FTTP, or Openreach fat fingers?


[link to this post]
 
Hello,

I notice that Openreach has updated their exchange lists recently, and it's interesting to note that my exchange (as well as quite a few other Cornish exchanges) now state that they are getting FTTP, not FTTC as it had said previously.

As I have said in a previous thread, my road is getting a new cabinet installed as we speak, and it looks precisely like an FTTC cabinet. But BT's lists now say FTTP. It doesn't say FTTX or FTTC/P like some other places do.

Am I being too wishful and it's just a typo or is BT actually going to deliver fibre to the premises? My road has no new builds to speak of (the village as a whole has some), and AFAIK the phone lines aren't underground - at least from pole to house.

Not sure on that one, I just checked and we are down for FTTP on BTs spreadsheet but we have had a new cabinet installed since the end of August but nothing has been turned on yet.

My guess will be FTTC.

If you don't mind passing on address and phone number, I will enquire of Openreach via BT Wholesale. It may be a mistake that has slipped through or for Cornwall may represent the mixed bag of connectivity that was always going to be deployed
