FTTC/Market 1


[link to this post]
 
I am on a market 1 exchange with no LLU, should have FTTC next spring. Just curious what ISP's I would be able to get once it is available, like how about Sky or Talk Talk ?

Neither I'm afraid frown, unless they LLU it by then.

All other ISPs that offer BT Wholesale based FTTC. It's fine! Just not quite as cheap as the bottom end Sky and TT offerings. Their top end ones aren't cheap.

Don't assume the FTTC goes to your exchange. Its quite possible that Openreach will run the fibres to another nearby exchange - so you would have to ask Sky and Talk Talk directly once your phone number shows fibre available on the BT wholesale checker. (link on the front page of this site).

AIUI Sky do not provide FTTC at exchanges they have not LLU'ed even if the fibre headend is LLU'ed, because the customer would not be able to have LLU phone. I'm fairly sure the same applies to TalkTalk.

Ok, thanks.

That's a shame. Not sure if I would go with them but it's always good to have the choice.

Dragging up an old thread since a relative is getting FTTC soon on a Market 1 exchange.

On a different Market 1 exchange to theirs, TalkTalk refused to offer any products for sale, fibre or ADSL. Interestingly however, although Sky refused to offer ADSL, it was happy to offer fibre. Even better, the price is the same as on their LLU exchanges, including the new £10 fibre product.

So it does look like Sky is offering fibre on Market 1 exchanges.

It is not that exchange is market 1, it depends on where the fibre handover is and willingness of an ISP to use WLR for voice.

Or it was the case that Sky LLU was available but TalkTalk not, which can happen.

Well the second point comes as a result of the exchange being Market 1, i.e. Sky not having their own equipment in the exchange.

Or it was the case that Sky LLU was available but TalkTalk not, which can happen.

I can't imagine that Sky withdrew ADSL for sale if the exchange has Sky LLU. If Sky has started to replace ADSL availability with fibre, that would be an interesting news story in itself.

Did not say Sky have withdrawn ADSL. Market 1 definitions are so out of date they can be wrong for many exchanges.

Then in that case the Sky availability checker should have offered both FTTC and ADSL, and not just FTTC.
