I am after a simple explanation of what I know must be a complex topic.
I live in a very rural area where Openreach have put fibre on poles with 'pods'. A very few properties (no more than 5 so far) have been connected FTTP but already many are being refused connection because of 'lack of capacity'
At first this was blamed on lack of cablelinks but now that this has been resolved we are now being told there is a lack of 'splitters' in the network and an Openreach has said the splitters are in the 'pods'. Would adding extra splitters be a straightforward process and is there a limit to the number of times splitters can be 'cascaded' to create extra connections.
It is difficult to understand how the initial design which has capacity for as few as 5 could have been put forward. Can such a design really become future-proof
