Hi Guys,

A while back I called UFF regarding the exact planned location of the street-side fibre DP's, so we could run an additional green plastic conduit for the fibre lead-in as part of a new home build.

The word came back that I should aim for the grey DP on the right hand side of the driveway and we laid two conduits  into a new trench, one for the copper and one for the future fibre service. Months later, fibre DP's are being installed along the street, however they are now on the opposite side of the driveway as the conduit.

Hopefully, when the service is available to install, they can underbore the driveway on a bit of an angle and join up with the existing duct around 4m on the other side of the driveway. Does anyone think this will be an issue? All the other installs I've seen have exclusively used new trenches.

Around here in Palmy (Chorus area) they seem to bore under areas that have a hard surface (concrete, asphalt etc) and just trench in grass areas.

At the end of the day you don't really need to worry about it as even if they trench it will get reinstated anyway.

The reason I've asked is that the existing conduits travel directly to the patch panel I've had installed in the RHS of the garage. There's no easy route that can get to the panel from the LHS of the garage without some significant drilling through the walls and ceiling, and being a new house that is the last thing I want to do. Additionally, we've just finished the gardens on the LHS of the driveway. The tech's setting up the road-side equipment said that it's a separate team that deals with in the installs to the house, so they can't comment on whether underboring is possible.

I thought we'd done well to plan the conduits/ONT location etc. out before the build to save some issues later on, but oh well!

In that case they will be digging anyway. Having the fibre taken directly inside is not an option on residential installs. There must be an ETP. In theory, what you have done is great (it's how I would like to do it) but unfortunately it just isn't something they are willing to do.

Yes, you're right; if the conduit went straight up into the panel, then they'd no doubt refuse to install it.

What I mean is that both conduits we laid from the road-side leads to the existing location of the copper-ETP on the exterior of the building, which then has a separate conduit through to the inside wall and up into the patch panel inside the garage.
