FTTP (future)


[link to this post]
 
I know that BT are trial FTTP in most area, but if u placed an order for FTTP, does it mean that it must have BT Openreach specialist engineer to installing FTTP at the property as they probably won't let any third party engineers to do this job?

If you area is FTTP ready then as far as I know, the only engineers trusted with splicing are Openreach employees.

Happy to be corrected though. There's an engieer or two on here who I'm sure will be able to confirm or otherwise smile

If the previous occupant (if not a new build) has had FTTP then it should just be a phone call to activate service. Similarly if it is newbuild, lots of developers have the kit ready installed for move in day, in either case you wouldn't need an engineer visit.

And if a new build the developer may have ignored prepping for FTTP.

See my post a minute ago max. Have you checked it is actually available at the property? Not just the area, and not just what the BTW estimator says.
