Will anyone be offering a self install soon?


[link to this post]
 
Subject to Openreach EMP R1700 which has:

ORC2M-8374

GEA-FTTC: PCP only install - offer CPs the option to order a PCP-only provide. This enables customers to offer self-install or accredited engineer install products to their end users

This is supposed to be released over th weekend 16th/17th July.

Will any ISPs be offering this in the near future, as I do want FTTC but my job means i am not at home most of the time, making appointments hard. Self install may be a better option for me.

If self install I would presume it would be like the old BTOpenworld ADSL Self installs when they first released it, you would get send a modem and on your alloted day the engineer will just tinker with the PCP and you just plug everything in when activated!

IIRC, that relates to a software update within BT OR, that is to allow them to start offering the service to CPs... but I don't think they've actually arranged to start offering it to the CPs yet. Obviously that's a first step before the ISPs can start offering it to us...

The price list from BT OR *does* have stuff for evening appointments and saturday appointments. You just have to persuade an ISP to actually offer that to you.
