330/30 with unlimited usage I'd suspect

Truly unlimited usage on the 330/30 package. Otherwise I wouldn't have touched Fluidone with a bargepole if they had any sort of bandwidth limits.

Looks like the service will be going live very soon. Everything except the jointing work is complete, and this was scheduled in for w/c 15th May using local Openreach Engineers. However i got a call from Openreach yesterday saying that the order has been classed as an "escalated install" and that they will be sending a team of Engineers from NW England to the Highlands to start the jointing work next week - working over the weekend if necessary. This is expected to take 7-10 days and I hope to have the service live by 19th May. I suspect Fluidone prodded Openreach to stop faffing around and speed things up.

Kudos to Openreach smile

Woo hoo its getting tantalizingly close!

Had the Customer Splice Point (CSP) and internal cabling (inc ONT) installed today. Just work at the exchange remains which should be completed by Friday.

Quick question wrt CSP: the fibre cable is exposed externally for a few cm's, should I be concerned (ie shoddy work) or is it an armoured cable?

Internal entry point: (fibre cable goes off to the left)

ONT unit - installed next to BT master socket:

I asked the Openreach bod not to install a battery backup unit (BBU) since its a data only service, for 3 years at least. Will continue to use copper (eurrggh) for voice service, may look into getting a FVA service once I'm able to go to a native FTTP service. In any case the LAN ports on the ONT are disabled in the event of a power cut.

Nope that looks like a neat and tidy job to me. The fibre lead in is ruggedised with kevlar strands surrounding it, it is designed to be externally wall mounted.

Have only done the fit on a couple of these, and in both cases it had traffic on the fibre when I got there and was live when I fired it up ?

Thanks. The Engineer was supposed to install just the CSP this morning, however to save time he said he would do the internal cabling as well. However its not live yet, PON light on ONT is off. I suspect once the exchange work is completed, he will come back to ensure the service is up & running.

Yep saw that, and the LOS light is lit.

And get traffic to it I suspect, I guess there was some hitch somewhere.

Fingers crossed, keep us posted.

Sorry another question wrt external works: even though its Openreach property would I be allowed to paint over the plastic covers? It appears Openreach now use a different shade of grey for their covers. The bottom cover was installed in 2008 when the house was built and covers the phone line entry. I guess ideally the bottom cover should be replaced with the same colour as the top covers but that would probably mean digging up the lawn as I believe the cover goes below ground. The colour mismatch wouldn't matter so much if the fibre & copper entry points were at the back or at the side of the house...but they're at the front!!

Also I intend to cover the cut-out hole next to the centre screw (just below CSP) with some waterproof duct tape as water ingress into that hole could cause problems.

Cheers

Paint over it, you'll not get in any bother. Before you paint squirt a little blob of mastic into said hole and paint over the whole shebang when dry - sorted.
