A few months to go for me (Feb 2012). Who are you going with? I haven't seen any price plans for FTTP yet

According to the famous "April spreadsheet" our cabinet will be 100% fttp too. I presume there will be a number of speed-capped plans, from the fttc equivalent of 40meg to the full 100meg. I'm guessing BT might be the only viable option price-wise, especially at the higher speeds

A recent BT newsletter to our village says we should start seeing the OR vans anytime from September

It has been posted around here that Infinity prices on FTTP are the same as on FTTC. I don't knw about any other ISP.

100MB - no chance. One eighth of that speed at 100Mb maybe!

Rather than bother that nice James from adsl24 again: what can I expect to see happening when (if?!) they convert my cab to FTTP?I know at some point a new 'bullet' will appear on the pole opposite my house (I'm assuming that's how it will be fed, as there are no poles or BT chambers my side of the street), but apart from that can I expect to see other activity? The cab is due to go 100% FTTP, so no new FTTC cab expected.
