Fibre on demand now available


[link to this post]
 
I've notice fir bee on demand is now available to my house

Is it possible to get the line swapped to fttp but remain on an 80/20 product?

I appreciate big install cost, but my copper line is [censored] so would be good to make full use of 80/20

Do a search for some other FTTPoD posts here. It's not as easy as it sounds. I think there are potentially very high costs for this.

See my recent FoD experience here. Another user's experience here but that's going back a few years when installs were taking months/years.

Currently the Openreach FoD product is only available in the 330/30 Mbps variant, though technically you could take out a lower speed (80/20 or 40/x) FTTP service on the second/third/fourth ports on the Openreach ONT.

Thanks babyfrog, good post.

I don't mind the construction charges but obviously they are apportioning some of the cost in the monthly fee which is a none starter for me.

Maybe things will change over time
