Hi could anyone tell me does the fibre to your home come from the fttc cabinet ? or is it a separate entity from the exchange or something, many thanks.
Yep if it’s Openreach it will originate from the OLT (Optical Line Terminal) in the handover / headend exchange (not necessarily the local copper/ADSL exchange mind) to an Aggregation Node. This happens to be the same point at which FTTC cabinets have their connection.FTTP comes from the exchange to your home.
Setup is usually from the Fibre spine in the exchange known as the ODF (Optical Distrubution Frame), to a splicer, then to a smaller splicer, to a CBT (Connectorised Block Terminal) from here to a grey CSP (Customer Service Point) located on the wall of your home and then to the ONT (Optical Network Terminal)
Hope this helps.
