We don't have cheat days for murdering people, so why excuse ourselves in case of eating animal products.. (understandable for transitioning vegans, but I'm talking more about the phonies)
We are born with the moral fibre to be vegans.. we are systematically brainwashed to disregard one of our strongest ethical codes, i.e. to treat animals like living beings.
It's tiring to see ppl "go Vegan" in some half assed fashion for clicks and views, then suffer from deficiency cos they didn't bother educating themselves on food and nutrition. When there are so many good resources available online, how can anyone mess this up ..
I’ve seen countless national clothing that looks very attractive, elegant, and/or unique. And I think it would be great if we could casually wear it, regardless of occasion or country. Sure, casual t shirts and jeans are nice. But I’d very happily wear lederhosen or a kilt.
I live in a rural area. At the edge of the property on which I live (I'm a tenant), there is a green fibre box. My current, copper broadband is 3Mps on a good day. I asked BT how to connect me to fibre, but they just directed me to a webform to "register an interest" in fibre when they decide to get round to doing something about it.
How do I actually book an appointment for a BT engineer to come around and connect me up to fibre? Anyone?
A quick question to draw on your collective experience in fibre to the desk networking.
I work for a small company with about 20 employees currently but this will rise to around 30 in the next 2 years. We are all telecoms engineers and as such we manage the IT ourselves and don't have an IT department, so that role falls to me and one other. I tend to get the short straw and deal with physical side, so spend more of my time than I would like with my head below raised flooring or above ceiling tiles. Our cabling needs are always changing... Such is life...
Our products are starting to feature optical networking at 10Gb. I need to run new cabling to the suite next door (other side of partition wall which will be removed soon) which we have just taken over, and I would like to rework our ailing cabling in the existing suite in future because it was inherited from pervious occupiers and is in a very poor state. Cat 6A, Coax, and Power are no problem. I'm used to optical networking but only with short patch leads and not structured cabling.
What do you guys recommend for fibre to the desk, and fibre runs between suites (sub 40m / 120ft)? I'd prefer something that we can install or change ourselves rather than needing external companies for splicing etc. I expect I need fibre that can handle a bit of abuse when installed, so armoured cable such as this from FS? We will be terminating in wall mounted network cabinets and in floor boxes akin to this one, unless any reason not to.
Edit: Thanks for your feedback guys. I'm going to take it on board and have a think about what I might or might not do.
un ******** une personne de peu de valeur s'est amusée à débrancher tous les cables du boîtier de raccordement fibre de mon immeuble.
Ca a vraiment l'air con, je vois un numéro d'identification sur chaque cable mais pas de numéro sur les prises : est-ce que quelqu'un sait comment rebrancher ce bordel ? (J'ai bien entendu contacté mon opérateur mais si je peux résoudre le problème moi même en 10 minutes, c'est toujours mieux que d'attendre le dépanneur.)
Edit: bon apparemment pas grand chose à faire sans le plan de câblage de la boite qui n'est visible nul part dans mon cas, donc j'attends le passage du technicien. Merci pour votre aide.
Basically all of Kingston, Ontario and parts of Montreal are currently down for Internet.
Personally my first two hops past my router timeout for ICMP packets so it's probably their edge routers overburden.
Title essentially. What advantage does having loads of fibres have over one solid piece? Flexibility?
Boot up the router, do a speed test. Great, that's 36mbps. Check again a few days later because your internet isn't as snappy as it was, and it's half that. Reboot router. Great it's back to a decent speed again. Repeat cycle. I swear they do this on purpose.
Sonic Fibre is now available in my neighborhood. It's the pure sonic system, not sonic reselling AT&T.
Do you have it? How do you like it? Would you recommend it?
I just got mine hooked up earlier today and haven't had a chance to test the speeds until now, it seems to cap out at 300mbps and I know I won't always get 1GB down but it shouldn't be that crazy of a difference does it normally take a little for the modern and router to settle in?
How reliable are the different service providers, mainly Singtel, M1, Starhub? Is the internet connection steady or laggy etc?
Currently in the process of buying a flat in the city. It's currently hooked up to Virgin Media FTTH but it's in a Hyperoptic area so hoping to get that instead. The complex is hooked up to Hyperoptic but as the current owners use Virgin, the flat its self hasn't. Unfortunately this means someone coming along and probably drilling a hole in the wall somewhere.
The general clauses of the factor documentation states we can make no significant alterations to the structure of the property but we haven't seen the nitty gritty details yet, and won't until about a week before completion so we've no clue if drilling a hole for a fibre line is allowed, as it will impact the outside of the building. By this point it could be several weeks or longer than a month until they can come out and install it, and I'd rather order ahead of time to be installed in the first week after moving in.
I could reach out to the factors and they could say yes or no. But if they're going to say no it might be better to ask for forgiveness later.
Or is installing a new fibre line not classed as as a major alteration? The only thing that concerns me is we've already seen a group communication from the factors regarding hooking the complex up to Openreach FTTH, which makes me think it could be a group organised thing.
Anyone experienced something similar before?
Working on a project.
Also I'm not a native American so I'm not very well versed with the law, but why wasn't Wayne Williams executed? What is the fuss regarding KKK about?
I've been surrounded by friends, family and work colleagues with more horror stories about fibre installations than I care to mention. The common theme - All done by idiots with no care taken both atheistically and structurally. And a heathy addiction to silicon...
To save the hassle of idiots gluing a patch work of conduit across my front windows. Can I do this myself? Or to what extent can I have everything sorted ahead of time. Or failing that, is there a premium service where you can pay for people who aren't idiots install your fibre connection.
In my case, I'd like to run all my own conduit/trace and mount the ETP. Ideally I'd like to have everything in place, so all they have to do it literally blow in some cable and connect it.
Pretty much the title says all. The rack is in the basement, and is mainly SFP+ ports, but I'm not adverse to using copper, I have transceivers for it, so that wouldn't be an additional cost. No POE gear planned for the future. We have a couple Unifi WAPs, but we can put a switch in-line to "convert" to copper. I suppose the main cost is labour, so maybe it wouldn't be crazy to wire for both?
What are all your thoughts?
Hello, we are moving to Slovenia and I'm looking for a list of optical coverage by the internet provider so we can better decide on real estate.
So far I've found something like this for one https://www.telekom.si/pomoc-in-podpora/teme-pomoci/pokritost-in-dostopnost/dostopnost-opticnega-omrezja
Probably telemach is but struggle to find their coverage. Thank you for any hint!
Edit: yes I know I could run cat6. I don’t want to. The underground run will go right past a stand of trees, and the risk of lightning strikes destroying my network is real. I don’t fully trust network surge arresters. This post was supposed to be about how to run fibre, not whether to run fibre! 😅
I’m a complete newb when it comes to fibre. I’ve never pulled it before, Never even used a fibre patch!
I’m doing some renovations and I want to run a 10G fibre line to an external building that I’m turning into an office/workshop. I’m looking for some advice on how to run and finish my fibre.
I’ve got a rack at the front of the house with a UDM-Pro. The office is off the back of the house. In between the rack and the back of the house, I’ve got the bottom landing of a staircase (the rack is under the stairs), a closet with two brick walls, then there’s a bathroom that has a high ceiling above it. I can probably go up and over. Finally, I have an exterior brick wall. Excluding any vertical distance, the interior distance is about 15m.
Outside, I’ve got a 30m run of grass to the office, which has wooden walls.
Because the interior run is complicated and will need conduit, I don’t think direct bury cable is the right choice, but I’m a newb with fibre.
I am planning to run a conduit from the rack to the exterior wall, but I know there’s a limit on the number of bends I can have in the conduit between pull panels. Aesthetically, I think the way to run the conduit is probably to go straight down from the rack to floor level, through the void under the bottom landing of the stairs, into the closet and up one wall, out above the bathroom, against the wall over to the exterior wall, then down to a box on the interior wall. From there, I’ll need an underground run to the office.
But this is just for the most aesthetically pleasing run. That doesn’t mean it’s the best way to run fibre, so if there’s a better way to run it, I’d like to know. The run is all along one wall, so I can see an argument for Just making it straight, but the wall is brick and it’s a party wall, so chipping into it to hide the conduit is likely a non-starter, which means that the conduit would need to be exposed in all the rooms.
I do need to run about 4 CAT6 drops along the same interior path, so I could potentially use the same conduit or run conduits together most of the way.
The other option is to go straight out the front wall, then around the house, underground the whole way. Tha... keep reading on reddit ➡
