I am contemplating upgrading to fibre. My issue is in the vicinity of where BT would install it by default (immediately opposite the entry point into the wall) there is no power. It would also not be practical in terms of connecting to my existing data cabling. I also do not want cabling on show, no matter how "flat" and "flexible" the connectorised fibre cable is.
If I was to install a straight-ish run (no nasty bends) of flexi conduit/ducting buried in the stud wall from the anticipated entry point to the location of where I would like the ONT and also a drawstring, would the Openreach engineer likely be happy to draw their fibre through it and install my ONT where I want it? What diameter ducting should I look to install? I was thinking around 20mm diamater, should this be wide enough to acommodate the connectorised fibre? Something like THIS
Also, my network centre where all my data cabling around the house terminates is in the loft which is where I'd like the ONT. I've read somewhere that Openreach won't let their staff work in lofts, which I can understand, but my loft is boarded out with ladders and lights and you can stand up straight. Would that still preclude them from working in the loft?
I know a lot of this depends on who you get on the day..
