FTTC Rollout in Brentford


[link to this post]
 
My exchange is now enabled and a number of cabinet's in the area have now been enabled, however according to the December PCP my cabient hasn't even been allocated a phase yet.

TW8 9RN, Isleworth, P75

Is it possible to find out if that has changed in subsequent PCP plans?

This is mainly as I am looking to move ISPs but given my line length my current poor sync speed so I will want to move to FTTC as soon as it is availible and would prefer to not have to move twice!

So if it is at least planned in the next few months; I will probably postpone until then, it not then I might has well move twice.

I somewhat doubt that Brentford has been overlooked, instead it is more likely to be one or more cabinets.

BT, being a private company answerable to its shareholders, will only install an FTTC cabinet where they project a reasonable return on their investment. Other reasons for not installing an FTTC twin for a PCP is suspected to be where the cabinet serves a large number of busineses and BT is trying to protect its income from leased lines.

Of the 87 PCP cabinets on the Isleworth exchange listed in the December spreadsheet 39 are planned to have or already have FTTC installed. Installation was scheduled for some in phase 6a (should have been completed some time ago) with the rest in phase 9b. Note that some of the cabs where FTTC is not currently planned serve just one or two postcodes suggesting that they might be in industrial areas.

The latest available is that in the leaked BT spreadsheets from December 2011. ISPs have access to a more recent April 2012 version. You should hopefully be able to find references to this spreadsheet and where a copy can be contained in posts in this forum. I can't remember where I found my copies however the spreadsheets were removed from the site I used shortly after I obtained them.

In December 2011 the spreadsheets showed that of the phone lines in TW8 0PL 98% were connected to PCP P18 and 1% to PCP P70 (the missing 1% is due to rounding) with the bad news being that at that time (Dec 2011) there were no plans to install FTTC cabinets to either P18 or P70. Hopefully these will get picked up when BT starts to infill and update cabs missed out on the first round.
