More values proposal

In Italy, operator TIM (formerly known as Telecom Italia) is installing FTTC boxes atop of existing street cabinets, which are reached via VDSL2 technology. Moreover, two secondary operators (Vodafone and Fastweb) are installing their own cabinets next to TIM ones. In some cases, i.e. where there is not enough space available to install a cabinet, a manhole on the sidewalk or on the road is installed by a secondary operator in order to accommodate its own appliances. Thus, maybe a new key is needed to differentiate between a cabinet and a manhole. --SteveVG (talk) 12:29, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Multiple values

As multiple technologies are possible in the same cabinet, I would prefer something like

Hi, do you have examples where several medium are present in the same node or equipment ?
Chances are low to have a single network with several technologies. How to map section encourage to draw different OSM nodes when two or more logical network places cohabits in the same building
Your solution is interesting, we'll think about it, thank you Fanfouer (talk) 12:40, 9 June 2018 (UTC)


In the UK it is usual to refer to FTTP (premises) rather than write "FTTH or FTTO."

It might be useful to include a glossary. Then again, if you don't know what FTTP means then you probably shouldn't be mapping this stuff because you're very likely to get it wrong. :) Brian de Ford (talk) 13:11, 9 June 2018 (UTC)
