When will BT announce next phase fibre roll out?


[link to this post]
 
As far as I know, there's only fibre roll out information till March 2012 and nothing else after that.

I wanted to know when they're revealing the information of fibre roll out in summer 2012? 'Cause my exchange might be one of 'em.

I think the short answer is when they get round to it. Most companies like to make big announcement when financial results are due.

I think BT have already announced their 2012 rollout in that the current dates will be slipped by 3 months every 3 months way into 2014.

The less they announce the less people will be disappointed.

it seems BT arent capable of thinking./planning past a year or 2, short termist company.

I think they should announce entire rollout plan so every area knows where they stand but a company like BT wont do that.

So that their competition know exactly what they're doing and plan accordingly to jump in first? This isn't a state monopoly any more. They have to compete.

As a former employee I'm aware of the flaws in BT planning but also know they don't just do it week to week or month to month.

The moans about dates slipping will make them a lot less likely to announce large batches, and only announce once they are more sure about hitting the dates.

It is also possible that priorities may have being switching about based on the levels of take-up of the product, in the different types of areas of the UK.

If any firm can only secure firm finding for 12 to 24 months then that is all they can commit too.

If BT are to be forced to announce the entire roll-out plan, what will they be given in return for this information? As a PLC they have a duty to their shareholders.

You try managing a project the size of the fibre roll-out ...

Geographically diverse, manpower availability always changing, local authorities causing problems, other network faults needing priority resolution, &c &c. It is a massive project with so many variables that cannot be accurately predicted at the start and everything will change as it progresses.

The project plan is almost certainly all there over a 5 year period with product road-maps for the next 10 years - no way is it short term. There is probably more information with approximate dates - but why should BT publish it and give competitors an advantage? In fact why do they need to publish any dates? They could just publish it 1 week before go-live on each exchange.
