In my search for a new home, seeing what the predictive speeds for broadband would be is important to me especially as my search is in semi rural areas . So seeing that a new apartment was prewired for FTTP was just the ticket.
Are you saying that this is a new-build, with the developer telling you that it has been pre-wired for FTTP?
Or have you made this assumption because you saw the FTTP-on-demand product on the DSL checker?
As others have said, the area is natively an FTTC one, so wouldn't have the simple, native GEA FTTP products available. In existing properties, you can only order FTTC, and have been able to do so since April 2011.
In such circumstances, FTTP-on-demand is being rolled out as an alternative - but is priced for businesses, with £thousands for installation and £hundreds per month, minimum 3 years.
However, if the apartment is new-build, it could certainly be true that the developer has organised a pre-installation of FTTP with Openreach. This would go beyond our understanding of the norm, and would probably not show on the DSL checker yet either.
