150 would on be charges just before openreach was going to enable the area and as soon as the user took an fttc service the money would be returned
this is how it would work
open Reach decided exchange need 10k lines to make it worthwhile
target for that exchange is 11k,
people who want FTTC sign up free of charge, once 11k people have sthey want it an email/text is sent asking them to pay the 150£ deposit. Once 10k people pay the deposit the exchange is enabled quickly and people have a chance to sign up to FTTC Once they take out an FTTC service the 150£ is refunded after 45days.
This would only be for area which are not getting FTTC and Open reach think that there might not be enough interest.
The fee is high to stop time waster
