Which Drop Wire Connector Do Openreach Carry On Them?
« on: June 26, 2022, 06:49:21 PM »

Hi All,

Merely curious as to what Openreach engineers carry on them in regards to dropwire attachments that are fixed to walls, fascias etc... I have seen different types on houses from just general loops to L shaped drop wire connectors.

Many thanks in advance.

I have three drop cables as I have three lines, going into my house at upstairs level. They feed in at the top of the wall, underneath the edge of the roof, under the flashings and the first roof tiles. If I recall correctly, there are stiff steel wires going into the house which are plaited around the drop cable. Iíll ask my wife to take a photo close up.
