The other thread has some very confusing replies to a simple Opening Post question.
Not really, the OP in that thread asked "Has the list of exchanges/cabs offering FTTPoD been expanded? " to which the answer is a clear YES, since Openreach have only in the last few months made available FTTPoD to the majority of FTTC users yet you seem to think this has been the case for the last few years
which is incorrect. Only selected exchanges had FTTPoD available until recently and obviously you had to be in a FTTC area. Now its available pretty much in every area where there is FTTC on the condition the exchange also
supports FTTP - which most/many do already. This can be confirmed by doing line checks on the BT/OR checker.
Why does a FTTC exchange need to be FTTP ready in order to support FTTPoD? I imagine support for beefier line cards, higher capacity BT Wholesale backhaul links already in place (ideally 10 gb/s rather than 1gb/s), more space to put in the OLTs etc are just some of the obvious reasons.
