FTTH: some more pictures of phase 1

Phase 1 is getting fiber to my home and that is now finished. Phase 2 will be hooking me and the rest of the street up to the active equipment. It took a bit longer for me to be hooked up to the network than I expected. I live almost precisely half way the street. The neighbours a couple of doors away to the right see their fibre go to the right. I see my fibre move to the left. The fibres meet up at the other end of the block.

At the end of the day a man from a construction company arrived to fix a damaged muff that encapsulated a traditional PSTN-cable. The man repairing it wasn't too kind about the competences of the fiber diggers. He said he had seen them too often and knew every dig site. At this moment only a small bit of fiber sticksout of the ground near my front door. It still needs to go to my meter closet, where the connections for the telephone, cable, electricty, cold water, warm water and central heating are too. (Almere has a city wide central heating and warm water system.)
