Any FTTPoD Examples?


[link to this post]
 
Has anyone heard of any fibre on demand installations? It would be very interesting to hear how BT will actually price the installation - there were a number of open questions following the initial openreach guidance. For example, is it based on the distance to the nearest cabinet (even if you're not connected to it), is it radial distance rather than cable distance, how narrow/strict are the survey requirements (eg telegraph poles and/or underground ducting), etc.

I don't think I have seen any retail package yet so the monthly cost is unknown other than speculation of more than £100 per month? What happens at the end of three years - can you then swap to any fibre tariff offered (ie no differentiation between 'standard' FTTP and FTTPoD)?

Thanks!

£50/month for retail Infinity service


Isn't this just standard FTTP? Will the same BT Infinity 4 be available for FTTPoD installations after you pay the installation costs?

Thanks

Same speeds as FoD and same monthly wholesale price as FoD.

FTTP FoD is the same as GEA-FTTP apart from
1. Install costs
2. 3 year contract

Was meant as a rough idea and not a 100% confirmation of the pricing

Do any ISPs actually offer a FTTPoD product yet? I haven't seen any...

Only as part of bespoke business services that I've seen.

Openreach's comatose paced roll out of it alongside the various weaknesses and issues of the product, many intentional to protect EAD revenues, have led to a fairly lukewarm reception as far as I'm aware.

EDIT: spelling and grammar

I think PlusNet has it as an opt-in trial. I've no idea on cost.

Hope it takes off eventually - at work for example (a smallish business that can't really afford a leased line) they're a long way from the cabinet and get a predicted speed that is not much more than ADSL. Going by the TBB article they'd only have to pay £500-1500 one time fee for FTTPoD to fix that.

Not running at the moment, might be back towards the end of the year.

The usage case you describe is basically the only one I can think of for this product.
