We have Sky FTTP which comes via a fibre cable from the telegraph pole. In this street there are pavement sockets which I understand are from CityFibre. We got the Sky FTTP after these pavement sockets were installed and our setup does not involve them, just the telegraph pole. I’m not really clear on whether the current connection comes from Openreach or CityFibre.
We’re thinking of switching to Vodafone Full Fibre 100. If we do, how likely is it that they will be able to use the existing telegraph pole setup? It would be a huge win if they could as I’d really like to avoid going the pavement route as it would involve digging through the garden and possibly extra boxes on the wall etc.
A promotional letter came through the door recently which advertises the VF Full Fibre and says it’s “powered by CityFibre” which might be relevant.
Balanced 100/100 from CityFibre could be either overhead or underground, depends on the best/easiest method. Give the choice I'd opt to run overhead if there was a chamber close to the telegraph pole. If you have a chamber (toby box) just outside of your property it may just be easier to cut a slit trench (done right it can be invisible). No matter which method there will only be one box on your outside wall - existing infrastructure will be used if it's servicable.
Sky will be using Openreach, and Vodafone will likely use Cityfibre. (that seems to be their choice when both are available)
So you will probably get a new fibre and ONT, but whether they will use the poles like Openreach or underground is uncertain.
Do you know if any neighbours have CityFibre, and how their install was done?
