Anyone run a campaign to get FTTCH


[link to this post]
 
Hi, our parish (rural) is served by 3 exchanges and a few cabs. The exchanges are at various states but we are putting together a group to try and get some superfast going.

Has anyone done this? Where do you start? We are are currently doing a recon of who is connected to what and what the possibilities are. Is there anyone at BT who you can get in touch with to go to the next step? What I really want to know is what is there in terms of ducting etc. and how big a job it is going to be to get some fibre out to the cabs.

Does your county have a BDUK project - if outside the commercial footprint, that should usually be the next port of call.

Hi Andrew, what do you call the 'commercial footprint'? We are in Devon and 2 of our exchanges are market 2, one of them market 1. I see there is a project underway down here.

I need to find out things like if the exchange is market 2, is there any possibility of public money to pull fibre to the cab (already ducted we think).

Market designation is irrelevant and they are out of date

90% fibre coverage announced in Jan expect details of areas anytime. New gov target of 95% by 2017 means even more likely.

So yes good chance of public money

The "org.uk" is a funny site. Someone went to all the trouble to put together a *huge* rant at BT, then left it untouched for 2 years.

Some people are strange...

Answering the two questions in order yes, with success, and in your case you don't, you're too late.

The publicly funded BDUK schemes referred to elsewhere are your best bet.

Thanks, could you expand on 'you are too late'? Could you maybe briefly explain why this would be?

BT have decided which cabinets they are doing and their commercial deployment, the one that you would be campaigning to get your cabinets onto, ends in March 2014.

It takes around a year from planning to delivery of cabinets. BT aren't going to add new cabinets to the commercial deployment now as they wouldn't deliver them in time so the publicly funded programmes are your best bet.
