P.s. anyone know how to post pictures that it ‘shows’ directly in this forum... or is that disabled?

Direct is disabled, so that people can see what they are clicking URL wise rather than auto loading images from everywhere

I believe that function is disabled.

Interesting (to me) to note that the fibres coatings are red .... All the ones I've used have been white, and a a bit of a PITA to work with. Well done Corrning for actually listening and changing part of your product.

Some of the pictures particularly the one with 'Property of BT' make the cable appear as a sort of double cable. What is the thin bit for?

I think that's the copper running with the fibre (see the last pic description).

Exactly, known as ‘hybrid’ it has a single copper pair running alongside.

The idea is that you use the current copper cable to ‘cut and draw’ the fibre into place. Split the copper off at the property and reconnect to the original copper lead in .... the fibre is then run on to the the ONT location.

So does that mean that under then new 1 stage process the fibre comes in through the same conduit the the original phone cable used - using the old cable to pull in the new one?

If you mean from outside to inside the property, then no. Separate entry is preferred, the hybrid stuff won't fit through the lead in kits provided, these stop the fibre sagging in the wall cavity and allow for easier replacement if needs be, also you can hide the change from black to white cable sheathing within the conduit in the wall.

If you by conduit you mean the UG duct to the property, then yes ....


Technically (well as technical as OR bods get) 'cut and draw usually refers to the technique used to replace overhead spans. Since poles have limitations on how many cables radiate out to properties within the quadrants of the ring head {based on type of pole, yada yada yada} It is preferred that if the connectorised process is used the existing span of copper dropwire is used to cut and draw to replace like for like leaving both copper and fibre in the same span ............. Clear as mud I daresay, but I kinda understood it. grin

Ok, I think I mostly understand that! Just trying to get my head round it. Currently the phone cable comes down the lane in a grey 'pipe' underground to the edge of the property then magically runs across the garden some how and comes out of a smaller conduit that connects to the the master socket on the wall in the hall. If / when / maybe fibre is available does this existing cable play some role in things or is it completely separate?

Each scenario is unique .... some of the existing feed may be used, maybe not.

Don’t fret, sorting this kinda stuff out is Openreach’s bag, let them handle it. NOT worth fretting over by you.
