More FTTPoD Areas?


[link to this post]
 
I have noticed I can now get FTTPoD on the BT Checker, and looking at other addresses in the local area they get the same result.

Has the list of exchanges/cabs offering FTTPoD been expanded?

It seemed to be released fairly recently. My exchange now has it. However, hardly anyone offers the service and the few that do seem to only offer it to businesses. Combine that with the cost and contract term and it is beyond most people's reasonable consideration.

All exchanges which support native FTTP now also offer FTTPoD.

Its not cheap and there's currently only 1 ISP offering the Openreach based On Demand product, fluidone.com. There really should be more but I think many ISPs are still reeling from their poor experience dealing with OR when they began selling FoD-v1 back in 2013, such as Gradwell, AAISP and Zen just to name a few. Even relatively simple installs were taking > 12 months. However things have now changed, I believe OR now use connectorised fibre links for FTTP(oD) greatly reducing labour time, ie less need for fibre splicing and no need for a Customer Splice Point (CSP) anymore.

I placed my FTTPoD order with Fluidone in Feb, all but 30m of the route has been laid and tested. My estimated completion date (ECD) is 16th May, touch wood.... smile

From reading the other thread it appears plain sailing thus far...

Do you mean all that support FTTC now ...?

I believe the majority of the bigger (eg head end) exchanges support FTTP. Its possible your exchange has FTTP feeds from neighbouring areas.

The exchange where the fibre from your FTTC cab terminates also has to support FTTP eg
https://www.samknows.com/broadband/exchange/nsimd

though Samknows isn't always up to date so you may still be able to order FTTPoD.

Totally pointless FTTPoD, it's appeared on the checker for me,on Kingsmead Exchange,Bath, & I'm in a small village only a couple of miles from exchange, & very few peeps can afford it.
Much better if we could have had FTTP instead, at least more ISP's offer packages.

I think you are confused. FTTPoD has been shown as available on nearly all FTTC cabinets for years, on exchanges with no known FTTP.

The exchange you just linked to is one of those that has some areas on FTTC and some on FTTP. There are also a few cabinets in the country where end users have a choice of FTTC and native FTTP, as opposed to FTTC and FTTPoD.

I think it highly unlikely that any pure FTTP (cabinet) areas also offer FTTPoD. What would be the point? Why would anyone take a 3-year contract with a minimum 4-figure installation charge and rental of well over £100pm when they can get native FTTP?

Wrong. Until Jan/Feb of this year the BT/OR checker was definitely NOT showing FTTPoD as available to nearly everyone in an FTTC area. It appears Openreach have now lifted the restriction (probably d/t the high no. of enquiries they received from CPs) and will allow anyone to order it providing they are in an FTTC enabled area and their exchange (or head end exchange) supports it. Hence why on TBB you now get regular posts along the lines of the OP's.
