You can fit more than one cable down a single tee, unlikely the OP will share a cable


to be fair i saw a house earlier with a joint pavement tee and the box on the wall looked like it ran a cable to the house next door,i could be wrong

Re: Shared street Connection

I share my neighbour's cable. There is only one Toby outside their house and VM split the cable to serve both of us..

Do you your own omni box or is it purely a case of one box and your cable runs from your neighbours one?

Re: Shared street Connection

The cable runs to my neighbour's omni box where it's split, and my cable runs along the exterior walls of our semi-deatched houses to my own omni box.

Re: Shared street Connection

Hi wevsky,

 

Thank you for your post. 

 

What we would recommend is to book the installation and make sure that you are present for the install so you can discuss the routing of the cabling, if it has to come from the main junction box on the street or the tech can assess if the junction box his neighbour has can be shared as some can and some can't but they will discuss this with yourself before they do any work providing you brings this up with them first.

 

I hope this helps.

Re: Shared street Connection

If yourself and the engineer cannot come to an agreement then you simply need to advise the engineer that you don't wish for the installation to go ahead.
