Connection on TalkTalk wholesage fibre


[link to this post]
 
I am on a LLU ADSL connection running on the TalkTalk network.

I am interested in going to fibre since my cabinet has just been enabled. As far I have been told, TT have not yet released their wholesale fibre. So wondering if anyone has any info on when this might be.

Regards

not sure what you mean. I've got TalkTalk fibre being activated tomorrow and i'm already on TalkTalk LLU.

TalkTalk Fibre runs off BT wholesale.

Incorrect, TalkTalk fibre does not use BT Wholesale it uses Openreach and then at the exchange handover node the traffic joins the TalkTalk LLU backhaul network

talk-talk have to order and pay for a gea-link cable at the exchange before they can offer FTTC on your cab/exchange.
(Not sure if these cables are required per cabinet or per exchange)

Cable is just per exchange and it links the GEA kit to the TalkTalk backhaul hardware

Just keep checking gdavid.

When an exchange is enabled that is normally when BT Wholesale has bought a link off Openreach as per this post and MrSaffron's reply to that.

Sky and TalkTalk can take a week or so to get theirs in. Just occasionally, they don't bother.

Think the OP wants to know if /when ISPs/ resellers of the talk talk llu network will be able to offer FTTC services over the talk talk network.

Ah, it can be read that way. I took it to mean at his exchange, rather than nationwide.

TalTalk FTTC is available from resellers. Several users of these forums are on it with Pulse8broadband. I considered it, and may move to it in a few months.

Talk Talk took almost two years to get the cable link installed at my local exchange by which time they had lost a large number of customers to BT, Sky and others.

Yes - correct.

The info I have been given is that TT have not released their wholesale fibre. I think it is L2TP which gives resellers full control of the connection. Those that are offering TT are using a TT IP address.
