Timeline of my installation:
  • June 17,  Virgin Media (VM) started FTTH works in Chatteris.
  • 23 October 17, VM started trenching in Farriers Gate outside Glebelands school.
  • 24 October 17Letter pushed through the door from VM
  • 25 October 17, Trenching and Toby installed.
  • 26 October 17, Trench tarmacked and construction barriers removed.
  • 5 November 17, I buried 20mm conduit from Toby to house wall and included a draw cord.
  • 26 Nov 18, Cabinet AF0503 made live.
  • 1 Feb 18, Virgin Postcode Checker now shows service available in my street.
  • 4 Feb 18, Ordered VIVID 200 package for installation on Friday 23 Feb 18 between 13:00 – 16:00. Went through to the Virgin Media shop in Peterborough looking for some form of promotion or deal to reduce costs, this didn’t happen, in fact they suggested I could save money ordering in shop as they would waive the installation and F-Secure costs, this was incorrect as the online booking information has these as free, also they wanted £25 up front, £20 activation fee and £5 which would be returned once the service was active, online it is £20 only activation, so I booked online, as an aside, if I had ordered in the shop my statutory rights to cancel is reduced from 14 to 10 days protection which you get when booking online.
  • 11 Feb 18, received two e-mails, the first containing e-sign contract, the other was what to expect on the day of installation.
  • 16 Feb 18, received mobile call from Callum of the Virgin Media installation team wanting to come and install a microduct from the Toby to my house, fit the Omnibox and blow the fibre from the street cabinet to the Omnibox, this is done a week in advance of the engineers on the 23 Feb, I arranged for the following day to meet them as I was 180 miles away! (this part of the process was not known to me and came out of the blue, I assumed it would be a ‘one hit’ visit).
  • 17 Feb 18, James from the installation team rang to cancel as Callums son had a fall and was needed at home, as the install is a two man job I returned his call and rearranged for Monday 19 Feb after 16:00.
  • 19 Feb 18, James & Callum turned up at the appointed time to install the microduct, fibre and Omnibox.

toby

The guys first photographed a laminated sheet showing my address, date and their names next to my open Toby, once this was done they threaded a black microduct pipe from the pavement Toby through the conduit I had previously laid to the house, the brown Omnibox was fixed to the wall with 4 screws and the microduct pipe clipped into place in the Omnibox,  at the Toby a coupling was installed transitioning from the green microduct to the black microduct.

The distance was measured from the Toby to the street cabinet (72.5 m), while the measuring was going on, compressed air was blown down the microduct from the house, this caused the yellow protective cap to be blown off the end of the green microduct in the cabinet, identifying which tube out of many,  as coming from my house.

In the cabinet a ‘fibre catcher’ was fitted, at the house end the fibre cassette containing 100m of  was fixed on a device which enabled the fibre to be blown into the duct until it was caught by the cabinet catcher.

At the cabinet, the fibre catcher was removed and a protective sleeve was fitted over the fibre and terminated in a connection, this connection was then plugged into a breakout panel in the cabinet, at the house end, the surplus fibre from the cassette was wrapped within the Omnibox and the end also terminated, once this was done, a reading was taken of light losses (-0.13db) to check they were in an acceptable range, the reading was photographed with the laminated sheet used earlier as proof of service in advance of the technical install scheduled on Friday 23 Feb 18.

Chatteris Fibre To The Home (FTTH) Story:

As part of Connecting Cambridgeshire Virgin Media and BT are rolling out super fast broadband.compare

Phased civils started in June 2017 and by 12 January 2018 first subscriber activated.

Omnibox
12 January 2018 first Virgin Media Omnibox I spotted in Chatteris, a friend did have his installed on 4th Jan 18 and they installed a white Omnibox.

I currently use TalkTalk Fibre to the Cabinet, this the same as BT Infinity, SKY, Plusnet etc, this means a fibre optic cable is brought from the local exchange to a street cabinet, from this the existing telephone copper cable is used for  broadband and phone, depending how close you are to the cabinet will determine how fast your broadband is, in may case, I get a maximum speed of 62.79Mbps download, 17.34Mbps Upload and a Ping time of 17.34ms which is probably the best I can get (using Speedtest 15/11/17 @ 18:00).

Diagram showing how Fibre To The Home (FTTH) is just that.

I was delighted when I saw that the Virgin Media cable enabling works was scheduled for installation  via Roadworks.org, bringing up to 300Mb speeds to Chatteris, this will give people an option, rather than be tied to telephone line provided services, so I thought I’d start this blog.

The infrastructure in my area was due to start on 4 August 17, expecting to last until the 14 August and I registered my interest in advance  using Cable My Street.

My roads infrastructure work was carried out very swiftly and with minimal mess considering the civil work required, the works was undertaken during school holidays to minimise any disruption, the crew were respectful of any request to get on and off the drive, also in my case I wanted the  ‘Toby’ to be in a particular position, this wasn’t a problem and on the pictures below you can see the original point marking has been crossed out, and the new position marked as a red box.

The latest update on advance planning is: FEN 16-28 Feb

Details on how the Virgin Media infrastructure is installed (for developers but a great resource) is HERE (large file) and a general guide used for another town scheme is HERE.

The system we are getting from Virgin uses RF over Glass, with the infrastructure being installed by John Henry Group. This comprises of a fibre optic cable laid in a trench which is blown through a microduct tube from the nearest cabinet to the home after your order is placed.

tube
Microbore tube showing fibre optic cable

microbore

The image above shows the three sorts of microduct which are being installed:

  • The wrapped Red and Green double tube is installed from the VMVH1 hub cabinets to the Level 3 (L3) street cabinets. Each tube has an Outside Diameter (OD) is 12mm one tube is used to transport 24 core fibre optic cable, the other bore is spare.
  • The single Red and Green has an OD of 8mm and carries 12 core fibre optic cable from the L3 cabinet to the Level 2 (L2) distrubution board. The L3 cabinets are identified by having only two letter and two numbers stencilled on them.
  • The Green microbore is  8mm OD and is ran from the L2 cabinet to each ‘Toby’ outside the property.

The image below shows the microduct couplings in use within a pavement trench. Top picture taken at the junction of Dock Road and Bridges Street, bottom picture taken by the library shows a larger 12mm OD striped microduct.

Larger size microduct and coupling, (possibly for a multicore fibre, rather than a single fibre?).

 

Standards for reinstatement can be found HERE.

VM Marker tape
Marker tape

The marker tape which is put over the buried Virgin Media infrastructure and serves two purposes, the first is to allow detection using a Cable Avoidance Tool (CAT), the marker tape has two metal wires bonded to it, so the route of the tape can be found and traced from the surface without excavation, the second purpose is to warn that you are about to unearth or hit cables should you be digging.

Within the distribution board above is a smart RCD from Tii-Tech which is rather clever as it performs regular operational self tests to avoid the need for a person to visit the cabinet to do them. This write up from Gewiss explains how they work.

End of Line Termination Boxes

From the street termination box, a microduct coupling is used to extend the duct from the street cabinet to your outside wall, the fibre once blown through is connected to a media converter within the externally mounted Omnibox

The  media converter changes the fibres optical pulses of light into electrical data which a coaxial cable then takes to the Super Hub 3 Router and connectivity to the internet.

Cassette of single mode fibre, pre-terminated, up to 500m in increments of 25m are used dedpending on the distance from home to cabinet (25m, 50m, 75m, 100m, 125m, 150,m 300m & 500m).

This configuration will give data transfer speeds of up to 300Mbps, a basic outline of how it connects together is below, the VM Datacentre is in Wisbech and Chatteris is fed by a direct fibre from their:

VM Layout

In advance of Virgin installing the infrastructure in the street I have put a conduit through the wall into a dry lining box with a blank please and installed a length of 20mm flexible conduit from the pavement Toby to the house wall, bit premature, but hey ho :-)

Background

The cabinet backs onto a Grade 2 listed house and a black one was requested as it matches the surrounds a lot better than a grey one.  A point to note is that the ground level in the house is lower than the pavement. The contractors started digging up in front of one of the windows put a grey cabinet and it was a foot above the bottom of the window and as the house is lower inside when you looked out the top of the cabinet was eye height. The owners asked if they could move it down the street more which they did but then backfield the hole they dug with hardcore they took out and left it. With have requested several times for last 2/3 months if it can be re-tarmac to stop water running into the house which is going to collect there.

12 Nov 17, ground under window not restored.
