Talktalk FTTH or FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Hi Guys,

was just looking at BT advert link which shows FTTH

http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProduc...

will talktalk be the same, or will they only offer FTTC?

just found out, from bt rep.

bt infinity upto 76mb is FTTC

and

Bt Infinity 100mb is FTTH

so guess talktalk will def be FTTC only sigh

thanks

When you check your line what service does it say is available via BT? As the 100 Meg service is still pretty rare.

TalkTalk is FTTC only at present, we expect a launch of the 100 Meg version probably after July

it said upto 76mb bt infinity,

id imagine once fttc is in place bt would just create a standard install charge to get FTTP, for most ISP who want to do it, and pass on cost to the end user anyway.

just found an article

February 3, 2012

BT to offer “Ultra-Fast” full fibre connections as “on-demand” service

BT are to offer full fibre as an “on-demand” service and bring “ultra-fast” fibre broadband to anywhere that BT has a fibre footprint in the UK from Spring 2013.

BT have been trialing an “on demand” full FTTP (Fibre To The Premises) service in Cornwall. The successful trial in St Agnes, Cornwall, has seen additional fibre being run from a FTTC (Fibre To The Cabinet) enabled area to the premises of customers meaning that they then receive full FTTP and the availability of up to 300Mb broadband speeds (BT are due to increase their headline 110Mb fibre broadband package to 300Mb speeds).

BT are investing £2.5bn in rolling out it’s fibre network across the UK and hope to have coverage of 66% by the end of 2014, the majority of these connections will be via a FTTC and not the full FTTP. FTTC currently offers customers broadband speeds of up to 40Mb, although this is to be doubled to up to 80Mb this spring.

The new “on-demand FTTP” service is likely to be made available for customers either personal or business who require full fibre by Spring 2013 yet are in an area where BT have only installed their FTTC fibre service yet want the extra speeds available that a full fibre connection would offer.

Currently around 7 million premises in the UK are able to access fibre broadband over BT’s fibre network, with this figure likely to be 10 million by the end of 2012 and then two thirds of the country by the end of 2014.

Olivia Garfield, the Openreach Chief Executive, said:

“FTTP on demand is a significant development for Broadband Britain. Essentially, it could make our fastest speeds available wherever we deploy fibre. This will be welcome news for small businesses who may wish to benefit from the competitive advantage that such speeds provide.

We are also doubling the speed of our standard fibre broadband this Spring giving ISPs the chance to offer speeds of up to 80Mbps. This will ensure that residential customers have world class speeds for all their family’s needs.”

There are currently no indications as to the price it would be for BT to upgrade a premises to full fibre but we would envisage it wouldn’t be a cheap enough option at present to turn many residential customers to decide they need the extra speeds.

I'm just curious is there a kit I can buy, or ask BT engineer if he could install?
