Ahead based on their original announcements. Obviously some exchanges have been delayed. Which is why you see noise and disappointment on here.

Generally speaking it could be, but there are a lot of exchanges behind schedule , they release dates then change them several times in a lot of areas, the way that they are going about it doesn't always follow logic , my exchange is scheduled for June this year so far no NGA related work has been carried out here

All depends on how much manpower is available in your area, why different areas across the country are ahead of the rollout and others behind, its a best speed approach, which BT swtiched to early on in the rollout as they encountered all of the delays.

The figures were part of their last financial report, and misleading shareholders and stock market will win no friends, so chances are they are correct.

26 million homes in the UK, so no surprise so many still moan about the rollout

Marketing BS i think.

True perhaps in the sense of their revised dates.. but when you look at the openreach targets, they have all been delayed.

i bet if you queried all the people who were watching for when it was due, and asked them when it actually occured, there would be a big gap in the majority of cases.

Everyone will get it eventually over the next few years anyways.

Are they not talking about the upgrade making 80/20 available rather than FTTC in general??
That's how it reads to me.

I think that there has been a revision in te ratio of FTTP:FTTC, as there are far more FTTC cabs around SMCO. I don't think there has been as much publicity. This is how they achieve their numbers ahead of schedule. They simply aren't rolling out as much FTTP, hence less man hours required to achieve target coverage.

There's what... 24mill households in the UK? They've covered 10mill of them. Their target is 90% by 2015 = 21.6mill by 2015.
The rollout began when... July 2009? Covered 34 months so far. 30 months left til 2015. Or 42 months til end of 2015. Let's go with 42 months for purposes of making sense of their claim.

So they're 44% into the programme (lasting til end of 2015).
They've covered 46% of their target.

It therefore appears that they have covered a higher percentage than the time spent in their programme.

However, I'd suggest that a lot of households so far covered are in more urban areas with an easier infrastructure to work with. It might start to drag out a bit when they are pulling many miles of fibre cabling through blocked ducts alongside farmers fields in the rural areas.

That'd be my sceptical interpretation of the stats and their claims.

I also think targets are based on exchanges enabled which probably is ahead of schedule.

The 100's of cabinets that are delayed are not really mentioned.
