So I finally had my survey this morning - my AG node is about 800m away (outside Osprey Court on the Finchley Road NW3) and my original desktop quote was £7,100+vat. There is ducting under the pavements all the way to right outside my house so I'm not sure whether my quote will change much. I discussed with the surveyor where I wanted the fibre cable to go (back of the house along the exterior wall) and he said fine and would draw it up for the contractors. Due to restrictions in how much the optical cable can bend it can't follow tight corners so it requires quite a bit of planning to get the best line for the installation.
One interesting piece of information was the surveyor told me he has been asked by OR to also survey 95 nearby houses for a future FTTP rollout - so it looks like my FFTPoD order has triggered a wider survey. I'm not expecting any actual FTTP rollout to happen locally in less than a couple of years so it won't affect my FFTPoD order.
My original quote was for Band B which is 200m-400m but my AG node is much further away so a little confused about this. I was told there is a splitter node about 300m from me so is it possible that they would only need to run a fibre cable from the splitter node?
