FTTP


[link to this post]
 
Just wdonering if this was an error.

My line checker says.

http://prntscr.com/3fs4kr

My exchange is one of the 2014 ones. But when I do a check for ultrafast infinity I only get normal FTTC options.

So is this still in the loop to be done?

Also is there a path to upgrade from FTTC to FTTP or is it seoerate?

I'm asking as I could use this for business (video intensive - working from home) and I am in a connected cities voucher area. Also I know it's £100 a month for FTTP now but I'm not bothered about that)

Thanks

FTTP and FTTPoD (on Demand) are 2 different things.

FTTP and FTTC are an either/or but no choice which you have, that's down to how your cabinet area is provisioned.

FTTPoD is an option on some exchanges for those who can already get FTTC, but it'll cost you big bucks.

Thanks

I was told it's £99 now. I have a voucher from the council for £3000 however we might have GEA whatever in the area. The exchange is 300M away so I am going to ask the engineer when he comes to see me later in the month.

£99 per month is the cost from Openreach, there is the wholesale and retail costs to be added to that

I must have misread when they said it had gone from £38 to £99 I assumed that was all the costs.

Well anything up to £200 a month would be okay.

Thanks for the information

Is £99 + VAT - but will be close to £200 when you take into account the ISP overheads (bandwidth charges etc.)

You need to get a quote for the installation. Around 1 in 3 incur 'excessive construction' charges.

FOD is priced differently per each CP -you will need to speak to an Providier - (engineer wont be able to help you) -- it is also distance dependant and you have to be on an FTTC enabled cab to even concisder puchasing FOD -- distance is from you to aggregation nde (not distance to enabled cab assuming you are on an enabled cabinet)
