How is the broadband service going to be physically delivered to each home or business?

The broadband network consists of the fibre dug into a narrow (15mm) trench, mainly across fields to the rear of properties using a mole plough or equivalent, as shown.

In exceptional circumstances, we may install the fibre by micro-trenching into the road surface, though we will normally install fibre under roads to avoid surface degradation. Modern micro-trenching units dig a trench just 15mm wide. After the trench is dug, fibre conduit is laid at the bottom and sealed in place with filler to maintain the structural integrity of the road, following which a layer of asphalt or a pre-formed insert is placed on the surface, matching the existing road surface.
