Can you give me snap of your splitter box if it can be opened?

It's tape wrapped so possible but dare not to do that

Dual core cable according to my LCO..hmm I guess i am fooled here as I indirectly funded fiber laying under supposed "installation charges"
.I can get another ftth connection from another isp
Two different WANs over same cable, how is it possible?

Whats' you arrangement?

Kindly elaborate?

Since there are two fiber strand,one is already being used for bsnl ftth,the another one is free till the part where most isp will place their node.Thus,two connections.
Even,we can have two seperate wan over same cable provided the OLT is configured.
I guess @varkey had same configuration for KV and BSNL.
I think that you should clear to the LCO that cable is exclusively yours and another user must pay to use it.
Mine was also tape wrapped but i could not resist messing up with it.It is simple setup in my case,but it may vary in complexity,i respect your decision to not to mess with it,specially in these crisis days as repair will not be readily done.
Also,most of the fiber strands are joined using fusion splicing which can easily handle the force of 0.5 lbs.Thus,the box is just to protect it from excessive bends which may break the joints.
Since your cable is dual core,you can also use the another core for another connection.I suggest being clear to the LCO on this.

Having two ISP on single fiber strand is easily achievable by using vlans.

I think it is only possible when one olt is used.
What do you think if two different isp can give us connection using single strand with different olt?
If i remember the pon operating standard correctly,it will reduce time available for each olt to half,thus,each olt have halved throughput but can give connection to all users since transmission is based on time differential duplex.

The PON standard work on auto-discovery and TDD basics.I think it is possible to have two different olt providing connection over same fiber strand but the bandwidth will be halved.
Each PON device have specified time to listen and send data.Thus,if two OLT are there and configured to work together,it can be done but total maximum bandwidth will take considerable hit.
For EPON,1gbps throughput will be halved.But, since EPON support variable packet size data and maximum bandwidth is not always utilised,it could work without significantly hurting any of the connection.
Maybe,but this is usually not used since most isp are rich enough to lay fiber seperately,and never share infrastructure,leading to stupid and unrequired investment capping the investment on equipments and international transit.

I've seen LCOs using multi core fiber cables to from different pon ports of the same olt to provision connections.
They use different strands for different areas, yeah ethernet standards are quite flexible and the cheaper cost of EPON pushes LCOs to get epon olts.
I know that it can be done but now one will do it because of too much work and the performance penality.
