FTTC to FTTC Migrations


[link to this post]
 
Has anybody in here experienced one yet, it's now about a year since FTTC came available in some areas, so I'd expect them to start happening soon ?

When I've enquired with a couple of ISPs about FTTC migrations, it seems BT Openreach charge not much less than a 'fresh' install for one, which seems rather unfair ! Money for old rope etc ?

I migrated between FTTC suppliers back a few months ago. I only had to pay £1 for the migration but I used a MAC code. Some ISP's automated systems may not be set-up yet, and was the case with my migration. A phone call was all that was required though.

Might have another 6 months wait, BT FTTC is 18 month contract.
As at Feb this year there was only 6 ISP offering FTTC, i went with a new listing.

No plan so far on migrating good service and relatively cheap, does me.

I will look forward to above question as well, is it not just a rerouting to new ISP since already connected?

According to here a CP to CP GEA migration costs CP's £50+VAT.
That charge maybe absorbed by the ISP into the monthly rental

Ah but! smile

Migration between two BT Wholesale-using ISPs, ie all except TalkTalk at the moment, I don't think would be a GEA migration. The customer would be on the same GEA handover at the exchange.

A GEA migration sounds like moving the connection to a different CP's MSAN. So to and from TalkTalk would cost the £50.

I am afraid the charge is correct, BT do make a hefty charge for FTTC to FTTC migrations, makes no sense until you take into the equation that they would not be wanting anyone from their retails are to be moving their service to another CP

Shirley if the FTTC service is still provided via BTW, then from an Openreach perspective, there is no migration and nothing changes. The End User remains connected to the same Provider (BTW). It would only need system changes by BTW to update records and re-point the session to a different CP.
