.
