FTTP


[link to this post]
 
Spoke to some BT guy the other day working just outside my house and he said my road is getting FTTP, i find this really strange though as the last guy i spoke too about a month ago said i wasn't getting fibre on my road, i even emailed BT and they said no, is there anyway to check online, he said i should have it by the end of march, i find this further strange though as most of my town has FTTC?.

It is not impossible just probability makes it unlikely

What sort of work were they doing in the street? If black tubing with a yellow stripe and no sign of a fibre cab then it might be FTTP

In terms of spotting kit http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre-milton-keynes/ has a raft of FTTP kit

If FTTC is around, could the BT guy have been referring to FTTPoD?

If I put my phone number into this site it says FTTPoD at 330/30 is available.

There is a cabinet round the corner which says (Fibre is here on it) it isn't really the fact he said i am getting FTTP which bothers me, any kind of fibre would be good, but i asked the other BT guys and they said no my road isn't being done and even the email said it, but i said to them about my road and they was like yep we are doing your cabinet now as i told them my cabinet number, and they was like its even gonna be FTTP too so your get over 300Mb speeds, maybe they was pulling my leg.

This is a big firm. if you speak to a guy fitting modems in peoples houses and a guy fitting fibre tubes in the street, you are highly likely to different answers. The guy who really knows is a planner that is probably a hundred miles away from both of them.

Well the BT guys that i asked was both on the street doing the same job, just the other guys said no i am not getting it and these guys said yep i am getting it and it is FTTP which i am getting, they was like the other guys broke summat so we are here to fix it, then they was like we cant fix it so gonna get someone else out now, so god knows what is happening or even if its the truth that i am getting fibre on my road, hope so as every other road around me has fibre.

The fact that two blokes fitting fibre tubes in the street at the same time gave you two different answers demonstrates my point. The guys will have a job pack that tells them to pull a tube from A to B. It won't mention anything about why! The guys with the big picture are a long way away.

If it's coming, but not yet completely installed, then it won't show as available until it is… I was trying to indicate that they may have been referring to FTTPoD rather than "proper" FTTP.

Strange why they would tell me my road is getting fibre then, maybe they was pulling my leg, but i told them my cabinet number and they was like yeah we are sorting that cabinet out now.
