Re: Cityfibre ... arghhhh

The quality of these installations is going to be a major problem moving forwards.

I've had FTTP installed in Hampshire by a new kid on the block and their installation engineers made 5 visits to get the link between the pole and distribution box inside the property to work. Bend radius mistakes, poor quality connectors, poor plastic housings on the outside, etc.

None of this is going to last 15 years, unlike our existing copper circuit which we have had no issues with for over 35 years.
