Sorry if it seems that I keep going on about it, but I just have a few quick questions about the Commercial Fibre rollout...
Everyone I talk to BT on the phone or BTOR Engineers that I see working in our pit or up our pole all say the Commercial Rollout has been and gone and even they say we have it pointing to the pit and bottle on pole (and this is BTOR and not one of their sub contractors), but this cannot be due to we are part of it.
If I go by what has been said on here about my fibre install which was halted back in 2011 (part of Phase 05b) in mid install, this may of been down to BTOR concentrating on the BDUK Contracts first, I understand that, but will they come back to finish off the remaining Commercial installs that got halted ?
The waiting is getting longer and longer due to BT keeps getting more and more BDUK contracts.
I am hoping that they do come back to complete what they started back in 2011 due to we are not in an area for BDUK funding and never will due to being part of Greater London which is "covered by extensive commercial deployments
" according to the following document: shared spreadsheet (Google Doc)

I just thought it was strange that half our road got FTTP and we didn't, I would of thought it would of made more sense to finish of the road before putting the commercial rollout on hold to complete the BDUK installs.
There was also a mention on here about possible planning permission due to being in a conservation area, and we cannot have a green cabinet just popping up like that, but see that is where I am confused, we are down for FTTP like the other half of our road so no FTTC cabinet to be installed, so it should be just the matter of installing the fibre tubing and blowing the fibres down to the fibre manifold in BT's Pit by our pole.
So can anyone tell me what's the steps needed for FTTP install to go ahead from start to end, because it must of been fine for the other half of our road?
I have forgotten the last one or two questions, so I will post them when I remember them.
