I did some more digging; on the outskirts of the town, some properties are connected to a cabinet but only have the option for FTTP - there is no option for FTTC. Is that a typo or can you have situations where FTTP is only available even if you're connected to a enabled cabinet?
If the phone line is connected to an FTTC enabled PCP, (phone cabinet), that has an FTTC cabinet nearby that merges the FTTC feed with the phone circuit and return the result to the phone cabinet for onward connection to the premises.
If the phone line is connected to an FTTP enabled PCP, the PCP plays no part in the fibre provision. The fibre is fed direct to the premises from an underground chamber. (Aggregation point). It's all sorted out at the premises.
Then there is FTTPoD, (FTTP on Demand). This was available from some FTTC-enabled cabinets, and may still show as such. Provision/Sales are on hold while cheaper ways of doing it are researched. When that was provided the method was basically as per FTTP, but the civil engineering works involved become directly chargeable to customers. Way outside normal domestic costs.
The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.
