New installation

I have a new install on 18th November and I've had a text to say they will be doing exterior work before then but won't be bothering me. Does that mean just any necessary digging or does it also include putting the exterior box on the wall? If so can I ask for where it goes on the wall and also the box colour? In other words can I ask them to ring the doorbell so I can discuss this?

Re: New installation

Hello

The external work will be just to run the cable from the cabinet to your premises, the external team will leave the cable  coiled at the front of the premises, when the install date comes the internal engineer will install the external box which will be either grey or brown depending on what the internal engineer has and do any drilling needed, to pass the cables into the premises.

Re: New installation

When I had my services installed, the external team fitted the external box too, and the cable was terminated inside the box for the internal engineer who added an extension piece to bring it inside the house. 

I assume therefore that some areas are different to others, but not much difference, unless you need to specify where the external box goes.
