Your RSP can arrange the installation of an aerial lead-in cable (new services), if required.

Customer must bear the cost of a buried lead-in cable to the property’s front boundary. In addition, if there is no existing lead-in cable or conduit in place, new customers are required to trench and lay 20 mm white PVC conduit (at a depth of 300 mm from the NBP on the side of building to the front boundary), for connecting into the Network.
