Re: A question about FTTP Deployment


[re: GMAN98] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by GMAN98:
I'm sure Fibering flats is totally do-able not sure about the cost though. There's no VM fibre coverage in flats AFAIK. Virgin's Fibre stops at the node (FTTN) its coax from there onwards.


I spoke to VM about it and they confirmed I can't get cable because the owners of the Leasehold (i.e. developers) recinded permission to put duct up the side of the flats for Cable installs.

They also neglected to run CoAx when the block was built.

If they had run CoAx to each flat ready for VM to terminate in the basement (or Telewest as it was then) when they were built five or so years ago I'd be able to get Cable.

Never mind.

Is there anything to stop you, as a set of flats, from organising your own installation of coax, or cat5e, to the basement?

Who manages the flats now? Can they be persuaded to do anything?

seems developers need to get in the real world, if they keep building with these types of policies they will eventually have people refusing to move in due to lack of telecom infastructure.

Too true.

When moving, it probably ranks as high as schools for me - and certainly a deal-breaker.

Imagine house prices depending on proximity to both good schools and a fibre cabinet wink

Interesting, I was unaware that Exeter was getting FTTP. Any links to a press release?

Not a press release, but you might want to check the list of post codes which was found in this thread.

WWEXTR is listed and with quite a few FTTP post codes.

Its amazing isn't it. Cat5'ing the whole block would cater for everything voice, video, phone etc etc

There hasn't been any press release but I can go out and take some pics of extra manholes being dug up Queen Street & Haldon Road to accomodate underground FTTP manifolds if you like? wink

In all seriousness there are people, like myself, who would appreciate sight of a set of photographs of such holes and their contents. smile
