FTTP


[link to this post]
 
I just looked on the wholesale checker to see if there was any updates on our rubbish but ok 3mb/s internet, to go into the background this is a farm about 1 mile by road to the cabinet and about 0.7km line length that follows the road to the bypass then as the crow flies to the cabinet (number 9 on MYMAL exchange) meaning we have always had rubbish broadband. I then became slightly excited at the result for our number when i realised the FTTP option at the bottom and the FTTC option at the top... Our line is above ground down our lane and i have not noticed any fibre go up on the line so how does this work, can someone explain.

Hi Tom,

You are in range so can get FTTC

FTTP on Demand at the bottom is worked on distance and is very expensive -

Somewhere quite a distance from you is a cabinet that your line is connected to. The fibre was run to that cabinet. FTTPoD involves then running the fibre from there (well, near enough) to your house. As someone else has said over the distance of your line that is very expensive (even short lines are expensive for FTTPoD and involves a 3 year contract generally on a business service).

£750 to even get their attention and then for under 200M it's £200 I think

And from there on pick a star in the sky and put any price you like on it. That's what BT do I am sure

Plus Vat, and under 200m is £350 +Vat on top of that. Subject to survey I think.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 56.4/14.5Mbps @ 600m. - IPv4BQM IPv6BQM

madness. 1 VM line and 2 FTTC lines could do the same for a fraction of the cost.

Assuming you can get VM (which is only available in a couple of towns in the county I live in) and assuming you aren't a reasonable distance from the FTTC cabinet. FTTPoD potentially has best benefits for giving stability on longer FTTC lines but on those is at its most expensive. People with stable fast FTTC would see little benefit from FTTPoD but would get it "cheapest".

Link me where to buy one and I will check the prices out. I'd love FTTP but as I can only get OD which is thousands I had to do just what I put above
