FTTP 'coming' so won't progress FTTPoD order


[link to this post]
 
New post rather than muddy the FTTPoD thread:

Had a desktop survey a couple of months ago for £18K, decided to progress to a full survey (with the hope it'll drop 50%) 6 weeks ago and Cerberus have just come back with a note from Openreach:

"Openreach have advised that the planned FTTP install is for March 2019, so they won’t progress FTTP on Demand order."

That is good I guess? Is there any way of validating this?

Thanks,

Steve

The usual advice - until its live in your property then things might change but the pace of native FTTP roll-out is increasing

might tell you on the OpenReach checker.

Do you know if you are in a Fibre First area or is it would likely be a BDUK job?

I only moved in a month ago, and have FTTC at 21mb (after scrubbing the internal crazed soldered wiring from the previous owner that caused the checkers to think I would get 10mb). I have a 1.5km line length. I am surprised that FTTP is 'coming' purely because I thought that they were concentrating on completely non-fibre areas. I am on Cabinet 2 in Halland.

The OpenReach checker does now say (as opposed to a month ago) that "Engineering works" are going-on on my cabinet.

I'd say that's totally awesome news. If you placed an FTTPoD order today you'd be unlikely to get it before March anyway, and now you're getting it for free as well.

Openreach are also bringing native FTTP to slow FTTC areas, ie those getting < 25 Mbps on FTTC such as your property. So yeah you have every reason to believe Openreach when they say they have fttp planned for your address. But just be aware, that fttp rollout timescales can & do change.

Mostly the "clear ducting" is the major issue.

We are seeing a lot more FTTP infill in slow VDSL2 areas in the 6 to 8 weeks

Getting something for free you were going to pay $18k for? Yeah, I'd file that under "good".
