Don’t know if correlation = causation,  but ever since we got fibre installed there seems to be a nightly thumping noise coming from the direction of the ETP. Always seems to happen at a similar time around 6 -7 pm. Happens most, but not all nights.  Sounds like a thud of something hitting the side of the house. 

we have had fibre for nearly two years and it’s been ongoing since day one. 

 

any clues?

 

 

 

TIA.

Fibre installer stuck in the wall or living in the wall?

You're trying to download more data than your fibre pipe can handle and it cannot fit through the hole.  Upgrade your plan.

It could be a conduit or similar that is is screwed down tight with no movement expanding/contracting with temperature change through the day.

Nope, don’t have anything like that.

 

 

I knew I should have added “serious answers only” I knew this topic would bring out the creative responses 😂

Are you sure there is no backdraft shutters in your extraction fan units?

This is exactly what the bathroom backdraft shutter sounds like in our house (It's built into the extraction unit), how often depends on the direction of the wind.
