Re: Specs for new roll out


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
My networking gear is located just off the hallway not on an external wall. When we built the extension I ran in some 15mm conduit from this room to the external wall just in case we ever got FTTP.

Ideally the coax and power will need to run through this.

Is there any links to pictures of what they install so I can ascertain if this would work?

Other option is to run the fibre all the way in and have the converter inside, but I've no idea if they'll do that.

I have no idea But they will put the wall box anywhere you like.

Basically this on the outside https://postimg.org/image/yv0n2sh2t/
This on the inside (with the NTE5 too) https://postimg.org/image/clmpw8lmd/

And then within a week you'll be ripping it out again as you will only get 3mbps peak times anyway.

Or maybe not - it's a lottery but with a 28 day money back guarantee at least

Thanks, I am concerned with the issues, but things do seem to have improved, and being a completely new area with full fttp ones hopes it will work well.

Those pictures are for the hybrid network, not FTTP.

FTTP terminates on a different box on the outside of the property, the fibre then routes to a powered internal box where it is converted to coaxial.

There's also a coaxial run in between the internal and external terminate boxes to allow power to be drawn from the internal and supply the external.

No NTE 5, no copper to terminate on one.

Sorry I missed the bit where FTTP was mentioned.

Found this which shows some pictures of a VM FTTP install done very recently.
