I'm about to embark on some major works on the ground floor of my house. The walls and floors will be coming up so it is the perfect time to prepare for FTTH so it can be installed with the minimum clutter on the walls.
I have the space under the stairs in the same area which is where modems, routers, NTE's etc... will hopefully end up. I've found a developers guide for Openreach and they talk about preparing the house with duct 25/17. It doesn't really say much about what else is needed. Am I wrong in guessing the "blowing" process will send a fibre from outside to the point inside where the duct terminates? Will observing the minimum bend radius be sufficient? And where to find this ducting.... nothing seems to come up on searches.
Is this ducting what blown tubing would then be fed through by Openreach so they could then blow through a fibre through to the final termination point? Could I get my hands on any of this tube if this is how it is done?
Otherwise do I run my own fibre which termination and fibre type should I use? Ideally I would drill through to the external side of the house and coil a metre or two inside a PVC weatherproof housing. This all has to do with the termination into the BT modem and which type of fibre they would splice when they finally dig outside.
Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated, cheapest solutions that leave BT to the kit but have the same result of less stuff on the walls would be best.
