Was wondering if it is possible to get UFB connected to a property owned by someone else? Is it simply a case of getting their consent? Will the LFC do this?

We live in a rural area, far enough out that I don't think we'll ever get UFB, but have a neighbour that may soon be able to get UFB.  Would it be possible to get a connection installed at their place? (Which I could then setup a wireless link to my place appox. 3.5km line-of-sight!)

Haha... kids aye!

I suspect that your best bet here is to talk to your neighbour and get their consent and buy-in.  They will almost certainly need to authorise you explicitly to organise any kind of work regarding a connection going in at their property.

You will need to get consent but you can do it.

We do this for clients a bit - get DSL at their premises and billed to us.

Thats the kind of answer I was hoping for! Thought it must have been do-able. Thanks!

Not hard at all.

With UFF (not sure about other LFCs) there is an extra form to fill-in. Quite common with businesses who lease premises and the license-to-install needs to be signed off by the owner.

Could this be a case for the multiple services through one ONT? It would save on metering one connection to two users (ie the local one and the OP)
