Hi all
So the ducting etc is now going into my street, lovely big hole out the front of the house... Is there any benefit in me requesting the fibre run to at least an ONT while they're doing this?  Or too complicated process-wise/no extra benefit?

Thanks

I don't think an ISP could request a install if fibre is not layed and live

(Chorus perspective)

You maybe able to arrange for the microducting to be installed to your house (Ask the site suoervisor) but the budgets for build and for a service connection are held by differnt parts of the Network provider (Service connection requests can only be trigered by a RSP) and the realy big issue is of damage to any service fibre during the installation of rest of the communial network + testing of the mcroducts etc , and dont forget the installation of the local backhaul fibre/s to the exch etc and its testing before a connection can be made live.

Are you meaning the fibre run or the ducting? Fibre is only blown during the install process.

Thanks - I'm in no particular rush, just thought it might be of assistance to Chorus et al to do it while they're already digging around.  Looks like it would actually just be overly complicated...
