TalkTalk Fibre Optic!!


[link to this post]
 
Had a email from TalkTalk:
From May, we’re rolling out our Fibre Optic Boost across our network, which will provide you with high performance broadband and an even more reliable connection.

And as you’d expect from TalkTalk, it’s great value. Our Fibre Optic Broadband is just a £10 a month Boost with our Essentials or Plus packages. Also, as part of the £25 activation fee, we’ll send an engineer to get everything set up and make sure you’re connected

I wonder what their policy on P2P will be? No change I expect.

Well as someone who doesn't spank P2P, i'll be off like a shot should they ever introduce unshaped P2P traffic smile

Also does anyone if the TalkTalk fibre service will use TalkTalk's own equipment at the exchange? Kind of like 'Fibre LLU'?

It's after midday, so it doesn't count I'm afraid.

Nice try

They will be taking the uncontended feed from openreach and then backhauling on their own network, thus avoiding the WBC network which is what I presume you wanted to know

Whether it will be VULA or GEA at the exchange is more of a pricing issue, but in both cases would be Opal backhaul network.

Wouldn't it be nice if they could simply get above 1.1mb download here in Herne Bay?

Or am I asking too much?

That adds to my confusion about VULA.

I thought VULA would use the BTW MSAN, whereas GEA is straight from Openreach into the TT MSAN? If so, then I expected GEA to go back through Opal backhaul, but VULA through BTW backhaul but not the WBC system?

Or does VULA mean the BTW MSAN feeding the Opal backhaul somehow?

Thanks for the explanation Mr Saffron, now just got to wait until the year 2366 when my exchange in Scottish Highlands is FTTC'd frown

Where in Highlands? I've got work colleagues in Forres area, and a customer on the Findhorn exchange. Neither have LLU. (Although I note Forres itself now has TalkTalk, shame they're not in town).

No LLU there, so I can appreciate what overcongested BT 20CN services are like.

What about FUP or any limit?

Westhill, small village on the outskirts of Inverness. The local exchange (NSICL) only serves 5k or so residential users so it was surprising to see a TalkTalk LLU presence last August; now C&W LLU have also joined joined them....thats not a surprise really, as Inverness is known as Tesco town (already 3 there, with a 4th being built LOL) and Tesco broadband runs on C&W LLU.

They probably found a cheaper way to get the backhaul back to inverness then.

Most likely the same as the package you are already on with TalkTalk since it is just a £10 speed boost

If the 1.1Mbps is because of phone line length, then only once FTTC rolls out will things improve
