So it looks like the UFB upgrade is well underway along our street in Palmy. I thought I would prepare our home for the install although I’m not quite sure how to proceed.
The existing wiring seems pretty good, Cat5 & 5e in a star config from a reasonably central cupboard where my master splitter, modem and router currently sit.
The issue for me is the distance from the current telecom conduit and demarc point at the end of the garage to the router. I have estimated that at least 30m of cable will be required.
Should I run Cat6 from the current demarc to the network cupboard and have the ONT installed inside the garage on the wall next to the demarc? Or, should I try and get a roll of fibre cable so that the ONT could then be installed next to my router where my adsl modem is currently? I’m assuming any interior fibre I run can be spliced with the cable from the street…..
edit:formatting went nuts!
