FTTPoD is listed as available for the business line and the grant would cover most of the install but I understand the ongoing costs are likely to be very high. We don't need 330/30 though, we would be happy with 80/20. I heard people on FTTP lines are charged a normal amount for such speeds.
Is there any company doing FTTPoD but charging reasonable monthly charges for access as though it was plain FTTP?
As RobertoS says, you can only get the 330 product with a 3-year tie-in. However, once the 3 year period is up, the line is treated like any standard FTTP line - so those cheaper, slower, products become available to you.
I suspect that the (very) high installation cost, as incurred by Openreach, is only partially recovered from the customer with the installation fee. The rest is then recovered from some of the high monthly fee.
With grants available, you'd think that they'd adjust the charging models so that the full installation cost could be recovered as part of the grant, leaving standard monthly products available.
The picture with BT's FTTPoD is very cloudy at present. Strictly, the product isn't being offered because installation times are too long, using too many engineers - so it actually costs them even more than they are charging - and installation queues become untenable. The high monthly fee could have been a deliberate disincentive to keep order levels low, so that they can handle the level of demand.
BT are trialling new installation methods to cut these times down - these trials are running in parallel with the G.Fast trials, and it isn't clear if these new methods will only occur alongside a G.Fast rollout.
Meanwhile, BT have agreed to re-open FTTPoD in Wales only, but we haven't really seen this become properly available through the higher wholesale and retail channels.
