Re: Openreach Trialling PCP-Only FTTC Install

on openreach side it will change a lot.

I am registered on a site with openreach engineers and they are saying job time will fall from 1-2 hours to 10 minutes.

BT Infinity 2 Since Dec 2012 - Estimate 65.9/20 - Attainable peak 110/36 - Current Sync 71/20

I did that last week, I couldnt find a single vdsl modem sold in the uk apart from openreach ones on ebay or the friztbox.
Should've gone to SpecSavers tongue:

Billion BiPAC 8200M

ZyXEL P-871M

edit to add:

And if you don't mind it not being in a pretty box:

NETGEAR VDSL/ADSL2+ Module (Annex A)

Couldn't quickly find any halfway detailed description/spec so it may not be particularly useful.

That seems extremely unlikely.

Re-jumpering at the PCP and testing will take most of that. Then there is the travel time to the PCP, shared between the number of connections being made on the same visit, plus someone presumably has to alter the jumpering at the exchange as the copper will be unnecessarily connected to a DSLAM, (bearing in mind the fibre is often to a different exchange), and certainly if it is a move from LLU to BTW-based, and so on and so on ....

Anyway, nearly all the installs I've heard about, including my own, seemed to take around 30 minutes at the premises.

Not sure what the charge out costs is but it has to be in the region of £50 an hour. THe biiger benefit though is the actual time saving as BT seem to have a big resourse problem. It will mean the Engineers will be able to do a lot more installs and possibl som of the cost saving may be passed on

they said the rejumpering is a 10 minute job, the bulk of the time on current installs is at end user premises. My guy was here at least an hour.

yep, this will go a long way to tackling the current installs situation.

The devices Openreach hand out are VDSL routers, just like those, but in modem mode.

But only two ethernet ports and no wireless. As used by BatBoy, and I think a couple have copied his setup.
