We are off. The first group of 15 learners have commenced training on our Airblown Fibre Optic Cable Network Installation and Maintenance Technician programme. Providing learners with the skills to be able to build a blown fibre tube network infrastructure. Pull and blow fibre optic cables into the network. Fusion splice fibre optic cables to joint them together. Test cables that have been installed. And finally complete the installation of fibre/copper into a domestic customer or business clients premises. Connecting up to terminal equipment such as broadband modems and voip equipment.

There has never been a more comprehensive training programme available, providing an individual with complete end to end skills to enable them to work almost anywhere on the build of a fibre based telecommunications projects. Usually an individual would have to complete several expensive courses on the differring subjects

01-09-2012: Broadbandcareers Commences its own Fibre Installation work activities
For a long time Broadbandcareers have provided technical support and advice for companies with their installation projects. Because of our level of expertise we have in some cases had to intervene with some companies and complete works with them to prevent their project from failing.

We came to the conclusion that we are better placed and equipped than a lot of companies that would like to complete this sort of work activity. But are not prepared to properly train and equip their staff to enable them to do so.

We have now changed our consultancy activities to be a fully equipped and operational optic fibre cable installation activity. Choosing to take on installation works rather than try to support companies that are not prepared to train and equip their staff.

We would like to thank Radius for this support which demonstrates their commitment to helping those within or interested in the industry to become skilled and qualified.

The best of the new connections will allow internet downlaoad speeds of up to 300mbps. The regulator OFCOM calculated this year that the average connection speed in the ukl is 6.8mbps. Which compared with cable communication operators is pretty poor.

14-04-2011: Scuttlebut:
Basically the tom tom drums are screaming come to Germany. A call has gone out to all fibre optic cablers and fibre splicing companies to provide resources for the major FTTH upgrades which are commencing. It is estimated that projects are to connect up one million homes. The rest of Europe could be bled dry of fibre optic cable splicers

14-04-2011: Fujitsu to build UK FTTH network: Article from Michael Carroll
Plans by Fujitsu to deploy high-speed fixed broadband infrastructure in the UK could revolutionize access in rural areas, a leading independent broadband expert claims.
Sebastien Lahtinen, co-founder of says Fujitsuís commitment to deploy FTTH to five million homes in the country will provide a viable alternative to incumbent BTís fiber network, and could result in rural areas leapfrogging urban sites in terms of deployments.

It is exactly what campaigners for the final third have been seeking, Lahtinen told TelecomAsia.

Fujitsuís plan, revealed yesterday, leverages a decision by regulator Ofcom to force BTís Openreach infrastructure business to open its ducts and poles to rival operators on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms. ISPs Virgin Media and TalkTalk have already committed to access wholesale services on the network, which will be built on Cisco infrastructure.

The Japanese vendor believes its plan to bypass street cabinets and run fiber optic cable straight to the home will make itís network particularly well suited for rural areas that might otherwise be overlooked due to commercial concerns.

28-02-2011: Deutsche Telekom plans fibre-optic network expansion
Deutsche Telekom has confirmed plans to deploy FTTH connections to up to 160,000 households in ten cities in 2011. Selected districts of the cities of Braunschweig, Bruehl, Hanover, Hennigsdorf, Neu-Isenburg, Kornwestheim, Mettmann, Offenburg, Potsdam and Rastatt will be wired with fibre in 2011.

To meet increasing demand for bandwidth, Telekom is deploying a combination of technologies that matches fibre optics and copper lines with broadband wireless such as HSPA+, LTE and WLANs, to create a nationwide, broadband gigabit network. Pilot fibre projects were launched in Hennigsdorf and Braunschweig in 2010.

In addition, a pilot household in Dresden was wired with FTTH with speeds of up to 1 Gbps. VDSL is available in 50 German cities and more than 60 percent of households in Germany can surf at transmission speeds of 6-16 Mbps. In August 2010, Telekom added the first LTE mobile base station in Germany to its network, in Kyritz in Brandenburg.

In addition, in the past year the company boosted large parts of its HSPA/UMTS network to a top speed of 21 Mbps, while increasing coverage by over 10 percent, now reaching 83 percent of the population. Marketing of the matching data rates will begin in Q2 2011.

Telekom also plans to expand its HSPA network again, doubling bandwidth in the entire network to up to 42 Mbps by end-2011. New LTE mobile broadband technology will be provided to selected business customers in early-summer 2011 as part of friendly-user tests. In addition, the city of Cologne will receive near-total LTE coverage. In 2011, Telekom expects to sign 700-800 co-operative agreements with local authorities to expand DSL services into rural areas.
