Re: FTTP available soon - stage 1 question


[re: Michael_Chare] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by Michael_Chare:
Why do you say that? FTTP should be able to go along way.


It's nothing to do with the technology of CBT FTTP, more to do with the supplier cable lengths available that Openreach have.
I believe when it comes to CBT, the maximum supplied CBT drop cable is at a length of 160 meters.

That's not the best news! So there's no way round it? 150m is never going to reach the house from the CBT.

Of course thereís a way round it smile

At survey stage itíll get picked up, so they may put and additional CBT further down the lane.

There is a cost limit to what will be done to get the final drop to a property, so at survey time they may come back and say excess construction charges apply

That sounds a bit more promising. It's approx 260m from the pole to the front of the house along the lane. There is a small one of these about a 1/3 of the way down the lane outside the 1st property on the lane (there are 2 houses and 2 further undeveloped sites) and the current phone line is in a plastic pipe running the whole way to property boundary. That might help I suppose. Don't mind contributing if need be but not one of thoese crazy FTTPoD costs!

Yep, thatíd do it. wink

I do think the likely solution would be an additional CBT fitted further down the lane, seen this done before.

Limitation of the cables supplied, houses wonít show availability if at the survey stage of the build it is identified that they are more than 150m from the CBT they wonít be included and capacity wonít be created for those houses. There is a new length of cable coming out but this is only for limited uses and has to be installed at the build stage.
