    Your Trooli Fibre to the Premises Installation


    Two installation stages

    Your new fibre optic connection will be built in two stages: the External Installation and the Internal Installation.

    Stage 1: The external Installation

    The External Installation is completed by Trooli. This brings the fibre optic cable up to the outside of your premises (what we call the ‘External Demarcation Point’). It will usually be next to the current copper telephone cable entry to your premises. We install a small box onto your external wall, and our fibre optic cable is connected into this box.

    Stage 2: The internal installation

    The Internal Installation extends the fibre optic cable to a suitable location for your optical terminating equipment (modem) and router.

    A hole will be drilled through your external wall next to the small box that was installed during Stage 1, and an internal fibre optic cable (provided by Trooli) is routed from the outside box to the internal equipment location.

    Trooli Approved Installation

    Your Internal Installation will be carried by one of our own Trooli installation teams, and your end-to-end installation and service activation will be taken care of by Trooli. All installers work to our agreed standards using our approved equipment. The amount you pay for our installation service is standard in accordance with the following rules:

    • Drilling of a hole through the external premise wall will be as close to the existing BT telephone cable entry as safely as possible.
    • The location of the optical modem and router will be within the room in which the fibre enters the premises. Up to a maximum of 5m of internal fibre cabling will be provided to place the internal connection socket in a suitable location within that room.
    • The fibre cable will be tacked against walls and skirting boards; it may be on both inside and outside walls.

    Please refer to our Price Guide for the latest pricing information. Call Flow approved Installation Services are covered by our Terms of Service.
