On top of an external testing point being provided by a CSP, and Mr.S’s suggestion, there has been a higher than acceptable amount of field fit connectors failing (the SC end fitting into the ONT.

Yep my install was done in 2017.

Are the latest CSPs smaller as there's no need to coil spare fibres anymore?

These are guts of my CSP

Same size and the coiling remains, since it also means there is usually some spare fibre if the first splice is not a good one.

Oh joy. Guess what's going into mine.

Building better networks, not just faster ones.

I had one pack up three days after fitting it, and the initial light loss reading was pukka ... like .3db difference from the reading at the CBT ...

I was never a fan anyway ... splice or be damned I say

Same here, do we know what the cause of failure is?

I do the like fact though on my install there is nothing extra visible from outside the property to what has been there for 30 years for the telephone wire. Unless you came inside the property and saw the ONT you'd not know fibre was installed. Seems a cleaner install and less likely to get tampered with or be affected by UV and the elements.

Fingers crossed I'm not in that higher than acceptable percentage group smile

Ok Thanks.

Will someone from BTOR come and do a survey ? , I have registered my interest with them.

Do Openreach provide the ONT ?.

Did I read that the New ONT are only One port and have No battery back up which could mean a UPS for power cuts (which we tend to get often).

Stage one (non appointed) will be done to provide service to a CSP at the property......

Stage two (on the date of install you’ll be given) will provide a single port ONT and no BBU, to an agreed location WITHIN REASON.

Someone from OpenReach will visit the property to check the route between the DP and where the CSP will be located. If clear they will run the fibre to the CSP.

OpenReach provide the ONT when running the fibre from the CSP to the inside of the property.

The ONT's are all 1 port yes.

Battery backup units are no longer provided by OpenReach.
It's up to the service provider to give a UPS to vulnerable customers where appropriate, such as the elderly and in areas with a poor mobile signal.

I want the CSP in the porch so may need an appointment.

O.R. have my contact details will they get in touch before this work starts ?.

Sounds good, I think we qualify for both counts, so hope to get a free one.
