If you've recently signed up for a full fibre broadband connection, or are considering it, you might be wondering what to expect during the installation process.
In this comprehensive fibre broadband installation guide, we'll take you through the entire journey of getting your home connected to the lightning-fast world of full fibre (LINK).
Full fibre broadband, also known as Fibre to the Premises (FTTP), is the latest and fastest technology for delivering broadband to your home.
Unlike FTTC, also known as traditional broadband, which often relies on older copper cables, full fibre uses ultra-thin strands of glass or plastic (fibres) to transmit data at the speed of light.
This results in an ultrafast and reliable connection which is perfect for streaming, gaming, remote work, and much more.
The first step is to book your installation with your chosen internet service provider (ISP).
They will arrange a convenient date and time for the installation team to visit your home.
You'll typically receive an email or text message with all the details just to confirm this.
On the day of your installation, a technician will perform a site survey.
They will assess the best route to run the fibre optic cable from the nearest distribution point on the new fibre network which can connect to your home.
Depending on the network infrastructure, your line will either come underground or overhead via a telegraph pole.
During the external cabling phase, the technician will carefully drill a very small and precise hole in your external wall.
This hole is a key part of the installation process as it allows the ultra-thin fibre optic cable to be fed from the outside of your home to the inside, ensuring a secure connection.
Rest assured that this hole is exceptionally small, designed to be discreet and unobtrusive.
This will then be covered with a small plastic cabinet that will house any excess fibre optic cable keeping it all neat and tidy.
After the external cabling is in place, the technician will install the necessary equipment inside your home.
This includes the ONT (Optical Network Terminal), which is a small device that converts the optical signal received from the fibre into a digital signal that can be used by your devices.
This will then also connect to your router which will then be able to give you your internet access.
With everything in place, the technician will thoroughly test the connection to ensure it's working correctly.
They will also configure your router, set up your Wi-Fi network, and provide you with any necessary login information.
Once the installation is complete, you're ready to enjoy the benefits of full fibre broadband(LINK)!
You can connect all your devices, stream movies in 4K, have lag-free online gaming sessions, and work from home with lightning-fast broadband speeds.
Getting a full fibre broadband installation is a smooth and efficient process designed to bring a high-speed connection to your doorstep.
From the initial booking to the final configuration, trained technicians ensure you have a reliable connection that will enhance your online experience.
Don't hesitate to reach out to your chosen ISP for more information and to book your installation. We look forward to welcoming you to the world of full fibre broadband!
Please note that not all fibre installations go like this and every network operator differs in their method. This is how we here at Netomnia bring ultrafast broadband to your home.
Remember to check with your local ISP for specific details about the installation process in your area.
