I've mentioned before on GKZ that when the common fibre in the ground was installed around where I live, the number of water pipes damaged that caused subsequent leaks was pretty impressive. Some are still leaking 2 years later 🙄

I've never regretted doing all of this work on my own fibre install:

Thank you Yutani. Long story short, it didn't go ahead today, not sure that it will/can. The lead tech said they couldn't use the existing cat5e cable that plugged in externally to the VDSL termination point and that I would need to get an electrician in to see what my options were in respect to getting the fibre to where the patch panel is located. As it's the ground floor of a double story house built on a concrete pad I think I'm between a rock and a hard place. :-(

You dont necessarily need fibre to the patch panel, if you have two or more outlets in the lounge you can have the ONT there and use the Cat5e to and from the PP

Sorry I've tried a couple of times to upload a couple of pics with no success. I'll bow out now, thanks to all who have tried to help. I'll focus on trying to improve my current VDSL download speed which has plummeted from around a reliable 25 Mbps to around 9.5 but I see there is another thread on that topic so I'll pop over there. cheers

Here are a couple of pics. The first showing the current cable run inside the house, the second how the cat5e cable plugs into the external VDSL termination point. The green conduit is buried and runs to the teleco access point on the road. The lead tech said they couldn't use the existing cable as it might not have enough draw. There is no conduit internal to the house. The cable runs through holes drilled into the house framing. The distance from the external connection to the patch panel is about 25 meters give or take. The tech said they would also need to replace the external green conduit that is above the ground with either white or grey in case they get audited - which would be interesting because the external termination point is behind an aircon unit (the white pipes in the second picture).

What is on the other side of that wall where the external demarc is?

 

 

 

Could you bring the Cat5 through there, and put the ONT there as well, then use that Cat5 to get the signal from the ONT back to the patch panel?

Yeah that large room where the VDSL demarc is, I assume thats the lounge? and I assume that is where your sofa currently is, but it may move?

How did you get the green conduit under the paved area?

 

I am planning to drive a 32mm waste pipe under my 1m wide path. This should allow for easy feeding of the green conduit by Chorus/Downer.
