My update this week:

The underground and jointing estimates have now been raised, we are just waiting on the start dates, we will let you know as soon as we have them.

In reply to a post by Spinstorm:
So I got this today from Cerebus

“Estimated Build Cost: £9,300.00 ex VAT

The build charge includes the estimate for the work and materials required to deliver the service. It also includes the connection charge.

Number of premises passed for FTTP: 6”

I am going to go ahead and make the order so I can get the survey done. I won’t be paying that estimate above there but if its less than 5k I just might.

I was told at least 2 months for the survey as there is stop on new orders that is removed on 1st Dec and they are full up with Dec orders - so sometime January for survey.


Hi when did you submit your order for your survey? i presume mine will be done in the new year too. Desktop quote was £8900+VAT hoping it will be under 5k...

I quite like reading updates from other people so ithought i'd share mine.

I've just had a look at planned road/street works in my area and spotted some BT work on the green cabinets that i assume is related to my fibre install. There are 2, i assume for the original green cab and the FTTC green cab.

1: STREET CABINET and POWER INSTALLATION. Excavate to lay approx 22m BT ducts, Lay concrete plinth, Stand cab. Excavate to expose low voltage cable for Power Connection and lay approx m duct. POWER engineer to carry out inspection prior to jointing. POWER jointing team to insert cable and execute jointing works. Reinstate, Check and clear site.

2. STREET CABINET and POWER INSTALLATION. Excavate to lay approx 16m BT ducts, Lay concrete plinth, Stand cab. Excavate to expose low voltage cable for Power Connection and lay approx 36m duct. POWER engineer to carry out inspection prior to jointing. POWER jointing team to insert cable and execute jointing works. Reinstate, Check and clear site.

Both have the date 7 Dec - 14 Dec.

As I understand, FTTP doesn't use the cabinets at all, so it's probably just coincidence.

I actually had the same. My FTTC cabinet has reached capacity: the availability checker shows "waiting list" when I search by address (but not by phone number, where it just shows "available").

So they had to reshell the PCP to increase the tie-pair capacity. That involved some pavement digging too. But AFAIK it's nothing to do with the ongoing FTTPoD install.

I don't know the correct terms but my surveyor said that there was some new fibre equipment needed near the AN, I assume some sort of connector/splitter. In my case it was going down a manhole around 5M away from the AN (which is also down a manhole)

Yes it's all underground: this video outlines it. You get a brief view of an aggregation node (at 3:07) and splitter node (at 3:24).

My guess is that you are quite close to the aggregation node, so they put a splitter next to it to serve you (and in future, anyone else nearby)

Today OpenReach have started running the fibre cable through the ducting from the AG node for my FTTPoD order so hopefully not too long now before installation is complete.

Those roadworks are definitely unrelated to your FTTPoD install.
I've never seen any FTTP equipment in any cabinet. It's in underground chambers or pole mounted.

There's no reason for them to touch the PCP cabinet or the FTTC cabinet.

In some cases the Aggregation Node could be in a chamber right next to a PCP. Even then nothing goes through the PCP from the Agg Node.
