He said it most likely wouldn't be 5 poles and he said poles would be cheaper. Depending on the cost, if I can bring it to a reasonable level by doing the ducting myself I will. I have a couple friends who have the machinery but will have to see!
Poles will definitely be cheaper by a fair whack, I think people say about £600 a pop but some will argue its less than that and some will say its more. I personally think you're talking more than £5K for Openreach to do the ducting but thats me doing a quick calculation on the back of a fag packet and I'm being conservative on that estimate. Hopefully someone with more experience will jump in and advise.
Normally its a max fibre span of around 67m on poles, I was told not that long ago that it had increased to 75m (by a contractor who does surveys for Openreach) but would still work on 67m as a worse case scenario.
If you are seriously thinking of doing some of it yourself make sure you discuss that with the surveyor.
Hope all goes well on Monday
