At least they are not describing the cities as Gigabit cities which places like Peterborough and York already are

I have memories of Homechoice mentioning 2Gb broadband. This was actually a reference to the 2 1Gb backhauls at the exchange.

However at least they actually built with rings, which is uncommon now for cost purposes. IPTV services, telephony services now can happily be at the end of 10+ exchange daisy chains with zero resilience on the circuits between exchanges or their termination.

Eventually of course means by 2020, so hence why I am a bit more pragmatic about saying good news for consumers.

If you live in a flat above a shop on a high street, or as with some science parks that have a little bit of new build linked alongside then yes hope is sooner rather than later.

*** Start of Rant ***
All this just makes me laugh, like we have all the FTTP hardware installed and only one home 4 doors down that is connected to our phone pole and using our FTTP hardware can and is using FTTP, yet BTOR say not available.

So if they cannot even make a completed install that is live available for the lines in that chamber there is probably no chance in them installing FTTP by 2020.

I am getting rather fed up seeing other areas that are a lot harder to reach get fibre when our install that has been completed since December 2011 which is live due to a single home using it, to be fobbed off by BT and BTOR.

And to make thing worse, BT (our ISP) and Openreach are no longer answering my emails.
*** End of Rant ***

We have been very patient about all this, but enough is enough, BT are taking the [censored] mick, they all know its live and they all just lie about it and keep fobbing us all off, and when we prove its all live they all go quiet and no longer respond to us.

BT confirms FTTP for the following areas, whether it will come to my part of Bath, we will have to wait & see.

* Bath
* Bradford
* Bristol
* Liverpool
* Manchester
* Salford
* Westminster, Holborn and the City (London)

Presumably people who have FTTP today will be able to get 1Gbps if we want it? The physical FTTP rollout in these new areas is not more capable than other FTTP rollouts?

Thanks!

I wouldn't bank on it. I'd expect there to be differences in the head end and splitter hardware

Presumably the head end is relatively easy to change but the splitter hardware is underground at some point so difficult/expensive to change?

Having got FTTP connected on the basis that I would be future proofed, I will be quite annoyed if I don't have the option for the maximum speed (in case I ever need it!)

But in that worst case, not having taken FTTP now would have made no difference.

Also interested in Bath.

Wondering if the bit about Bristol and Bath technology hub means they're only doing that or if anything in the cities is being done too?
And whether the bit about "businesses that donít have access to fibre broadband from Openreach today" means they won't bother with the FTTP if there's existing FTTC nearby?

On the FTTC nearby, this most likely means that cabinets serving industrial areas (which are often smaller in terms of lines and a worse speed profile than a residential area) which are not enabled yet, may skip FTTC and be straight FTTP areas.

In reply to a post by Ignitionnet:
The biggest economy in Yorkshire is by quite some way Leeds, Openreach smile


Despite being the place in 1984 where BT installed the very first blown fibre between exchange buildings quite honestly Openreach couldn't give a monkeys chuff about even completing 'universal' FTTC in Leeds let alone anything better. Sure they'll jump at the chance to wire up the endless newbuild ghettos and premises by the river with broadband x times faster than the speed of light but go a few miles out and the coverage is very patchy. Some places might have beardy broadband but that is a monopoly and there are many that to this day refuse to line the pockets of those that systematically destroyed perfectly fine pavements with their cable network all those years ago.
