Re: My Fluidone FTTPoD install experience


[re: Rastus] [link to this post]
 
Interesting comment, since the Infinity packages listed are all unlimited, that drop down is common to all packages, since there are some sold that do have limits involve.

So question to wider audience, does including that on an individual package page make everyone think there is a usage limit (purpose originally was to allow system to the maths on packages that have usage limits)

In areas where the choice has been made to deploy a similar speed natively, i.e. accept the longer term payback then prices are very different e.g. https://www.thinkbroadband.com/isps/bt/packages/ultr... still not as cheap but a lot cheaper than FoD
.


I'd say that coupled with the relatively low download allowances listed in the 'Select usage profile' drop-down list, take-up would be severely limited.


I agree I assume those are daily figures - if monthly at 65GB what's the point
A few 4K movies from netflix and your screwed

Not investing in our comms infrastructure is like not investing in our railways.... oh wait we already made that mistake.

FYI my French connection in UNLIMTED. As Orange France said when I asked "why would we care smile" Well they actually said "C'est sans conséquence"

Most of the packages are unlimited. That selection is for search purposes not an example of what the packages offer.

Now if the SX300 is totally locked down even at the console then that is another matter.

Like you, my exchange (NDBRI) currently doesn't have FTTPoD support but fluidone sales have confirmed that BT will open it up (should be this week). I'm assuming that the DSL checker will be updated to say FTTP on Demand when it does - I keep checking out the postcode/phone number of the house but not changed yet.


NDBRI is now accepting FoD orders. Just did a random search eg Florries Tea Shop, 96 High St, Bridge, CT4 5LB on the BT Adsl checker and the 330/30 service is now showing up smile

You didn't mention in your post here, but have elsewhere that your exchange was not initially listed as having FTTP on Demand support.


As good as their word, Fibreone contacted Openreach, and now - as of this morning - my exchange NDBRI is listed as ready for FTTP on Demand.

Looks like my barriers to delivery are dropping away

You might find the BT Openworld are not exactly the folk you want Fibreone to chase. wink

Which ONT did they install? Does it have 4 data ports and 2 FVA?

Openreach are going to cease to provide the 4 data port Huawei ONT HG8240 soon. They will be only providing a 2 data port ONT (still with 2 FVA points).

Edit: Zarjaz might be able to say if he's seeing the new ONTs already.
