Dec 10 >> Mar 11 theory


[link to this post]
 
There is a sudden spate of dates changing from December 2010 to March 2011, even where the cabinets are already installed and apparently ready to go. Mine included.

BT Wholesale can't make up its mind at the moment - the post code and address checker says I can currently get it, the phone number says March.

My theory - they may be putting back the RFS dates because the bandwidth demands from those already have in service have far exceeded the forecasts, so they are going to delay until they have more backhaul in place.

Or they are delaying to allow revenue to come in before spending more on backhaul.

That's just an extension of my theory smile. You assume there is insufficient backhaul.

Not really, it's a possible root cause for your theory. You assume there is insufficient backhaul, I agree, but suggest the reason for the delay adding more backhaul might not be technical as you say, but rather financial. smile

I don't see where the additional revenue you posit comes from. Certainly not from BT Infinity, which seems to be being sold at below the wholesale cost of FTTC to other providers.

It's still cashflow and it isn't their only stream obviously.

I'm sure you'll get it in the end, you have more hope than others too.

That's not the point of the thread tongue.

The cost/benefit for me is extremely doubtful anyway.

Never said it was tongue it's still relevant anyway if you want to get into pedantics.

There can be a thousand theorys, just wait and take comfort from the fact you have more hope than most. Or not. laugh

Surely the additional revenue would come from actually using the equipment they have spent so much capital on already?

My theory for this delay...


If the fat lazy sods that work for BT did some work instead of just sitting in the vans drinking tea all day, things might move along more quicker.. laugh

without fail every time I drive past BT van, they are doing NOTHING and drinking tea.
