Youíre missing that the ISP has to be selling a retail FTTP package for you to be able to buy it.

If only there was a telecoms regulator that would encourage the separation of 'means of delivery' from 'products', and you simply order and pay for whatever can be provided by the available infrastructure

It is the various CPís that choose not to offer service over the Openreach FTTP network.....

The excuse Iíve heard offered before is that they donít wish to have to give staff additional training.

But in this instance (an already installed FTTP infrastructure [1]) what involvement that is specific
to FTTP (over FTTC) do the CPs have to get involved with ?

[1] Or even a pre existing FTTP install, that the consumer wishes to migrate from

If the property is FTTP only, with absolutely no copper, you won't be able to order fibre from the likes of Plusnet. The databases differentiate between FTTP/FTTC.
Any supplier who doesn't offer FTTP won't be able to take the order on the 1st place.

No idea where you seen that suggested but it won't work.

They do retail FTTP, but of course as discussed only as a trial for existing customers.

I'm a Plusnet customer, I wonder if there's a loophole there, where I could get the service installed for him in my name ?

As discussed earlier in this very thread, with this suggestion offered.

FTTP 80/20 Mbps
