Fibre cable tied to pole?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

About a year ago our village got enabled for fttc via bduk.

Recently OR have attended the pole outside my house and left a big loop of fibre cable/trunking (thick black cable with yellow stripe) tied to the pole. I assume this is for fttp....however everyone served by that pole can already get fttc.

Any ideas what bt might be upto?

Maybe someone has managed to order FTTPoD?

No mention of fttp or fttpod on the availability checker. (Checked a few numbers an addresses on that pole)

If FTTC isn't very good in the area might be an FTTP overlay.

Could also be delivery of FTTP to a school or other public sector facility.

Lastly a leased line to a local business.

Most likely what Ignitionnet said, for a private business circuit.

Thanks for the replies.

The strange thing is that there is no businesses connected to the pole.....just residential addresses (i can see where the drops go).

Its possible that this is the first pole where the fibre appears from.undergrpund and will then be daisy chained further down the street to other poles and premises.....but they are all residential. (Its only a small village)

If VDSL2 speeds are sub 24 Mbps then may be FTTP infill, without an indication of the postcode involved its speculation

Possibly....but i doubt it. Its a 2nd hand car lot and they can already get the full 80/20 fttc if they wanted it
