The Developers have nothing to do with it as they just put the copper wire down and thats it.
They were never going to invest more as there was never fibre in the area and for them to cough up more money we were on a high road to nowhere.
I have checked the letter and its definitely FTTP as the letter states:
Thank you for asking Openreach to provide a quote to bring fibre broadband to premises in the Chesterfield Close area.
I am pleased to confirm that Openreach is in a position to carry out the provision of FTTP
infrastructure to the premises in Chesterfield Close outlined in the Table 1 annexed. This
means that we will install the FTTP infrastructure to a common point, which will allow the
premises outlined to order an FTTP service from an Internet Service Provider (ISP) if they choose to do so.
The cost of the provision of infrastructure to serve the premises listed is shown below:
This quote is subject to fibre capacity at the exchange and assumes the premises are a
suitable distance from the distribution point. This will be confirmed at formal survey, which will be undertaken prior to any formal contractual agreement with Openreach.
We will need a Legal Entity (e.g. Residents Group or Managing Agent/Developer) to
contract with Openreach. We will require 50% of funding to be provided on contract
signature; the remaining 50% is paid on completion of works and triggers the cabinet being available for Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to offer service.
• Any infrastructure provided as part of the Project will remain the property of BT and
will form part of the BT estate
• Openreach will take responsibility for all future management and network upgrades
once the infrastructure is installed
• A fibre broadband service will need to be purchased by individuals from an ISP. It is
the responsibility of the community to check that their existing ISP offers fibre
broadband. Current providers offering the service are regularly updated at the
following website: http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/for-business/bu...
• All premises in Table 1 will be able to purchase an FTTP service from ISPs offering
Fibre to the Premises. The speed will be dependent on the ISP and the product
• This quote is based on private funding only (i.e. excluding any local authority funds
which would require formal procurement and State Aid approval)
• While we are unable to take into account external factors (such as Local Authority
Traffic Approvals) the typical timeline for such deployments is approximately 12
With the comment about Fixed Fibre Wireless is the technology from 6G Interent the same as Metronet now M24Seven? The reason i ask is our work uses a similar technology i think and seems fairly reliable in our city offices.
