    Does the arrival of all this fibre optic stuff mean they will be digging all the pavements up again ?

    Normally it's pulled though existing GPO ducts .. then just a short trench from the pavement into each house or block of flats..
    If your existing phone line is on poles... then they will dig up your street and it will look like a WW1 battle field.. :Laughing:
