When is Taunton getting FTTP?


[link to this post]
 
Half the town is now lucky enough to have FTTC while the other half waits for FTTP, trouble is we have no idea if or when it's actually coming, the checker is useless and i've not seen or heard anything to suggest they're actually working on this yet, i would at least like to know if it's coming this year or not?

Are their still Openreach engineers working in the town, as they would be best to ask to give a rough date, FTTP has been very slow in deployment with hardly any news.

Where their is a split between FTTC and FTTP, the FTTC is enabled while those residents who are ment to get FTTP are still waiting, one would wonder why not just enable for FTTC and then let FTTP on deand for those that want it.

Because it's a totally different delivery system into the premises. It may be possible next year, at high cost to the customer, as opposed to normal cost for scheduled FTTP areas.

I have seen the article, the point i was trying to make was that the delays in FTTP deployment why not change it for FTTC instead alot less manpower and cost, residents get a faster service sooner rather then later.

Until we see the FTTP on demand pricing and the cost to OR for each house to enable for FTTP is pretty hard to compare.

Openreach reckon a typical FTTP install takes about 7 hours so assuming they charge their usual rates you are looking at around £1000. In areas where the phone services are carried via poles it takes considerably less time especially if the lines are strung from pole to pole rather than through ducts to each pole.

A lot depend on how much of the cost is passed onto the customer.

I wish I knew. It would be nice if the checker gave even a vague idea. Instead, nothing. The only information I have is from the December spreadsheet that says FTTP to my postcode.

I live in Taunton. A FTTC cabinet has been installed within sight of my front door, but it doesn't serve my house. Instead the homes just behind me. Rubbish.

Yeah they really should have changed their rollout plans for mixed fibre towns once they came up with fttp on demand, i think most would prefer to have fttc if it means they can have it a lot sooner, so far it looks like fttp is actually a bad sign if you want faster broadband any time soon.

How are things going in other mixed fibre towns, have many got fttp yet?

Yeah, I live in Taunton too, I used to live over in Staplegrove, and since moved to Priorswood, surprise surprise, my old house is now 63MB fibre enabled, my new house still runs at 6MB.

FTTP according to the checker spreadsheet is in phase 6b which says completed and 100% rollout.

I can get slightly faster broadband here than I could at my old house, so I thought fibre would have been delivered here first! Should have said "could" get slightly faster broadband.

I am with Sky broadband currently as I have had better experience with them than BT in the past, but would consider switching back for those speeds!

If the spreadsheet says that 100% of the postcode area is being upgraded and it says it has been done, does this mean that I am not going to receive it? Then 100% is not correct, or does it mean that there has been a delay on phase 6b being rolled out? Or another mysterious BT issue that no one ever knows about?

You forget that FTTP areas will get it at the standard installation cost for their ISP, which IIRC is £25 for Infinity 40GB and free for Unlimited.

FTTP on demand in FTTC areas is expected to be a few hundred pounds installation instead, because it requires the fibre running there when there is probably perfectly OK copper with FTTC on it already.

Most FTTP in the spreadsheets I hav seen refer to Tranches, not Phases. The only FTTP with phases I have seen has been one exchange where there is a lot of FTTC in phase 6b.

I think it is an error in the spreadsheet data for that exchange.
If the spreadsheet says that 100% of the postcode area is being upgraded and it says it has been done, does this mean that I am not going to receive it? Then 100% is not correct, or does it mean that there has been a delay on phase 6b being rolled out? Or another mysterious BT issue that no one ever knows about?
The "YES" under "Deployed" doesn't mean it is completed. It just means it is in the schedule. So at some point in time it will be completed - probably - as at 15 December 2011 planning. You need to follow up any planned roadworks and such close to your cabinet, with your local council planning department.

Phase 6b in each area could be different by months.

I live on the edge of Taunton/Trull just past queens college. Both street cabinets near my house (on the same stretch of Trull/Honiton Road from Queens College to Trull Green have been upgraded, but I still can't get fttc or fttp.

It's annoying if half the town have it, as we are (without being snobbish) the more affluent area/village and are behind the rest of Taunton.

Spoke to some Openreach engineers who were laying fibre today at the top of East Reach in the centre of town. They said FTTC would be available to anyone whose CAB was enabled and line didn't use overhead cabling, the latter would get FTTP.

Taking that with a healthy pinch of salt I think....

Did they say anything else about FTTP?

We know FTTC is available now to almost half the town and there's still some work left to be done on it but what i think everyone else is waiting to know is when exactly FTTP will start to appear, so far it's all C and no P, they really should have been working on both at the same time to be fair.

Not necessarily.

Having over head lines makes no difference whatsoever to the difficulty of implementing FTTC and can actually make it easier to implement FTTP smile

Its down to Sky to enable their kit for fibre.

Down here in Taunton/Bridgwater I believe because BT took until around 2009 to upgrade the town exchanges to 21CN, the LLU providers such as Sky have a very large user base and will probably take longer to get their kit ready for it (Most of the people I know in Bridgwater and Taunton are either on Sky or TalkTalk).
The hard bit is done (FTTC), so waiting for Sky is the easy bit as you can already get FTTC from other providers smile.

Same in my area... we were told half was getting fttc and the other half getting fttp. the area with fttc is live and the area meant to be getting fttp has been canceled.

i have just started a community campaign but BT have said we need a 60% committed uptake of services before they will conduct a survey and see if its viable to roll it out.

I know I shouldn't moan, 4Mbps is fine most of the time and I have friends living in villages not far away that can only just get ADSL at all. However, I don't see how OR can claim they are "Accepting Orders" for Taunton exchange when the availability must be an incredibly low percentage. We would be far better of living in a town with just FTTC. At least we would be offered something, with the option to pay more for FTTP on demand.

I'm in one of the parts of the town that has not yet been upgraded and I got my hopes up yesterday when I had an email:

Dear Adrian,
Thanks for telling us that you're interested in superfast fibre broadband.
We're really pleased to let you know that your local exchange, TAUNTON, has been added to our rollout plans.
You can get more details about the current status of the TAUNTON exchange, and find out when superfast fibre broadband will be available, using our new interactive map at www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when
Because there are instances where we can't upgrade every single street cabinet, we'd advise you to contact your preferred Communications Provider and use their line checker to find out whether or not your property will be able to get superfast fibre broadband.
Satisfy your need for speed, with downloads of up to 100Mbit/s and join our superfast fibre revolution.
Regards
Openreach Marketing


I checked with my isp (AAISP) but they said i'm NOT yet ready for the upgrade

Is any progress being made at all or is that it then, no fibre for the rest?

Someone must know, either we'll have fibre by this time next year or not, they should have just changed the rollout to standard fttc for everyone when they knew they couldn't deliver, probably don't care about ideas like fairness and finishing a job you start, what a joke!

Thanks for the update, i thought FTTP didn't need cabinets or are we all getting FTTC now instead?

What id like to know is what they're doing while we wait, once the FTTC half was finished you'd think they would get straight to work on FTTP but i've not noticed any work being done around town since earlier this year, im sure if they had switched to FTTC this wouldn't be an issue for most of now, instead we have to wait for almost a year and who knows if they will deliver, it could be 2014 before we see anything.

The UK is somewhat larger than just Taunton and the FTTC teams will have moved on to other areas that are scheduled to get FTTC but where work has not yet started.

As has been said in a number of posts FTTP installation will for the most part not start until the national FTTC roll-out has been broadly completed. Remember installing FTTP is far more labour intensive than installing FTTC however the benefits of having FTTP should be well worth the wait.

I wish Openreach would do that to me...

I'm on the Exeter exchange which was enabled as part of phase 5a.

At my last address I had FTTC over a year ago.

Where I am now, a "scheduled" FTTP area of the same exchange, nada. Just long line slow and unstable ADSL.

What do Openreach say? They've deferred plans until next spring at the earliest when they may resume work.

Haha, Exeter's no better!

The quayside is all but submerged, and my route to work has been converted into a damn for the last few weeks...

A plastic dam has been placed across the railway line at Exeter to minimise flood damage. Steve Hawkins, from Network Rail, explained: "The last time it flooded we lost the railway for two or three days but we lost the signalling equipment, so we had restricted working, for two or three weeks.

Lols, it's fine, the other route to work is a more fun drive anyway.

It really has changed in recent years, it's a stark difference to how it was in the 90's. So many new estates, and the city centre bears no resemblance to what it was before.

I just hope they continue with building the science park as planned before the economic meltdown smile

Just noticed that a "new" taller & thinner cabinet has just been installed nearby next to the existing BT cabinet so I'm hoping this could be a good sign.

FTTC Check http://fttc-check.alc.im/ says it's FTTP (Fiber to the Premises), but I'm not too sure if blocks of flats are included in the plans for FTTP as I have read it's for houses only not flats.

I guess there is also a time lag between the cabinet being installed and the new faster service actually going live.

Is the cabinet installed next to the existing BT cabinet one of the Huawei or Eci cabinets?

http://www.robertos.me.uk/html/street_cabinets_etc.html

What does the BT wholesale checker say for your number if its BT, if non BT then use the address checker but not the postcode checker as it should say if FTTC is planned for your number/address.

https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html

With FTTC and FTTP both services have to be ordered once they are live, their is not automatic upgrade to the new service.
