Just so I have my information correct


[link to this post]
 
I've been told it would not be possible to be connected to the Cab across the road. is this true?

They can route lines for miles over the land but can't take my line from one cab to another 150yds away?

I am still convinced that the markings on my road are for FTTC. They have an X marking a spot with a shape and it's a near place to our CAB. But it's probably not.

My only option would be Cable and I don't want that. I'd rather pay through the nose to get on BT's network.

SO is there no actual way atall!?

Also, on a side note.

I see Sky is going to be using VM for it's connectivity. Does this mean they will have to move their kit out of the BT exchange?

Not quite true.

It cannot be done as "normal practise" but if you are prepared to pay ALL costs involved which might require extra poles and ducting then yes it can, provided there is capacity in the cabinet and on the cable from the exchange.

VM provide links and leased lines etc from BT exchanges. No need for Sky to move.

You'd have to ask for a "network rearrangement", and you might have to pay for the survey for them to even work out what the cost would be.

Don't expect that the cost would be restricted to the 150m between cabinets either. You'd almost certainly need a whole new D-side cable all the way to the house, as I'm sure BT would want to keep the old & new topology separate.

I'm still convinced the marking aren't for FTTC. The cab would be set back in the greenery, and wouldn't need markings on path or road for the cab itself.

What was the cab's status within BDUK/Wales?

Oh, and did BT give a reason for rejecting your friend's offer of £30k?

They would ruin that greenery to put cement down? I thought the pavement would have been easier?

I dont know I am waiting for him to tell me. I just got some rant e-mail this morning about it

VM provide leased lines? Is this a business product?

I'd always though VM was FTTC with a coax 'last mile'

In reply to a post by lewisskinner:

They've done for a long time - its the business division formerly known as 'NTL business' now known as 'Virgin Media Business'. They can even sell business leased lines in towns and areas where there is no VM cable in the ground.

They even sell leased line connectivity to cellular telcos such as EE. You couldn't sell a business product over a congested shared consumer service.

Since Virgin Media have a telecommunications licence, they are allowed to dig the street and run their own in - so no, their VM lines. Cable & Wireless also do the same thing (they're now part of Vodafone group).
