Pipe - what do you mean? New ducting? Or referring to copper wire?
Guide to cost of FTTC is around £30,000 to £40,000 per cabinet. Remember BT Wholesale don't put the cabinets, they are just another customer of Open reach who do the actual work and service provision in the local loop.
Hi Mr Saffron
I would think that the engineer was meaning a block of new cable wires but as i have said above the noise coming from the estate is to high and he felt that new wires would not be the answer and it would be better to go door to door to track down on where this noise was coming from
He did say that he may not be given the go a head to do this as that procedure is in uncharted territory and a householder can refuse permission to cooperate
I myself have been able to access many of the houses over the years just by being a friendly neighbour that and being helpful with computers has normally proven sufficient in getting a foot over the door and helping someone from a unnecessary expense and trip to PC world
The standard of what i have found at the computer level in the majority of the houses that i have been in is not what i would have expected from an estate of this type of customer but each to his own
Some have the router round the back of the TV with all of the wires mangled together in a spaghetti fashion along with sky boxes etc down to keyboards littered with crisps etc
Their computer environment is all a mish mash which is odd as the rest of the house is very clean and not much to find fault their
The outside also being top notch and welcoming just a pity about the inside computer environment
I myself wasn't even aware that noise could leak out from someone's else and destroy most of the estate so i have learned something
I have another BT engineer coming over to the estate tomorrow and will report back with his findings
