Very interesting, so I expect that will be how they do it in our case.

Do you have any pics of how the fibre is terminated in the home? I expect it will be quite close to where it comes in and then to ethernet?

That telephone pole looks a bit worse for wear - I can remember about 40 years ago (I was about 6) when all the telephone poles were put up in our road one summer...

If you wrote as many words a day as I have been of late you would be more forgiving.
2 reviews in last week, one more in final stages, another 70% written.

http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre-cornwall/ has most of the pictures from the trip, with a short title to each image to help.

Just threw this up there, so not as pretty as it could be.

There's a pic of an ONT that has been used for FTTP trials here.

I think there's another one supplied now because there is a battery backup unit that's connected as well.

The blown fibre tube (as can be seen leaving the manifold in Mr.S's photo) will be provided to a Customer Splice Point, an external joint box, from here a ruggedised fibre will be run in to the ONTE.

The fibre blown through the tube actually has four separate fibres in it. It is blown from the fibre 'DP' from here spliced on to a designated fibre back to the splitter node. In the splitter, the feeds are split 32 ways.
