XGS-PON Installation/Live timeline

Joining in

Nexfibre are currently/have finished laying fibre in my street. I was wondering what the timeline typically is from when roadworks have been completed to go live on VM website. Currently my area does not have fibre, although closely neighbouring areas have VM & XGS-PON setup, at all so this is the first fibre installation for the street.

VM do not publish anywhere the schedule for installations, all you can do is register your interest on their website. Even when the local installation is complete the times before going live can vary enormously. 

There are 10 types of people: those who understand binary and those who don't and F people out of 10 who do not understand hexadecimal c1a2a285948293859940d9a49385a2

Tuning in

Avonline on behalf of Nexfibre finished installing the micro trunking on my small(ish) estate at the end of Feb. Since then, absolutely nothing. I put a message on here which staff tried to help with; Nothing useful. I've emailed the expansion team; Nothing useful, apart from confirming that we will have XGS-PON.

Just last week a couple of Avonline vans have been parked up by the street cabinets. What they've been doing I don't know. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to go out there and ask them what they were doing inside the cabinets. The only thing I can see that's changed is they've stencilled a reference on to the cabinets. It's a positive sign things are happening, but I have a feeling that I need to see Virgin vans before I'll be able to order.
