Fibre for new build estate


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

Please forgive the general question, but does anyone have any pointers for finding out if a new build estate will be fibre enabled?

I've asked one of the builders (RedRow) and they haven't been hugely helpful, only saying that they "believe" the estate will be fibre enabled.
The estate in question is here: https://www.redrow.co.uk/developments/coate-at-badbu...
The postcode stated on that page is wrong, the estate is actually being built at: SN3 6AA

A couple of landmarks from around this location are:
The Sun Inn: SN3 6AA - 01793 523292
The Spotted Cow: SN3 6AA - 01793 485832

Both of these postcodes + numbers say that fibre is enabled.
Any idea how I can find more information please? Should RedRow have someone who deals with this?

Thanks in advance,

Zebs

Looks like FTTP is planned, so be prepared for a long wait gtting it.

Does it involve men in suits meeting in a park and picking up the wrong briefcase?

Just about!

However, the process woul be hugely facilitated and quicker if the builder has installed underground ducting to each house, and a number of underground chambers depending on the size of the estate.

If they have, there should be a small pipe up against the wall for a short distance, possibly with a draw cord of some sort.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

I can certainly ask Redrow, thanks.

Any info on FTTC on that estate, please?
Certainly 20-30 Mbps would be fine for me, just don't want to have to drop down to ~2 Mbps.
The estate is a fair distance from the exchange.

See Ribble's earlier reply. No FTTC but instead FTTP in due course.

Ah it's starting to dawn on me that there will be no FTTC as a stopgap until FTTP ?
Is that always the case?

So long wait equates to... years ?

FTTP is Fibre To the Premises. Fibre all the way, and you get the connection speed you sign up to. So 80/20 means just that! 300/30 is the current maximum, but I'm not sure anyone sells that.

Whether on 80/20 you get the full throughput is still an "up to" I'm afraid, but that applies to any connection and also depends on the ISP.
