Shame the reduced pricing isn't for FTTPoD

And I bet BT won't lower their FTTP prices one bit frown
I also wouldn't mind that 50Mbit upstream either LOL

I wouldn't give up hope completely:

Separately, ISPreview.co.uk understands that the same meeting also included discussion about a potentially significant change to the expensive FTTP on Demand (FTTPoD) product. FTTPoD is similar to Openreach’s native “full fibre” FTTP deployments, except it can be rolled out into certain non-FTTP areas following a request, but the end-user needs to pay a significant installation cost to help cover the construction work.

However we understand that the proposed change would involve dropping the price of FTTPoD to match native FTTP, with “project builds” becoming an option for things like estates. The new FTTPoD solution might also adopt ECC charges rather than a distance band with mandatory survey. But take this with a pinch of salt because we don’t yet have the detail and it’s currently only being “considered“.

My guess would be zero.
Apart from the issue that no company can survive by solely selling something at the same price as the cost, it would also be non-functional as one end of the fibre connection would be left dangling in the exchange unless somebody pays for it to be connected to a network.

Eats shoots and leaves.

LOL, no point, most DP's / manifolds down my road are full plus they have run our of fibres.

My phone pole is the only phone pole on my PCP cabinet that can get FTTP, everyone else are down to get FTTC with the next 5 months (I.e. December) even though there is FTTP infrastructure already in the chamber and up the pole.

So they could FTTP up the remaining part of my road due to the splitter node is located at the bottom of my road and leave the side roads for FTTC due to the way the cables are routed.

And there is about 6 fibres left of my phone pole LOL.

Well I was referring to a little decrease in reference to it dropping, so BT would still be making a profit.
