You probably get a lot of this here so apologies is these are another repeat of those!
With the new FTTPoD pricing that's launching in 2018 which is a massive game changer for me as i'm moving to a new house in Feb in a semi rural location, although annoyingly Virgin have just moved into my current area just as i'm leaving... sods law and all that. I run a home business so this would be quite a decent investment if it proved cost effective, I have funds available to cover the build and install too if need be (within reason).
So my questions are:
1. Is the distance from the aggregation node on a straight line basis or is it down to the distance on the road?
2. Where would the aggregation node be, is the FTTC cab classed as one and would the distance be measured from there if so? Looking at it on streetview, it's a large Huawei cab 0.4 miles from my house, with three chambers below it. If the agg node is further down the line from the cab it's potentially game over.
3. Is the "Fixed Connection" charge a monthly charge or spread over the new minimum 12 months?
4. This may be irrelevant but potentially a contributing factor... I have 0.3 miles away from the potential new home a well known wireless broadband provider in the south east of england headquartered there (masts and all), so if I was to go for FTTPoD hypothetically assuming they have some fibre going on that main stretch of road from the agg node already, would BT be able to tap into that and finish it off to my property potentially cutting my install costs, or would it have to be a fresh build altogether?
Cheers for reading!
