BE say "unlikely to launch fibre service in 2012"


[link to this post]
 
From the BE Blog today:
http://blog.bethere.co.uk/2012/04/update-on-fibre.html

I wonder if this means the application for finance from the Telefonica group in Spain was turned down?

Damn. It looks like Sky will be the only real choice for unshaped & unlimited this year.

If the network upgrade is delayed to 2013, then its goodbye O2/Be as usage is growing month on month and without extra network capacity things will not be good.

Guesswork but possibly down to the costs of getting the exchange LLU kit to accept the FTTC fibre handover.

Really hope o2/be can pull this out of the bag, as would be a shame to see a move away from them by masses.

So if the Be*/o2 network becomes too congested, I wonder where people could/should move next?

Sorry BE you had your chance. I was in general happy overall but this just shows a lack of commitment in your products and if you can't commit to it why should I?

Agreed.

Yes, updating the exchange kit could be the cost; maybe the DSLAM/ISAMs already in place don't support gigabit connections into the backhaul.

The sad thing is with this pseudo-announcement, a lot of people who can move to Infinity (or Sky when they launch) who might have waited for BE, will probably stop waiting.

Assuming FTTC is available to you, you could sign up on an 18 month contract and be in perfect time for BE to launch. You may even get 80/20 shortly.
