Infrastructure firm Openreach is using a range of tools, including ditch
diggers and diamond cutters, to speed up the rollout of ultrafast
broadband services to hard-to-reach rural areas."

I will believe it when I see it.

So far all we ever get is a load of blokes with a minidigger and spades
and a road closed for a week or more. Disruption is made worse by the
requirement that all new cable installs have to be fully ducted.
Previously it was just a slit trench with a wire directly in the ground.

Makes life interesting for them since they have to be very careful
digging into the same ground as the existing old cable run.

Round here virgin used microtrenching (in the footpath) to insert their
fibre tubes with drop-points to each house (like water stop cock boxes)

The BT one looks like it's going into the road, about 6" from the kerb,
wonder how that will fare when leccy, gas, sewer works come along?
