Re: Cerberus Fibre Order Updates


[re: mumba] [link to this post]
 
Update 30 October 2017:

Hi All,

I've have another promising update. OR have informed Cerberus that they started their night cabling work on Thursday 26 October.

Cerberus are still waiting on more information from OR which they should get by Wednesday on how they are progressing with this work.

So at least some physical work seems to be taking place and my order is getting real momentum with OR.

I'll update you all shortly, with hopefully good news and not OR excuses about night resources or blocked ducts etc.

Do any of you have any tips of what signs of physical work I can go try and find on my street to assess progress? I know they are running the cable from a cabinet 1km away from my house so I will have to go hunt for it. Might be a great excuse to go for a run. smile

Why would OR give excuses about night resources or blocked ducts? It's in their interest to provide a service to you as soon as possible as they will only earn from your line when it's active and running.

I didn't mean it in a way that implies that OR would do it on purpose just they are a big company and need to manage their night resources. Also about the ducts it's more a dig (excuse the pun) that I will be unlucky and there will be blocked ducts between my house and the cabinet /agg node.

On a serious note OR do seem to be providing as good a service as possible to lay the line as fast as possible. They just have a lot of logistics to deal with and old infrastructure.

Surely this a BIG BLOW for those who recently ordered with Cerberus and FluidOne with all these ridiculously overpriced from Openreach pricing. Feel sorry for them now.

I think you should edit that Max smile. To make it clear the high price is due to Openreach charges, not either of the companies you cite.

Update 31 October 2017

Hi All,

I've had another update today from Cerberus. This time not the best news. So of course as my luck would have it OR have found blockages in their ducts during their work.

So now this means I am going to experience a delay but I have no idea how long. I should get an update in the next couple of days hopefully.

Regarding this new pricing it does feel like a kick in the teeth from OR to those of us that have orders in progress or recently had FttpOd installed.

They have been very vague with how the new installation costs will work but I assume it will be less than the installation costs on the current pricing.

Also it seems the monthly rental will be £60 less that they charge the ISP's. The most significant change seems to be that the contract only has to be 12 months. That's probably the biggest kick in the teeth.

For a single installation, no-one can say for certain until they've got new quotes and compared them to the old quotes.

Agreed, though if we could predict the future I'm sure we'd all have 10 Gbps private leased lines funded by our lottery wins instead of FTTPoD wink

Agreed predicting the future would be a handy skill.

Baby_Frogmella do you have any idea how long blocked ducts delay things normally?
