FTTC (fttp on demand)


[link to this post]
 
A friend of mine has an FTTC directly outside their house (installed against their boundry wall). Do you think there is anyway of getting FTTP? Without waiting for FTTP on demand...

Surely not at any stage until they start replacing all FTTC? Which has to be a lonnnnnggggggggggg way away.

BT are planning to make FTTP on demand commercially available from Spring 2013.

Not just yet; sign for FTTC. But when FTTP on Demand is available then the costs to upgrade will be at the cheaper end of the FTTP upgrade scale.

How much is that? Who knows laugh

Unless it's a fixed price upgrade. Within an extreme length limit as is a normal phone line.

They carefully do not mention a price. You are probabbly talking a few thousand pounds so will probably only be viable for businesses

THey may possibly keep the install price down a bit but load it on to the monthly charge and have something like a 28 month minimum contract

There's been various speculative prices based on Openreach's standard charges and the average time an FTTP install takes, which Openreach has already indicated some time ago. These speculative prices range from £500 to around £2500.

Correct and this is what the new trial will aid in setting, the install price.

It won't be one fixed fee, the distance from cabinet will be a factor in what I believe to be a variable price.
