BT Wholesale FTTPoD Price


[link to this post]
 
Openreach announced their price increases for FTTPoD a few weeks ago but no ISP I have spoken to has been able to get an updated price from BT Wholesale who they order through. Has anyone heard anything about this?

I've never even seen prices published on an isp's website. Surely somebody must be selling it by now.

Given that any price will depend on your particular location, from the cabinet, I can't see how anyone could quote a blanket price.

The installation price is dependent upon the distance from the cabinet and is generally a pass through from Openreach so that is known. What is not known is the monthly price - Openreach increased the monthly price for the three year contract but BT Wholesale won't tell anyone what their monthly price is. As a result, ISPs who previously could provide a price for the service cannot do so anymore.

Dozens of ISPs sell it.

AAISP pulled their prices and are no longer selling it.

That isn't quite correct. FTTPoD is not fed from the cabinet, but from the aggregation point that feeds the cabinet. So may be closer to or further away from the user than the FTTC and PCP cabinets

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 59.4/14.4Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

I chased a number of ISPs for prices before BT Wholesale increased their prices - two were able to give me a price and both are now unable to do so because BT Wholesale won't tell them their price. I haven't gone back to other ISPs who were unable to quote before. I would be interested in who these "dozens" are, bearing in mind that we are talking about FTTPoD, not regular FTTP....

Sorry - loose language before - I should have said distance from the aggregation point.

Anyway, it doesn't seem like anyone else has heard of an updated monthly price from BT Wholesale?

I'd also be interested in seeing that list. I'm only familiar(vaguely) with what Plusnet are doing.
