Underground cable

High capacity cable that feeds from the exchange to the cabinet.  Run in a continuous length if possible to avoid joints.

As this cable will be pressurised and is an expensive cable, the less joints mean literally no maintenance.

In the arly days of the Telephone, there was no such thing as multi-core cable and customers were fed with open wires from the exchange to the premises.  Click here for more details.
