The combined fibre/copper dropwire


[link to this post]
 
As our little dinky hamlet is starting to see the signs of fttp being deployed I have a question. We currently have a single dropwire which supplies two phone lines to our house. Do the hybrid dropwires have more than one copper pair ?

(trying not to make this post confusing)

No, single copper pair only.

If the two lines currently run through a two pair dropwire, then that値l just be left in situ.

You do realise that you値l not be automatically connected ?

You値l have to place an order with the provider of your choice once the infrastructure is in place.

Would you still want 2 copper lines if you had FTTP? If I was able to get it I would use a VOIP phone service and not pay any phone line rental although I believe for some inexplicable reason BT retail don't allow this and still charge line rental even on FTTP only services using fibre voice access (FVA) which is basically VOIP. Other ISPs are more reasonable and allow a fibre only connection with no copper line rental charge.

Inexplicable ? So this stuff will just maintain itself ?

Yep tongue And if i want to stay with my current provider, i will have to wait a little. My reply to you, was a poor phrasing of words, i meant connected as in "copper dp with in 160m of me", as according to Hampshire county council, only part of my post code will be able to order fttp (the road has only 18 properties)

I don't want to port both lines to voip. Anyhoo one of the copper lines will go after any fttp install, as i don't need the 2nd phone line. The ideal situation is have the internet line go straight fibre only and the other line use the copper pair on the hybrid line. I may not be able get this done at install time, hence my original question and also why i said, i don't want to complicate it .
