Planning our Community Fibre Route

Members of the BBFP committee travelled to Tralee’s Education & Training Board (ETB) last week to visit an onsite training group for the installation of fibre broadband. Here they were given a detailed show & tell of the equipment and components used to lay fibre but, more importantly, they were there to discuss the various techniques involved in getting a fibre route around the village.

Overhead or underground, the fibre must be laid in a complete loop in the most cost-effective and safest manner. Whether running by back garden walls or into neighbouring fields, under eaves or from gable to gable, whichever is the most cost-effective and secure. Members of the committee will be getting in touch with households again over the coming weeks and months to come up with a proposed route.
