Hi, I dont think the OP intends for the ETP to not be on the outside of the house, the question is, can the leadin from the street come up through the slab and access the ETP from behind (ie from within the wall), the feed out to the ONT would be similar but obviously not go via the slab but via a conduit up into the wall and off to the ONT.

 

In my view there is no problem with doing this, what may be an issue is sharing a hole in the slab with the water main. Technically I dont see an issue with water and fibre sharing a hole in close proximity, however the plumbing regulations may.

@EnableFibreBroadband: Hi there, thanks for looping us into the convo - sorry for the late reply! It's a Government requirement that we have ETPs installed on the outside of the house, as we need to be able to quickly and easily access the ETP to reinstate the connection in the event of outage. It's also safer for our techs when completing installs. Hope that helps! Thanks, the Enable team

 

 

 

could you please link to where this is stated because its at odds with what i have been told by a few chorus staff members.

Jase985: Hi Jase, you can find the details on page 47 of this document: https://enable.net.nz/assets/Reference-Offers/Enable-UFB-Bitstream-Services-Operations-Manual.pdf We cannot speak on behalf of Chorus. Thanks, the Enable team

 

 

 

 

Cyril7: Hi, we can confirm that yes, the fibre can run up an internal wall - so long as it terminates in an external position i.e. it must then exit the wall. Thanks, the Enable team

Hi Enable, you said the following "it's a Government requirement that we have ETPs installed on the outside of the house". could you please provide where the Government has stipulated this is the case?
