ISDN30 Fibre - internet possibilities?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,
The Hitchin exhange has been FTTC enabled woohoo ...not
The cabinets in the industrial area have been omitted.
Utterly beyond my ability to comprehend this country's ability to shoot itself in both feet at the same time.

We are looking at new premises and I see a couple of fibres in the building, which I take to be ISDN30 fibre.

Just wonderingd how we can make use of these as PSTN adsl is hopeless at c3Mbps.

Hi. Thanks for the reply.

£650 pm for 2M-10M burstable - ouch.

Am also looking at EFM but just seems mad to look at EFM over Cu or fibre when a perfectly usable p2p fibre is already there.

Can anyone confirm if old ISDN30 fibres can be reused with any of the current services please?

It probably can technically be re-purposed, but unlikely to happen as it does not exist as far as I am aware on the Openreach price lists.

In short would be a custom job, something Openreach are not good at.

Presence of it might mean Ethernet is cheaper to install, remember also that with Ethernet usage is a lot less of an issue. Potentially if others are looking for connectivity on the estate you could partner up to get a big connection and share it out yourselves.

Alternatively if other cabinets in area have FTTC and not yours find 50+ people with a firm commitment to buy service and you might convince Openreach to enable it.

The fibre can be used to provide a multitude of different services, looks like you have had a quote for an EAD (Ethernet Access Direct) delivered service - which is probably your best bet.

Any EFM provided service is likely to be not dissimilar in cost.

You can't, obviously, get ADSL over fibre as it's a technology designed for copper.

It's a chain reaction.
