    New telgraph poles and fibre optic cabling 11th Oct 19 at 1:16 PM
    Superfast West Yorkshire and York is delivering faster, more reliable broadband across the region.


    Rather than broadband being delivered through the copper route, the new, faster broadband speeds are delivered by fibre optic cabling.


    I have seen the engineers working in the area and some signs saying they will be erecting new telegraphs poles.
    Will all the wires up to the houses be replaced? Not sure if they are just replacing old telegraph poles or adding to the numbers so that there will be fewer cables sharing each conection.

    The BT OR rollout is as below guess it would be much the same .
    At least this is how they FTTPd my local area last year.




    Optical Cabling from the exchange fed underground .
    Up the pole and terminates .
    If you then decide to pay for FTTP the line from the pole to the house is replaced with optical cable with standard phone cable on top .
    Phone cable goes to master socket for phone line .
    Optical Cable into the house to a box . Ethernet Cable from box to the router .Both require a powerpoint .

    Fibre to the Cabinet increases basic broadband speeds by connecting powerful fibre optic cable to the cabinet, then copper wires to your home or business.


    They have put in a few new telegraph poles, so maybe those houses get a more direct, a connection not share with others.

    For my area as said it was optical cable back to the exchange for FTTP .
    Cabling goes as far as the nearest pole and removes the copper cable slowdowns .


    At present in my small cul de sac only two on FTTP all the others on the old fibre to the cabinet then copper wire .


    FTTP
    The future is Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), where pure fibre optic cables connect you straight to the exchange.


    150 amd 300 meg services .


    Looks like the service in the OP is FTTC upgrades as opposed to the new FTTP upgrades .
