FTTC or FTTP


[link to this post]
 
Hello,

At G42 9LG, we are served by Langside cabinet 80. Codelook has suggested FTTP build is in progress and due by August 2016, however a large cabinet has been erected next to the smaller existing cabinet. Would this suggest I should actually expect FTTC? The current roadworks are definitely by Openreach.

Thanks,
Ian

There could be a mix depending on network topography.

Plans change, so until it goes live you cannot tell, and even then in some areas some premises get a choice of FTTC or FTTP. Seems more common in projects with EU money to target business, or where FTTC is sub 15 Mbps and contract has a high requirement for over 15 Mbps speeds.

Thank you. This cabinet serves only a residential street which already has 18-20Mbps ADSL2 connections.

So looks like original plans have been changed from P to C

The address list given by putting the postcode into the BTW Address checker gives some strange stuff that I haven't seen before.

Are you referring to the 0/1, 0/2, 1/1, 1/1 2/1, 2/2 &c ? I believe that may be referring to Floor/Apartment where 0/1 means ground floor apartment 1, 2/3 would mean second floor apartment 3
