FTTPoD


[link to this post]
 
A friend is on one of the newly listed FTTPoD exchanges and would love to get an improvement on the current sub-1Mb ADSL service. Various calls to BT have proved fruitless. Does anyone know of a contact there who can arrange for pricing?

As I said in the news item, it will take a while for providers to get their heads around this one.

Thus it may be a while before the call centre staff have even been briefed at all, thus if talking of BT Retail don't rush, and they may only offer on business terms.

He does not mind - either a Residential or Business install will do! Provided it does not come in at £10k !

I thought FTTPoD was only available through a cabinet. If your friend can't get FTTC they can't get FTTPoD either.

Their cabinet is enabled - just they are too far.

Given that the installation price band is based on the radial distance from the aggregation point, how far are they from the cab?

Radially from the nearest aggregation point - about 500m, from their actual cabinet 1200m.

So that line length will be a true test of the BT installation prices!

How much!

It will be an interesting one:

Nearest node (actually at the exchange) 500m (a little over)
Cabinet 1200 - 1400m
Line length to cabinet ~3200m
Line length to Exchange ~9000m

The document quotes radial distances.

Anyway, it does not answer the original question. He needs a number to call.
