Re: Bright House is right
said by somms:Depends. I've had several business FIOS installations done over the past month, and a couple of them took 2-3 hours. The bulk of the time is trenching in the fiber. One building even had existing conduit from a telco vault outside, but they had to bring the fiber from an access point about 100 yards away. No obstacles, just a long distance. They put in 2 fiber drops-- one lit, one dark-- so they wouldn't have to repeat the job if we added more services in the future. (Fiber is cheap, might as well over-build while the trench is open.)
Not sure how sh***y the FiOS installers are that it would take HOURS to install...
The contract installers who brought my socialist Fiber connection into my house had everything terminated, attached and working in well under an hour!
