Strange Openreach doc re FTTP


[link to this post]
 
Surely the pictures in Section 2 of this document are wrong? Are there even two different ONTs?

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

Yes there are two ... I have seen pictures of Huawei installs and know that BT used ECI for their original trials and signed a large contract a few years back with ECI. Whether they are still installing, I don't know. That document is actually from 2013 so may or maynot reflect current processes.

Neither of those two boxes look like the one in the current developer's guide for fibre.
http://www.newdevelopments-openreach.co.uk/Developer...

The picture at the bottom of page 2 does seem to show the right ports, on a curvier box than either of those at the top. In fact, the Huawei box looks rather similar to my FTTC modem.

Note, though, that the marketing insert is old, dating back to 2013.

(@ both)
The picture of the ONT in Section 1 is what I expect. Section 2 are the FTTC modems and I'm sure simply should never have been there. Probably a page revamp (copy/paste) error.

I agree the Section 3 pic is correct and will tally will Section 1.

"These are currently either Huawei or ECI models, as shown
in the diagram above and the images left, but the style and
design
may vary"

IE they dont all look the same !

these comments are my own and in no way represent any company that i may or may not be linked too.

Come on Bert. Those are bog standard FTTC modems. Surely there's no way the insides of one of those could be replaced with optical termination kit?

I have that style of FTTP ONT as shown in the new developments guide which was installed back in early 2013.

Would anybody be able to point me towards any pricing information for these services. Just put a deposit down on a new build and got that very 2 page document #pleasantlysuprised smile

If your property is having native FTTP then the 40 and 80 Meg service are identical pricing to the FTTC based services, but two faster options exist.

The choice of retailer is limited as many don't bother with FTTP, so simplest is BT Retail and http://www.thinkbroadband.com/isp/bt.html lists Infinity 1,2,3 & 4 when you click through to BT site it usually will not show 3 & 4 option unless the phone number or address you have entered has live native FTTP available to it.
