FTTP Possible new customer


[link to this post]
 
Posting here as cannot ask on Plus forum til a member.

Okay my EO line is finally showing as FTTP available(https://www.dropbox.com/s/ga7m7bis53yuogl/FTTP%20Now.jpg?dl=0)

I have been reading the Plusnet forums and in order to get FTTP I have to register for trial,should I register interest or place order for ADSL then request upgrade to FTTP as I have seen recommended.

Broadband currently with Sky Unlimited but phone with idNet,will I need MAC or to notify either supplier of change?

How soon after ADSL is live can I upgrade?

How much is the first months cost,do i pay for adsl or fttp?

Will I get the new customer pricing of £8.99 x first 6 months if I have to upgrade from ADSL?
Don't suppose the cashback offers via quidco/tcb are available?(No harm in trying)

Will it be engineer or self install ?

Currently have standard NTE5 faceplate,could I,should I change it or if engineer install will it be replaced?

Should I order new router at time of placing ADSL order or wait until I can place upgrade for fibre?

Sorry it's all questions but I want to make the right choice.

If its FTTP then it will be an engineer installed if its not preinstalled at the house.

The master socket will be used for the Voice so will remain as is unless it needs re locating, BT engineers will install all the necessary sockets and modem when they install the actual fibre link to your home if there isn't one that is no 30mins job either

I too will eventually get FTTP so am interested in this.

My question is if you sign up for ADSL with Plusnet which I think you have to in order to get on their FTTP trial are you 100% guaranteed to get on that trial or is there a risk you could be refused so you remain on an ADSL contract?

Perhaps someone has the answer to that because personally unless I was sure I would definitely get on the trial I would not risk going down that route.

From September 2001 on BTopenworld Home 500/Home 1000/Home 2000. Then ADSLMax on <n>ildram. Moved to ADSL2+ from ADSL24. I'm now with plusnet on FTTC since 28/05/2014 and loving it... I'm not saying who I work for. Any opinions expressed here are my own.

Hi there,

I deal with most of the FTTP at Plusnet so I'll try my best to answer:

I generally prefer migrating people over with ADSL first, as I find it easier to regrade to FTTP rather than a standalone provide. Feel free to sign up ADSL and then PM me on the forums (Matty Cassell) once you've signed up.

I'd aim to provision you once the ADSL order has completed.

Realistically, you'd be paying the standalone price for FTTC without any discounts (£19.99). I think you'd still qualify for any ADSL cashback offer though should you sign up correctly.

Engineer is likely to replace your NTE5 if needs be.

I'll dispatch your fibre router for free, so recommend paying the P+P for an ADSL one in the meantime. However, some people prefer to use their own.

Feel free to let me know if you sign up.

Hi Matty,

Another quick question for you, please. At the end of the year I'll be moving to a property with native FTTP. Is it possible to complete a 'normal' order for the Unlimited Fibre Extra without phone line in this case? Not intending to use my phone line ever, but not sure if I can straight away place an order without ever having had one...

Thanks!
