Community Fibre Partnerships


[link to this post]
 
I want to get the cabinet upgraded. I have been quoted £4.7K to upgrade the cabinet via a community partnership.

The problem is how to raise funding, even £1000 and Iím thinking of covering the rest of the cost.

How many people will get improved service availability? Some will take the option, others may not, but by getting the message out there you may find others will to help fund.

If you get 20 interested that is just £235 each ... which is not an excessive amount.

Birmingham doesnít have the option of BDUK funding.
The cabinet will cover 346 homes. The area already has VM available and residents will be more incline to invest.

Raising funding is generally down to campaigning those that will benefit - unless you have an angel investor that would stump it up for no return. Do the 346 houses all have access to VM? If so then getting them to pay may be more difficult.

NB: You will also have to form a company / formal legal entity..
to sign the contract with BT Openreach... do not forget that bit.

You might also look to see how many rented properties there are in the catchment area (look for rented properties on Zoopla/RightMove) and/or talk to estate/ letting agents. Landlords may well want to increase the rental or at least ability to let, value of their property.

and ultimately, leaflet evey home - thats only 350 off leaflets through doors.. one weekend !
though I suggest taking out an email address specifically for this, and putting that on form (gmail has lots !)- to keep it separate from your personal stuff.

So lets say 200 want it - 25 pounds each
100 want it - 50 pounds that's only £5/mnth for the 1st year... extra
is it likely to get 30% take up , look for those Sky Dishes - they are pushing Sky-Q, and the delivery of catchup over internet... so good targets for wanting faster speeds.

Just warn them 9-12 months for the rollout..
(yep, been talking to open reach also)

I have now signed the contract. I will leaflet the area later on this week. Hopefully any one that contributes will be appreciated. Otherwise, I will have to pay up.

The cabinet that to be installed is to have capacity to support 288 end users.

> 288 users...
interesting, as the project I am involved with is for 287 properties
and I know at least 2 people who have 2 lines now and we were expecting to add another for 'site' monitoring purposes..
If they choose the same size... oops !
(esp as anyone wanting internet will take FTTC connections, given the choice is 2-4 Mb/s at best for most of the site, and not that stable)

I believe the Huawei 288 cabinet can support 64 port line cards. So that can provide max capacity of 384 end users.
