 :shrug2:  I've been asleep since typing that!

What we need is someone with calipers and some cable to measure.  :)

An SC/APC connector is approximately 9mm at its widest point. The cable I was (am) thinking about is the "inside out", which run from the ONT out to the CSP. I'm sure it is similar in diameter to a Cat5e Ethernet cable . . .

Thanks for the Info. If its similar to cat5e that's even better for looks with the boss!
I will measure it anyway once its in with my calipers ;)

I'm sure Black Sheep will be able to quote the appropriate dimension when he next passes this way.

Yep. About 5mm outer sheath. Which is 0.5cm.

Seems I can't even do basic maths any more.

Cheers. Looking forward to finally being free from that pesky eci cab -you know the one I mean  ::)

No, no I do not

So the cable from the csp to the garage-anyone clarify the diameter of the cable. Have made a gap under the step at the front so it can run neatly out of sight

As I says, 8mm.
The rats tail/pig tail/ripcord/in-out cable (Depending on who you talk to) is from the ONT out to the CSP. Any internal run has to have it's black outer layer stripped off due to fire safety, reduces diameter to around 5mm

As its run inside-out with the connector already on, how do you remove it?

Sorry but I take Reply #21 as the definitive data source for the currently deployed EZ Bend inside-out cable, of which I was referring.

I'm thinking of upgrading my FTTC to FTTP now that AAISP are offering the full range of speeds. Initially, my line came into the house by the front door but, around 20 years ago, I had it moved to my upstairs study when I had ISDN installed. The current line is now routed around the side of the house at just above ground level and then up the wall into my study. It comes from the street via an underground duct (rodded and roped).

Would you expect any issues having the fibre routed in the same way? House is a small detached, so no great distances involved.

From what you have described I wouldn't expect there to be a problem.
