We have heard on this forum for probably a year now that CSP's is the correct way for engineers to install fttp
We heard about a year ago that OpenReach had started using CSP's again with the inside out method, yes that is correct.
It actually started in June 2019.
OpenReach stagger their training across their many training centres in the UK.
We had a pandemic nearly a year ago that put a halt to many planned changes.
Comments like this are just wrong...
That route isn’t practical, the line would need to go to ground level first externally so the CSP...

As pointed out though, the cable would need to go into a CSP at ground level first,
On their patch that might be the case.
It isn't the case everywhere.
Inside out was trialled in a concept trial (very early) on a couple patches in June 2019.
The trial didn't even officially launch until February 2020, a month before the pandemic.
It was extended to some other areas.
My install in August on a brownfield site used no CSP.
I've seen about a dozen installs done in my street the exact same way as recent as 2 weeks ago.
The engineers here haven't heard of it. That's both the new hires and a couple long term guys.
AFAIK it's still a trial deployment.
There has been no OpenReach briefings to say the trial is complete.
I see no problem advising people they may or may not need a CSP depending on the area they are in and if OpenReach are using the inside out method on their patch.
Insisting on every post that a CSP is needed is foolish, particularly with the number of posts we still see that have no CSP installed at all, including brownfield sites.
