Why would you give a user a reason to ask for compensation?

Compensation wouldn't enter the equation on a bog-standard pole replacement task - it's our furniture - if the pole has been deemed dangerous through decades of rot/decay, or needs increasing in size to attain the minimum height across carriageways, then we have to remedy this.

Of course, each pole situation is bespoke, but on the whole our contractors can crack off 2-3 pole changeouts a day. The time spent tracing each ISP on each pole, contacting them, who in turn would have to contact their own EU (otherwise it's a completely pointless exercise) ..... well, they'd have the pole swapped and moved on by then.

And, also, the domestic telephony service or Internet access service is a "best effort" with no guarantee of 100% up-time.

If 100% up-time is essential then the appropriate product, with the requisite SLA, should have been ordered and a contract signed.

With both OR and PIA firms, using OR telephone poles for FTTP, I was wondering how many different FTTP infrastructure firms a single telephone poll can support before its "full"

Say you have a pole in a urban area with two bundles of legacy OR copper
