Did a delivery in the broadway area today, most of the poles i saw had the fibre signs and nodes on them, they are going up quick. I keep forgetting not all areas will be on the roadwork map as existing ducting can be used

Is there an easy way to find out if my local pole has it installed ? - Should they all have signs on them ? - Not really sure how to tell or what the nodes are supposed to look like.

Would it be obvious by looking ?

You'll definitely notice the Fiber node. The biggest giveaway is the cable coming from it. It will have a yellow band around it near the top.

Thanks. Just had a look out of the window at ours and there is a square black box almost at the top of it but no sign of anything yellow. That might have always been there, not sure.

Wonder how long it will take them to do my pole. Not even a bike can get down my alleyway. I'm sure they'll just throw it up on a ladder haha.

Aye mines has that too in my garden. (Up in scotland) So it must be a pretty universal thing.

...another local here.... does any one know plans for streets supplied underground eg have the agreed with Virgin to use their ducts ? On the face of it that sounds a simple and good idea which is why it may not happern lol. OT I have seen a couple of surveys on my street which has made me wonder if they plan to site a new cab on it.

I thought that this could be a Proof Of Concept test for the area on the way to Heysham where new cabs have been installed on the main street near coop.

Hi - About 6 months ago they where changed and expanded. Pretty sure it was Morrisons as I have been on the watch for them since been given the contract.
