Yet another @chorusnz Fup on a basic Fiber install that should lats years but will in fact only last days

 

So this is how you get the fiber in to the building

 

Click to see full size

 

and then run it under the work bench like so

 

Click to see full size

 

then along the top of the work bench as follows

 

Click to see full size

 

then up the wall in the corner and along the wall up in to the celing space and as shown in the picture below

 

Click to see full size

 

enclosed in a bit of trunking where it got wedged in the lid of the trunking

 

Click to see full size

 

down the wall in the gap between the tilt slab clipped to the Sealant with clips and in to the ont 

 

Click to see full size

 

leave just enough slack should you need it in the future for a make shift repair.

 

 

 

@chorusnz Explain!

 

This is awesome quality of workmanship that you guys have here!

You gotta look at the positives - the ONT has power.

It literally only just has power as the plug only just fits in the gap between the ont and the powerpoint alongside the patch lead that has been jammed in there

This is an example of an excellent install done by @sbiddle in the Chorus shirt he got from the op shop. I'm sorry that @ChorusNZ has to now clean up after him yet again...

Did you check their ID cards? Or did they have tools? looks look a gorilla terminated it

 

I would not have let them leave the house with that quality. I am surprised that the interwebs are not falling all over the floor.

Hey dont be so mean! They are just working to a budget guys. Geez, can't have a tidy install AND keep within the spending limits.


.....seriously though, I hate that twin fibre stuff. So so delicate, especially in suspended ceilings. At that curve around the front of the work bench! Just asking to be squashed.
The only appropriate action to fix this is immediately sack the contractor.

Better to install the ONT right behind the outside wall and do the rest of the wiring accordingly by ethernet cable. This results in less room for a 'fiber field installation' within the house. ;-)

Hi, I really hope @chorusnz takes a peek at this one, it is very poor workmanship, and just asking to fail, and who will be expected to pay for repairs, my guess is the customer.

 

Clearly whoever installed this has little training or understanding of the relatively simple tasks the job entails, I hope they are either sent off for further training after a right royal bollocking or sent down the road.

I wonder if these terrible installs can be taken to council and then have the technician followed up with and stripped of their certifications. If I was a residential sparkie and had unshielded, un clipped wiring running around a basement below 2M I'd get sacked on the spot and possibly even have the boss fined for that. This should be illegal work and anyone doing such should be penalized and if they are an import SENT HOME.

Well the gpon led is lit so probably it does.

But with that sheath exposing the fibre within just above the ont I suspect service may soon be interupted.
