Openreach Begin First UK Trial of Micro Ducting FTTP Deployment

Telecoms operator Openreach (BT) has today begun trials of a “new” civil engineering technique called “Micro Ducting“, which in some areas could be used to speed up the roll-out of their new Gigabit capable Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband ISP technology to UK homes and businesses.

The trial was first hinted at as part of a story we ran on 10th January 2019 (here), which covered the operator’s decision to remove a batch of new 35ft tall telegraph poles after their erection caused anger among the residents of Armstrong Avenue in the suburbs of Exeter (Devon). At the time very little was known about this trial except that it had been developed in Germany.
