Overhead FTTP

If the duct is passable yes theyll use it. They pull in a dedicated fibre mini duct and blow the threads through that as needed.
So just the small matter of getting an ethernet cable to the phone socket in the house to have fibre the full length....

What about where the phone cable was laid from the manhole in the road outside my house to the point where it comes up out of the ground in the garage?

Tell me something. Are old BT copper phone lines underground put in ducts or not? I mean isit much of a job to pull fibre through to replace them??
If they do use it its not mandatory, neighbour had underground copper 10-15 years ago across our fields and they've had to run fibre overhead as didnt duct the copper line :X3:

Youll have fibre to the cab in all likelyhood by the sounds, and best hope the cab is under half a mile away !

I had occasion to go up the cwm this afternoon and I found contractors busy stringing up fibre on the poles.
For some reason they are starting at the top and working back towards the exchange.
They were complaining about the rotten weather, been raining all day here, and they were trying to work through the old village peat diggings.
Hard enough to do anything there in a dry summer, let alone a wet winter.
The 21st C approaches!

OpenReach have been swarming round our village this week. Meant to be having FTTP by the end of the month. Quite an operation and all paid for by a grant apparently. We have a very on the ball Parish chairman. Looking forward to having 1000mbs speeds!

The Doe Show has been a firm fixture in the agricultural, construction and groundcare industries calendars since 1960. Held during the first week of February every year, the Doe Show attracts huge crowds to our head office at Ulting, Essex and is by far the largest agricultural, construction and groundcare machinery dealer in the UK, possibly Europe.

Given the current pandemic and restrictions we find ourselves under, it would be irresponsible to hold our 2021 Doe Show in the physical sense. However, we are delighted to be able to bring the 61st Doe Show to our customers, albeit in a different way than we have over the past 60 years. Finding new ways of engaging with our customers excites us and we are...
