Broadband Update September 2020

Community Fibre

In our last update on July 28th we gave some details on the survey stage of the Henbury broadband scheme. You will see from the following message, received from Openreach yesterday, that surveying is almost complete and the "build " phase will soon begin!

Following our email a few weeks ago we thought we'd get back in touch as we near completion of the survey stage, then we'll soon be releasing work instructions to our contractors to commence the 'build' phase.

You may be interested to know that during the build stage of an FTTP installation, the fibre cable is run from a head end in the exchange to an aggregation node that takes capacity to a local area. It then connects to a splitter node using a tree and branch approach. From the splitter nodes fibre cables are fed to the new connectorised blocks which can be located overhead on telegraph poles or installed in underground footway boxes. The connectorised block then feeds individual premises.

Kind regards
Paul Harland, Community Liaison Manager
