So Lightsource on behalf of OpenReach have been installing FTTP to the poles in my area and last week they finally came down my road, however they skipped over the pole connecting my house and moved onto the next!
The next day I asked the guy working on the next pole whether they just missed mine by accident, and apparently they skipped it because it's a 'D' Pole and they aren't allowed to touch them - he didn't give me any more info than that - no schedule for if or when it will be replaced.
Now this wouldn't be too bad but yesterday I walked past a different pole further down my street (installed before mine part) and that has FTTP equipment on it and a big red D nailed to it too which contradicts him somewhat.
Has anyone had this happen to them - is there a timeline for replacing the poles marked with the dreaded 'D' ? If they do replace it will they retrofit the FTTP equipment to it ?
I checked the plate nailed to my pole and it as 6/20 stamped out and the letters A,B,F,G stamped out too - I'm guessing that means what's wrong with it ? Perhaps the other D pole with FTTP has different letters, I'll have to check.
