Just wanted to Post a great Enable install. I'm down a long drive with a total of four houses off the driveway so I expected issues. They came and did a scope on a Thursday and planned to dig a channel up the asphalt driveway, bury the duct and run around the edge of the garden to get to our garage. Luckily the garage is exactly where I wanted it as I have a 42U cabinet in the corner with some structured cabling etc. (No I don't need a 42U but why go smaller and run out of room later - And I can lock small children in there).
He said they'd be ready to install the following Thursday and I doubted they'd be able to book the civil sub contractors with only 6 working days to go but had vague hope. Amazingly they turned up on the Tuesday and cut and dug the ditch - Buried the conduit including running a length to the neighbors boundary for the future and covered the ditch over with gravel. The next day they dug it to the garage wall and did a pretty tidy job without making a mess of the garden and on Thursday the installer had it blown and ran the last 10m into the cabinet and livened it all up and it is all working perfectly first time.
There is only 1 foot of "exposed" fibre (in plastic duct) to the box on the wall and a week later they came back and re-sealed the driveway. The driveway wasn't perfect anyway as each neighbor had earthquake repairs on their last 5m of concrete aesthetic driveway redone which required some cutting and patching of the asphalt so the new strip down the edge is just joining together two existing patches into one continuous.
On the negative side fibre was installed up to five houses away from me 3 years ago and I've had to wait that long for them to do the next build out in my area. We had moved up the road about six months prior to the first phase and our old house got the fibre then, I would have happily swapped our bigger newer house for the old one just to get fibre but the wife wasn't so inclined.
