Fibre On Demand


[link to this post]
 
Has there been any further news on Fibre On Demand for FTTC enabled areas?

Last I heard was Spring 2013 so not a million miles away maybe...

Not that I am aware of.

No guarantee to get it, as it is only FTTC enabled areas. Not every cabinet will be fibre-enabled, and those with lines directly from the exchange are probably not included in the upcoming fibre-on-demand either.

Love to think otherwise, but surely this will be serously expensive (at least by the standards of home connections).

Although i should be paid more than BT's sales guys...

What they should do, is offer new 5 year FTTP contracts. @ £50 per month.

lets say the install cost of FTTP is £1500, at the top end of the scale you mention. £25 a month over 5 years pays for that cost. the other £25 is the data.

Win for the customer, £50 a month is not so bad.

Win for the ISP, they have a customer tied to them for 5 years.

I would sign on the dotted line tomorrow.. smile

I don't think many residential users would sign a 5 year contract!

Why not? Plenty of people are signing 20 year contracts for the subsidised installation of solar panels.
