I am told by a person that airtel xstream fiber will be available from 1st of next month in my city and the website says the same but I can't any work going in my area or around the city. There is work being done by IGL for laying underground gas lines to each and every house. I can only see yellow pipes coming out of the roads.

The person said he has got the contract of laying fiber and proving connections on behalf of airtel. I can't see any DP box around as well. Could he be wrong?
The site says 18 days to go. But there are no DPs around.

They are done in night and quite efficiently, when jio was laying down their cable here, they used to start post 12 AM and by 5 AM ,they were done, it was hard to know if something happened there unless you were looking for it.

maybe municipality corps got strict?

Do they install DP box straight away? Or as per demand?
Municipality might not have any issue as IGL is laying gas pipes as well.

Exictel Fiber 100 Mbps Unlimited Plan
Dp box are installed after every 3-5 house only then the street is called fiber ready and sales can take Booking.
When you book a connection then fiber from dp box to your house is done. So dp box is must.

Fiber can be laid in a day in a street, u may better check the nearby street where they have laid cables and DB Boxes for confirmation. In our area, they have launched airtel Ftth in 15 days and laid cables in more than 30 streets in less than 2 weeks

I checked the other streets and unable to see any DB boxes yet. The person said you can get a connection after 1st of June. If what u say ftth can be laid in a day is true then he might install fiber and DP box in upcoming days.

Airtel cables are laid under ground upto DB Box, from DB Box to ont/router it's over the head. Act also does the same, Hathway uses electric pole

Laying fiber in a day and covering the whole street underground seems a difficult thing to do. I hope I am wrong.
