FTTPoD is not native FTTP. Nearly all people who can get FTTC can have FTTPoD, but the costs are horrendous for domestic users.

There are only two or three ISPs who will supply it. Openreach charge them at least £1100 installation, and £1188pa rental for the first three years. After which it goes down to FTTP rental prices.

Then you may have a wholesaler in-between Openreach and the ISP, both of them adding a profit margin before you are charged, plus Vat.

Still interested?

Looking at the old v new (current) Openreach pricing for the 330/30 mbps FTTPoD service, does anyone know why OR decided to almost triple the annual rental and almost double the distance based construction charges? If anything, these charges should decrease over time, not increase as the number of fibre aggregation nodes gets bigger and closer to homes/businesses.

Also i believe OR have improved their FTTP/oD deployment methods such as using connectorised fibre links therefore removing the need to install a Customer Splice Point (CSP) outside the customers premises, which again should reduce costs not increase them.

Why? To dissuade the many 'walter mitty' types flooding them with requests, i.e. when a company has limited resources you can manage it by increasing the price of a product to dissuade all but those willing to pay any price.

In time perhaps once the race to 95% is over pricing may come down, since more resources freed up and with recruitment more staff available to handle the requests both in planning and implementation

I agree with you over FTTPoD rip off of keep increase rental charge, installation charge. That's why many ISP aren't interesting. Only the FTTC or FTTP (if available)

It's a bit scandal to be honest! I think when G.Fast release nationwide then I think FTTPoD will match FTTP price.

Dont see that happening. FTTPoD is always going to be more expensive than an area which only offers FTTP.

I can't see that happening. If they dropped FTTPod to the same price as FTTP then too many would order it. As stated above it looks deliberately overpriced so they get away with saying the options there, but expensive enough to deter most from ordering.

Adsl max Gfast will be deployed where it makes commercial sense for the business to dep[oy it (how national that becomes is a commercial decision) FOD wont be the same as native FTTP otherwise it would be native FTTP and not FOD
