FTTP on Demand


[link to this post]
 
Whats the current status with FTTP on demand? Is it still in pilot stage or can every FTTC enabled cab customer start to order FTTPoD now from ISPs?

Regards

May be a silly question but if you have fibre on demand installed does phone and broadband run over fibre optic, or do you keep copper for the phone and fibre for the broadband?

It depends whether your voice service provider leaves you on metallic pair based service (WLR3 or MPF) or moves your service to Fibre Voice Access.

If there's a usable metallic pair in place, there's no real advantage in moving to Fibre Voice Access - though if you do, the voice service is provided from a port on the ONT, not over an incoming metallic pair.

I asked because I was wondering about line rental, it doesn't seem to make much sense to pay rental for both a copper and fibre line when it could all go over fibre.

Copper + FTTP is about the same price as FTTP with Fibre Voice Access (though FVA supports two lines)

Very little in it at this time, until more retailers get into the Openreach FTTP game it is hard to say much

It is also theorectically possible to have just the FTTP BB access and not take the FVA service. Not sure if any ISP does this yet.

The price for just BB seems to be the same as that for BB with the FVA service from Openreach, but the ISP may not add on any Voice extras.

Still can't find anyone apart from BtRetail offering the FTTP service yet.

FTTP on Demand for every FTTC cabinets (I don't think so) it will be most exchanges not not all of it. BT decided which exchanges is a good profit of FTTPoD

FTTP on Demand is built on demand, and costs vary depending on cost of construction. Zero reason at all for BT to be selective about where they deploy it once they've the staff trained up, etc, to install in a timely fashion.
