FTTC Sudbury Rollout


[link to this post]
 
BT are all over Sudbury, Suffolk at the moment laying cables to FTTC Cabinets (that have been there for about 6 months). Does this mean they are (finally) connecting power up to the cabinets?

It sounds like their where multiple blockages in the underground ducts, which cause long delays for the fibre tubing to be laid (is black in colour), once this is laid then fibre will be blown through it to the cabinets.

Power to the cabinets is installed by the local power company or sub contactors working for them, as they are a seperate company their progress can be very slow and does slow the overall progress of the rollout.

Openreach engineers then work on the connectors in the cabinets and then it goes over to testing for a few weeks before being ready for live.

The Power Companies can usually provide power withing 7 days prpovided BT give the required notice to them. 90% of power delays are down to BT who seem unable to schedule anything.

Have a look at this post, as the information is from a Openreach manager on part of the rollout.
It shows the multiple problems that Openreach face in their rollout of FTTC and of interest is the delay of up to 6 weeks for Power.

In my nearest town cabinets that have been installed wait upwards of 6 weeks before power is installed.

You continually spout rubbish.

1. For simple works we can complete your connection within 6-8 weeks of receiving your request. Sometimes we need to work in the public highway and it can take up to three months to get the necessary permits.

The Power Utlity companies will install the Power to the BT schedule originally supplied to them. The Utility companies have an SLA and usually achieve a 97% adhereence to the schedule.The delays are more likely down to BT as their schedule is like shifting sand

What bit of wehat I said is rubbish. THat is the power companies SLA. BT have or sothey claima rollout schedule.They need to give the power companies the approriate notice. So they need to give the Uility copanies a minimum period of notice of 8 weeks and if it involves highway works it is 3 months.
