No chance of FTTdp?


[link to this post]
 
I'm in an urban area but my specific road only receives ~15mbps on VDSL2. OR engineers I've spoken to have blamed long aluminium cable runs for this.

Whilst I realise it could be much worse, I had consoled myself in the knowledge that the G.Fast rollout would fix this in a few years time.

But from reading into the details, it now seems like the plan is to deploy G.Fast at the cabinet level rather than from distribution points. I understand this would suffer from the same cable quality problems I experience at present and potentially not work at all.

Is there any reason to believe BT would look to "fill in" areas like mine with an FTTdp solution, or should I give up hope?

The answer to this, like almost every other question about the roll out, is know one knows.

Everything might change depending on what Ofcom does, but under what is known currently, G.fast nodes closer to homes but not at cabinets or DP may become a feature post 2020, i.e. once the densely packed cabinets that form the 10 million premises are live

would that be an FTTP or FTTdp installation?

I think Fastman2 was referring to an infill FTTC cabinet.

The community partnerships have done both FTTC cabs and FTTP.

I doubt they've done FTTdp, in the sense that it really means G.Fast, but they might have done FTTRN in the sense of a mini VDSL2 DSLAM.
