Trying to get any details on FTTP is impossible.


[link to this post]
 
The exchange near mine was listed by BT as in the Fibre rollout some time ago however it was one of the few to be marked as FTTC/P. Now, the majority of my friends will get FTTC and the checkers reflect this. For the few that can't due to their cabinet not being done I decided to try and comfort their disappointment by checking if they could get FTTP. I then just generally tried to find a FTTP checker but it seems almost impossible.

Getting details on FTTC but there is nothing for FTTP.

Has anyone found a way of checking what postcodes/phone numbers on a FTTC/P exchange will get FTTP?

Exchange is Prudhoe (NEPH) if anyone's interested.

The December 2011 data shows lots of FTTC, lots of Exchange Only and lots not scheduled. No mention of FTTP. That's the latest in the public domain. Where did you get your info?

There is a July issue that does have a lot more info, but I don't have access to it.

Shows the type of fibre and planned date.

Most listed as FTTC but some are FTTC/P and others only FTTP.

The Dec 2011 document does only seem to cover FTTC. If you filter to FTTP then only one exchange shows up.

There are no FTTP cabs planned for that exchange, and the cabs are planned for Phase 8a (now) so it should not be long now.

Yes, because no cabinet needed an FTTP service.

Right, so it's actually only an FTTC exchange then.

In which case why do BT bother marking some exchanges as FTTC/P and then not install any FTTP services?

Odd, maybe I have a dodgy document.

Have you got a link to the full version you could PM me?

I expect with you talking about filtering you are using the Fusion Database that someone else , (Moradin perhaps), produced from the raw csv files. That Fusion file omits all EO and non-scheduled rows, though I didn't know it had any problems with FTTP.

You need both csv's.

When I used Open Office Calc on the previous data it worked but with a very messy layout. When the December stuff came along I had Excel here and that is fine.

Your data on there isn't going to change of course.

Some exchanges will have some FTTP. The exchange I'm connect to has a small area of about 50 premises which will be getting FTTP.
