FTTPoD stop sell lifted!


[link to this post]
 
Seeing as BTWholesale has now lifted the stop sell on FTTPoD products, is there any idea on any ISP's planning to sell FTTPoD to business/consumer clients?

I'm with Zen and tried them to install but they weren't interested.

They were happy to quote me several thousand pounds to install and >£600/month for a 20Mb leased line but not interested in installing fibre on demand.

Not interesting really. I do hope many more isp's will telling BTW not interesting (too expensive, not worth it for residential customers)

Best to wait for the cheaper one - the G.Fast in 2017 330/30 rather than FTTPoD.

Zen is correct to say not interesting.

Depends on what you're after and if you want a rate not dependant on line distance.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

I'm not a residential customer but I cant justify >£600/month for a leased line.

It is my own opinion that the main reason ISPs are not offering this is that fibre on demand makes a mockery of their super expensive leased line offerings.

Does anyone know why Openreach charge ISPs obscene amounts in monthly costs for FTTPoD in addition to the construction costs? Once a customer has paid £1000s to have the FTTPoD infrastructure in place to their doorstep, then surely the monthly cost of supplying FTTPoD costs the same as native FTTP and should be priced as such? Last time i checked, ISPs were quoting > £300 per month for a FTTPoD service, in addition to construction costs which obviously would put many residential punters off.

Maybe that's what they want to do - however based on the fact that FTTP/H/B can add 10-20K to a house value if I was selling and I could get it then I would before doing so.

The three year contract being a slight hiccup there

While FoD is up to 300 Mbps, remember to only compare the 40 (or is it 80) Mbps commit rate over the Openreach segment when comparing to leased lines.

i.e. its an 80 Mbps service with burst to 300 Mbps
