I have had Fiber for 6 months now.

After I was connected UFF cleaned up around the house and covered all the holes and re planted grass seed which has grown over nicely very nice job!.

What was left at the end of the driveway I was less than impressed with...




After a few months of calling the Contractors finally came back and now have this...




Anyone else has an experience like this? did it take forever to get resolved?

It has been about 1-2 months since the "cleanup" I have barely been home so have not called to follow this up.

that looks like it would be very tempted for some twat to walk past and attempt to rip it out or snip it..


seems odd they would leave it hanging out there...

Was thinking the same.
I would log a ticket with the ISP and get them to have this tidied up.

Hello Mate

Those are single way Ribbonet drop off points, which will be used by your neighbours when they decide to get UFB installed. The reason why they haven't buried them is so the installers can find the drop offs without having to dig them up to locate them. Not sure why they left them so long though, and they should have really buried them so just the ends are sticking out of the ground.

Oh dear, I hope some twat doesn't cut the off 10cm below ground level and spread some grass seed around ;)

For my street which is covered by Enable, I noticed they put a little dust cap on the end of the thin orange lead-in and bury everything back into the ground, and once that's done they put up a Enable fibre it's here sign on top of it.
And when civil boys needs to put in ETP for you just outside your house they will dig it up and clean it, put a joiner onto it for the rest of the lead-in.

D1NZ: For my street which is covered by Enable, I noticed they put a little dust cap on the end of the thin orange lead-in and bury everything back into the ground, and once that's done they put up a Enable fibre it's here sign on top of it.

There are a couple of "pipes" sticking out of the ground on the other side of the street (Chorus area) with electrical tape over the ends to stop dust, water etc from getting in there, but there are no signs or anything.

However, work hasn't officially finished in my street yet (it hasn't officially started yet either but let's not let facts get in the way!)
