FTTP on the way?


[link to this post]
 
We've had Openreach at the bottom of our road a few weeks ago, digging and laying pipes

Neighbour asked what they were doing and they said it was for fibre to enable the F.O lines to be pulled through our road (and another adjoining) up to the cabinet

So I'm assuming from this we can expect FTTP, but has anyone got any idea how long it takes to go from them doing the pipework to actually setting up the F.O lines?


(I'm guessing the answer may be 'how long's a piece of string?)

Cheers all

Somewhere along the way there could be a "word of mouth" misunderstanding.

For FTTC the fibre goes either to a new cabinet near to the existing phone one, with the two cabinets then getting a copper link to merge phone and VDSL2, or it goes to an All-In-One that replaces the existing cabinet if there is one. The latter happening when the phone lines are fed directly from the exchange with no phone cabinet. (EO lines). The final stretch to the home is still copper in both cases.

For FTTP cabinets are not involved. Only underground aggregation points. (Glorified fibre junction boxes). Then the fibre to the premises may go completely underground or partly underground and partly via ordinary telegraph poles. However, the FTTC cabinets are also fed from aggregation points, and any particular aggregation point can feed both FTTC cabinets and FTTP.

I hope for you the misunderstanding was the use of the word "cabinet". Perhaps a loose usage by the Openreach people as they wouldn't be wanting to go into lengthy explanations smile. FTTP is done by cabinet area so ....

Good luck. Let us know what transpires.

Could be a copper rearrangement, putting the EO lines into an existing PCP that is already fibre enabled for FTTC.

Could be, but that would be a big misunderstanding by someone in the chain, as the OP says it was reported as being to pull fibre.

Sorry,

What's PCP?

It could be read that way, but the words aren't really clear about what is being pulled: to enable our FO lines to be pulled through to the cabinet.

Could be pulling copper, to enable fibre connectivity.

PCP is the phone cabinet. Primary/Principal Connection Point, I forget which.

Primary Connection Point.

The existing green cabinets that BT engineers use to make connection back to the exchange and, nowadays, connect into the colocated FTTC cabinet.

What's an F.O line?
