Pay for FTTP to my home


[link to this post]
 
I remember reading a while back that it will be possible for an individual to pay for FTTH/P installation. I was wondering if their was any more information on this.

I am willing to pay for the cost of getting a fibre run from the cabinet to my home, its definitely less then 500m.

Who would do the installation? can it be any ISP or just BT Openreach?

it isn't launched yet, it's called "Fibre on Demand"

ISPs will sell it, Openreach will install and run it.

Great, so I just need it to be released smile I am sure IDNET should provide this from day one, but i have emailed them to find out anyway.

I wish they would provide a more specific date, especially considering spring (if you split go by a season = 1 Quarter) is 3 months, and the best part, in the UK its a moving target as Winter tends to drag on wink

Assume the last possible date of Spring, 20th June 2013.

If like the Quarter holding dates for FTTC cabinets being installed it will slip back a few months to a year or might never happen.

The big quetion is how much of the installation cost for FTTPoD the ISP's will pass on.

Well £1500 will be out of reach for most consumers, and as stated in the original article its more for SOHO/Home workers.

I will be surprised if the cost goes over this amount.

Regarding the dates slipping considering that its Fiber from the premises to the cabinet and the cabinets already are FTTC enabled I can't see the dates slipping, if it was direct from premises to the exchange the probably the dates would slip.

I'm also interested but mainly because I assume fibre optic connections are more reliable than their copper counterparts. I've had my fill of poor ADSL connections. frown
