I notice in the news today: http://m.bbc.co.uk/news/business-31451174, Virgin are looking to expand their existing network in areas they are already in, so perhaps there is some hope for Rotherhithe here. Interest can be registered here: http://www.virginmedia.com/cablemystreet

If you are in apartments then less so, the problems of dealing with wayleaves and landlords still apply. The financials make it clear they are chasing the ROI closely. So yes residential streets but probably not the current wave of apartments across London unless the landlord is fully onboard.

There are navvies using drain rods to lay rope into BT conduits down Needleman Street (SE16) on behalf of BT.
They say that its in preparation for pulling fibre.

Anyone know about this program of works ?

Can't comment on Needleman street, but there was a newsletter coming out of SE16.com saying the following

BT’s Openreach division, is conducting a trial of new Fibre-to-the-Remote-Node (FTTrN) broadband technology in Rotherhithe – bringing download speeds of up to 80Mbps to an area that was previously unreachable with standard superfast broadband connections.

16 premises in Gwent Court on Rotherhithe Street now have the opportunity to choose from a range of broadband service providers taking part in the trial, and will see their download speeds increase to close to 80Mbps – around 20 times faster than existing services in the area.

Rotherhithe has proved a challenging location for private companies to upgrade with fibre broadband because of its industrial history, large docks and the prevalence of long ‘exchange-only lines’ – where broadband connections run the full distance from a local telephone exchange to a home – rather than via roadside cabinets.

Traditionally, Openreach has needed to install a new cabinet to bring fibre broadband technology to streets across the UK, but FTTrN works by taking fibre optic cable much closer to residential properties, using a small box called a ‘Remote Node’ that effectively acts like a miniature cabinet.

The remote node can be positioned on telegraph poles, inside manholes or in a variety of other locations, meaning it can potentially be deployed where space is at a premium like parts of central London – or where the traditional approach is too complex or expensive to achieve, like Rotherhithe and Bermondsey.

“This trial demonstrates our commitment to keep pushing the boundaries and investing in our open network,” said Bill Murphy, managing director of next generation access at BT Group.

“Areas like Rotherhithe present us with a unique technological and physical challenge, but this trial is a precursor to further announcements we’ll be making in the coming months as we seek to meet that challenge.

“We’re pleased to be working closely with Southwark Council on this project and we look forward to seeing how the trial progresses.”

Cllr Peter John, leader of Southwark Council, said: “Slow broadband speeds are a frustrating issue facing residents in Rotherhithe. The council has been working closely with BT to find ways to bring superfast broadband to Rotherhithe and it is welcome news that BT is trialling new technologies which might deliver superfast broadband to places that are harder to serve.”

Val Shawcross, London Assembly member for Lambeth and Southwark, added: “We’ve been working closely with BT over several months to discuss these trials, and this is a positive step in enabling Rotherhithe residents to get access to superfast broadband.

“Openreach brings the advantage of choice and competition amongst a wide range of Internet Service Providers, and we are encouraging local people to formally express an interest in getting superfast broadband via the Openreach website.

“We know there is huge interest in speeding up Rotherhithe’s broadband, but it’s important that we demonstrate that if we want to encourage more trials and infrastructure investment in future.”


I came here for some info on this FTTrN stuff but could not find anything so i'm going to post later to see if anyone knows anything about it

Looks like the node is live for properties in SE16 5SW
Adding to our checkers now, so will be added to the figures in the next few days.

Only live for premises in the postcode, indicated its just a node, and beyond the ones seen in North Yorkshire, suspect that there are a good few more in Northern Ireland serving very small rural clusters and similar in Cornwall.

In terms of technology its either a small cabinet or a rugged box that can be placed in a basement room or a pavement chamber outside. Limiting factor is usually power or if located in the building wayleave issues.

For the end user the process for ordering is identical to the use fibre products

https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html what does this say for you flat number and postcode.

e.g.
Address FLAT 24, GWENT COURT, ROTHERHITHE STREET, ROTHERHITHE, LONDON, SE16 5SW on Exchange BERMONDSEY is served by Cabinet 60
FTTC Range A (Clean) 80 80 20 20 -- Available
FTTC Range B (Impacted) 80 57.8 20 5 -- Available


Flats in SE16 5SW are no longer on EO lines, they have a cabinet number 60 which is the FTTrN box
