What does this mean?


[link to this post]
 
I have been looking at the page for my post code on "FTTC Chec - BT Superfast Broadband Cabinet Availability Checker". It quite rightly has me down as cabinet 1 (actually via sub-cabinet 1/1) which is 4km away from my house. The exchange and the cabinet is due to be fibre deployed as part of the Suffolk BDUK with the exchange being done calender year 2014. Sub-cabinet 1 /1 feeds about 60 houses altogether.
The part which is puzzling me is that under the heading "Phase" it has FTTP. Does this mean that there is a real possibility that I might get FTTP as in fibre to the premises? That would be wonderful but I hardly dare hope or does it have another meaning?

Which exchange and cabinet, may be able to check.

FTTP tends to be later in the project phases and the plans can change so don't bank on anything just yet.

Hi Andrew,
Any data welcome

ESAG ( Gargunnock)
No Cab, on a EO line
FK8 3BJ ( next door , literally to exchange, could lob a 10M cat 6 and it would hit the exchange roof)

Presume you meant ESGAG which is the code for Gargunnock

Okay the postcode is split across two EO line clusters, one is slated for FTTP via the Scottish project and the other is not currently.

So a 66% chance you will get FTTP if current plans go ahead

And I know that they are putting in a PCP to cover the other EO lines on the postcode, ( albeit slowly) Promising
Thanks

For me Boxford Exchange EABFD Cabinet 1 via sub-cabinet 1/1.

I suppose FTTP could also be fibre to the pole which would also be good but not counting on anything. Any info gratefully received.

FTTP IS NOT FIBRE TO THE POLE.
FTTRN is more likely to be the acronym, FTTP is JUST Fibre to the Premises.

Boxford is showing as all postcodes on Cabinet 1 as getting FTTP (no dates and will warn that plans can change)
FTTC for cab 2 & 3
No plans for cab 4 yet (maybe later phase of course)
No plans for the EO lines, again maybe a later phase

Thank you so much for finding out that information for me Andrew.

While noting your caveat about time and plans can change I can't help but feel a little buzz of excitement! If it does happen it is far far better than I would have dared hope for!
Long wait I suspect, gotta be patient and temper that excitement but very pleased.
