Hypothetical question


[link to this post]
 
Hi guys
If I get my contractor to fttp all the properties on my estate (400) with all the residents paying for the ducting and blowing: would openreach allow me to connect to their fibre cabinet (on the estate just none of the 400 houses are connected to it) that way the residents can choose their provider?

No

Fttp comes in two flavours

Point to point - as used by b4rn
Gpon as used by openreach

Gpon means a manifold per every 8 homes and fibre splitter per every 4 manifold

Fttp never goes to the cabinet it links to a bigger fibre splitter called aggregation node, usually near to cabinet and that will be already there.

You could install ducting and tubing and new pavement chambers to bt spec following a plan they create and then hand over for them to do the fibre blowing. This reduces costs to openreach and may make it commercially viable.

Presumably Openreach have a contact for builders of this sort of scale to discuss connections to the network who would be happy to describe what infrastructure is required from the builder?

More complicated now the final commercial roll-outs been announced and counties are firming up their BDUK plans but in terms of contact a builder should already have been in touch with BT somehow to inform them about basic copper needs, so same avenue would be the correct starting point.

Failing that the nga.enquiries@openreach.co.uk would be the usual place to start
