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

Not sure if it's me but your links do not work.

Can you get your tape measure out and measure the new CSP please.

Links still seem to be valid but here's a different one

Exact CSP dimensions are 16 x 10 cm but mine was installed in 2017. No idea on the dimensions of the latest CSP.

Going for our 'Government approved walk' yesterday I noticed new FTTP equipment on some BT poles and new manholes down this lane on the far end of our village smile , using the BT checker for the properties near there and None are enabled for FTTP yet only on Demand available at a silly cost.

Will the whole village/ area be enabled or will it go live in stages ?.

Can be weeks or months between some parts appearing and going live, due to how easy it is for some teams to carry on working

If a village is one of the named fibre villages then generally you see various phases, but for some it all almost goes live at the same time.

Unlikely anyone installing the kit will know the full story and even at higher levels things happen that change timelines all too often.

Thanks Mr S .
I will keep an eye on the checkers.

What I will do in the mean time is to install some more sockets in our covered enclosed porch (our porch is an area in the house where the consumer units and electric meter are also our BT landline and my DSL modem ) for the equipment and also first fit some plywood to the area were the CSP and ONT, my 16 port network switch and hardware firewall. (it's easier to screw things to the plywood then drilling and plugging the wall each time smile )

Do we know what size the new ONT and CSP are ?.

Trying to make some room for the ONT.

If a new Fibre/Phone cable is pulled in (remember it's coming straight into the porch, so no CSP !), Would the ONT have to be next to the Master Socket ?.

In an ideal world I would like them to be about 900mm apart and to make a neat cable job the phone cable would need to be 1500mm long to the master socket from the end of the dual cable end.

Is that doable ?.

Are you thinking the engineer will not install a CSP because the ducting comes up in the porch? I don't know the answer to this but will be interested to find out what the experts think.

I was advised by BTOR it would possibly go straight into the ONT so no need for a CSP.
