Full Fibre


[link to this post]
 
How is the internet connection delivered to each property?

Is this over Ethernet or is a fibre optic cable installed into each property?

Fibre to the building, then gigabit ethernet to each flat

If is a single dwelling, the fibre terminates on a box in/on the house. There were some photos around somewhere. An old openreach presentation has some pictures on slides 29/30 and 50.

Kitz has some pictures as well where you can see the fibre inside the ONT http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php?topic=10561.0

I thought that in a block of flats a fibre would be terminated in each flat and the ONT fixed to the wall. This is why it is harder to do as each flat has to be cabled and entered thruogh the wall, this comes under the landlords responsibility.

I was not under the impression that ethernet would be used to each Flat.

Hyperoptic seems to be delivering fibre to the building, Openreach preferring fibre to the individual premises. It will be inetresting to see whether there are any significant performance differences between the two - eg you'd imagine FTTB would struggle with bandwidth in larger buildings if many users opt for some of the higher speeds.

Hi NewLondoner,

Our network team do monitor the usage within a building, so if it appears that usage is nearing capacity we can increase the bandwidth back haul accordingly..

Kind regards

"Openreach preferring fibre to the individual premises" really?

Now in their plans for flats this may be the case, but not as a general UK wide statement. Not sure if Openreach has any live MDU deployments yet.
