Quite a bit of orphan plant could be found around here and some was reused.
Contractors for VM dug up the close a friend of mine lives in - Hedge End, Southampton. I assume ducts were installed, as major trench work, but then contractors left, no cables/coax installed. Its a small close, and the alternative is VDSL2 services maxing out at 30mbps from openreach.
Very strange to spend some money and not finish off. But that's VM through and through!
