Re: Openreach Trialling PCP-Only FTTC Install

In reply to a post by RobertoS:
But only two ethernet ports and no wireless. As used by BatBoy, and I think a couple have copied his setup.


Wasn't advocating them for any purpose nor discussing their capabilities, Bob, beyond merely pointing out that the pieces of kit Openreach provide are routers.

Yes, I know smile. I'm not trying to shoot you down, but I thought it worthwhile to point out the deficiencies in case anyone thought of trying it.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet Extra Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.0/14.9Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

they routers not standalone modems

The Billion BiPAC 8200M is a modem, the VDSL2 router is the BiPAC 8200N.

BT Openreach send an engineer out to fit this VDSL face plate for Fibre Broadband, well no wonder Fibre Broadband connection charges are so high £50 a time. The sooner they send it in the post with the Fibre Broadband Modem the better, I say! wink

Rumour has it that exchange jumpering staff will be going to the cabs to do the FTTC jumpering. (That'll be a shock for many of them !)
plus someone presumably has to alter the jumpering at the exchange as the copper will be unnecessarily connected to a DSLAM,

Nah. Stay's until required for someone else, ie new donor for a lift and shift. My old 8128 sync was still present on my line nearly two years later when my FTTC service was ceased and returned to PSTN.
Anyway, nearly all the installs I've heard about, including my own, seemed to take around 30 minutes at the premises

Sadly often not true either Bob.

A modem on the 'new' D side of PCP once jumpered would confirm everything is as it should be at the PCP.

The FTTC sync comes 'out' on the E-side pair, if you want to be pedantic. grin

Good to know, thanks smile

EDIT: That said doesn't the cross connect between E and D-side take its toll on sync a bit? Any particular reason why sticking it inline between E and D couldn't be done? Presume so but not familiar enough with the minutae of the Openreach network.

Fat chance.

They'll just leave it up to the CP to send the end user microfilters tongue
