Is there a logical pattern


[link to this post]
 
The title says it all. Is there any sort of pattern to the FTTC rollout. I understand the different Markets and how they relate to the number of different IPs with their equipment in the exchange, but are BT targeting a particular market or is it a little more subtle than that? Hoping for a rollout for Market 3 Leyland Exchange in the next phase but not holding my breath

If god had meant man to fly he would have given him more understanding bank managers!

No. Or at least no-one has spotted one yet.

Maybe the logic is 'make sure every cabinet is emitting a loud buzzing noise before we bother connecting any of them'.

the whole rollout is based on a business model so its not random in the slightest

I got the impression they were targetting areas which have other suppliers.

That was my theory anyway. smile

Could you elaborate on your ideas?

I think you can be fairly confident it will ultimately concern making money.

No doubt there will be numerous factors that have different degrees of influence over where will be preferable to deliver and in what order, so the 'quick hits' or more profitable locations are built earlier during the rollout.

Costs of deployment will be a major factor, but may not necessarily be a block if the percieved returns are sufficient.
Locations where there is competition from cable may well have some influence, but I doubt it would be a sole driver.
Number of premises passed will have some impact, so busy cabs that serve a high number of sites would be preferred over those that serve fewer.

In short, I don't think there's a simple "we will go here because of this reason", but rather a combination of different reasons will create the commercially sensible case for doing so.

So you think the assumption is that they look for areas with no competition or a lot?

I think competition is not a high up factor on this.

I have seen market 1,2,3 exchanges all picked, and there is certianly market 3 exchanges (which have VM cable) not on their list.

The factors I have noticed are.

How affluent the area is.
How much properties in the area are commercial.
How close cabinet is to exchange,

Viability seems to be measured per cabinet rather than per exchange, and my guess is a exchange needs X amount of cabinets to be viable to be considered.
