NBN contractors showed up in our street this morning.
In December, we received an information pack, explaining that we would receive HFC connection, sometime before June 2018, and the connection would be made above-ground, from the existing pole-mounted infrastructure, to the fascia of our house or to a riser pole on the roof.
One of the contractors knocked on the door this morning to advise that they were going to run a new cable through the existing conduit leading under our house. My wife has checked with the contractor, and yes, it is coaxial that they are running underground. It seems the entire street is being done this way.
Has anyone else experienced this ? It's the first I've heard of HFC being distributed underground rather than using an above-ground connection ( except in a limited number of special cases ).
