thanks but if it is outside on the street , how does it go over my drive into the house? Do they have to dig the drive up... Know this might sound daft but need to know what's involved as I don't own the property
yes dig the drive up and install in the wall it is
fibre optic upto your street not your house. its cooper wiring upto the house. If the question is how do the install then yes they dig up the front lawn/drive if this has not already been done before.
My whole drive is concrete though? Haha

No, they don't own the telegraph pole. The may run it down the side of a brick garden wall.
They will dig up your concrete drive, lay the cable and then reinstate your drive.

Only about a spade width.

They could lay cement over the wire. Have soil for 3 quarters in my garden and then a couple of slabs, they put the wire through a plastic tube then a small layer of cement over it.
