FTTP Multi Dwelling Units (Apartments / Flats)


[link to this post]
 
All,

Since BT are now indicating their intention to install FTTP into areas with information on the checker does anyone know the situation for flats/apartments.

Here in Milton Keynes we have an area which will be FTTP (confirmed by BT multiple times) which has an ETA of March (which their going to overshoot IMHO) but only houses are returned by the checker. Flats are indicated as not getting FTTP.

The normal reaction from people is well they better put in FTTC but we all know that isn't what BT do.

Is it normal practice (like during the trial) for BT to do houses first then release flats at a later date? Is the reason for this the extra delay the extra survey information that is required?

Anyone know?

Regards,


Gareth

I don't "know" but I would expect that Openreach need a wayleave agreement with the MDU landlord to run new infrastructure in there - the phone lines presumably exist and can be converted to FTTC but FTTP will involve drilling etc.
