So our Strata Complex is switching over to Telus PureFibre, but we didn't get any explanation on how it "should" be done.
I have reviewed what Telus says on there FibreUpgrade page, and tried to understand The-Story-of-My-Fibre-Install forum post, but I have some questions.
My Line Diagram for Fibre installation:
TELUS CO --- "Last 100 metre" Cable Phone Pole --- House (External) --- Drill Through Wall --- Fibre Goes where??
Thanks, and feel free to add any information you think I didn't ask but would be good to know - links are fine.

Don’t confuse the installation info drafted for single family dwellings with what will happen in a multi-family dwelling. Here are my best guess answers to your questions:
Usually this occurs at a telecommunications cabinet, or near your electrical panel, where existing ethernet or phone wiring exists. In some instances it is run to the location of your router.
I don’t think you need worry much about dust, bugs, soot. The installer will discuss / determine the best option for your install upon arrival.
See previous comment.

@DJVS With strata units or apartments there is usually a utility room with all power meters in it and a big telephone entrance wire panel where tel wires are seperated and sent to each unit. Thats where the fiber will enter and how they get fiber to the units is their problem existing conduits to each units ? Inside telephone wire 4 wires cannot hook to the ont. Requires cate cable from ont where ever it is located to the modem / router. Older apartment blocks and stratas are a big headache but $ of wiring by owner of structure can fix it. If wired for a cable company tv service it may not happen.

Just one caveat and to some extremely important. Good luck using fax over the new fibre network.
No luck using my new multi function printer, went over the setup information many times and no luck.
Ok the old faithful simple multi function unit worked for years, powered it up, no joy, seems that fax machines
will only work on the old copper networks. Will investigate further but hold little hope.
