Re: How do you get any information out of Openreach ?

In reply to a post by baby_frogmella:
I wonder if that is down to the OP's location being in a town/city centre? AFAIK BDUK funds cannot be used in such areas, which is why there are still many areas (eg in Central London or Leeds Centre) without FTTC/P, though 'Fibre First' has begun addressing this. I guess this is down to a higher % of commercial premises located in town/city centres whereas BDUK is really intended to benefit residential customers en-masse.
I know of Farnborough but that's as far as it goes for me. CodeLook says Hampshire Superfast have funded around 18 cabinets to get FTTC so not sure if these are in the middle of down or not.

Nothing stopping city centre areas, hence why a number of cabinets in Farnborough have been done in the phase two roll-out

London was excluded as was already above BDUK target.

A problem that repeats across city centres though is Exchange Only lines, i.e. more costly to give VDSL2 and with value for money as a big Gov driver then are at the end of the list often. Also cabinet density is higher, so compared to the suburban areas you often have lots of smaller footprint cabinets in terms of area and number of premises covered, thus may have broken the £1,700 per premises intervention rule

Could you please briefly explain this intervention rule.

As part of the value for money and rules around the BDUK projects the phase one contracts invariably had a public spending cap of £1,700 per premise

In some phase two contracts this has changed.

So what would happen is planning would take place with cost estimates and those deemed too expensive would be put aside and other cheaper places found.

Logic being better to deliver superfast to 1,000 premises than deliver it to 588 more expensive premises.

Of course knowing this does nothing to help the poster...where it seems FTTP was planned and then dropped for reasons unknown. Usual reasons for this are cost or difficult to obtain wayleave.
