* be due to a recent change to the connectorised install process ....
All connectorised installs now have a ‘pre-visit’ ..... done to prevent some of the on the install day issues which were delaying tasks.
For both OH and UG pre-visits the routed port on the CBT is checked for light and the level checked.
For a UG job either the fibre is rodded and pulled through leaving a coil outside the property. Or roped to ease the pulling in of the fibre. This will highlight blocked or no duct issues prior to the install.
For OH line of sight between CBT and property checked, length of fibre required, D poles en route, road crossings, hoists required, tree cutting etc.
So while some of these issues might mean a delay to install date, it should ensure it goes OK on the actual date.
This is just a theory as to why it now shows as a two stage task. Other crackpot ideas are equally plausible.
