New Build, Cat 5E cable incoming...


[link to this post]
 
I've just got a new build property and I've noticed that there is a cat5e cable coming into the house. Not seen this before. Is it normal? (no chance of FTTH one day? wink )

While its a BT Cables Ltd bit of wire it might be nothing to do with BT broadband products, so need to ask developer

I think you'll find that's quite common these days, it's just the type of cable the sparks used, CAT5 used for extension wiring throughout too I expect. My new build is exactly the same.

As for FTTH, that appears to be down to the developers choice, new estates over 30 houses are (reportedly) being offered it. Plenty of estates like that going up round this way.

Often used instead of CW1308 in new builds.
No issues with that as far as I'm concerned.

Spot on (as aways !)

A fibre planner told me all new estates over 30 houses are now offered FTTH.
