You can get a 1Gig circuit with free install for around £700 a month now on a 3 year


Really? Linebroker is giving me the cheapest price for a 1gig up & down leased line from BTw as £1326 per month on a 3 year contract. Would love to know who's offering it for £700 per month

This is true, but I am expecting in the next few years to see FoD at a far lower cost than it is presently.

BT has the ambition for 12 million people to receive speeds over 100Mbps by 2020. It has made the commitment to pass 10 million homes with G.fast by 2020 and has the ambition for 1 million homes passed with FTTP (new builds/rural area/apartment blocks).

The other ambition is to reach 1 million businesses passed with FTTP by 2020, and they seem to be on the right track with this area with the business park expansion.

Even with these ultra fast plans, you're still leaving a gap of some 17 million premises. This is where I think we will see a more competitively priced FoD in the right areas.

You need to speak to Barry as I'm not sure his site has the latest offers yet.

It does also depend on your location and the nearest PoP.

As he said on the ISPr site, 'Virgin are fighting back with attractive pricing on their Internet leased lines. We had a couple of quotes generated on our portal today for Gig/Gig in both London & Manchester @ £608 p.m. with free install'.

Well if its the same as FTTP, its not a guarantee of a minimum of 70Mbps, but 40Mbps.

According to the WBC FTTP Product descriptions for 330Mbit/s FTTP there are two levels of "Service Variant", Standard has a "Minimum 'Best Efforts' Planned Downstream Throughput (Mbits/s)" of 40. Elevated has a "Minimum 'Best Efforts' Planned Downstream Throughput (Mbits/s)" of 70.

I think so too. As more fibre gets rolled out, there's more nodes available.

FoD2 with connectorisation should reduce some of the time spent for the construction and it'll mostly just be duct work.

Again as fibre heads deeper, more of the dirty ducting would have already been "recently" cleared.

I'd pay a couple of grand for FTTP no problem.

They certainly seem to have improved the processes for building and installing FTTP. However, it's still labour intensive and costly.

An idea I was thinking about was a concept similar to FTTC waiters. So BT offer FoD at a lower cost with normal GEA-FTTP line rental rates, if a certain number of orders are placed by those connected to an individual cabinet. Say £500 per person for installation (no idea if this is realistic) and when they hit a certain number of orders for people on a specific cabinet, BT proceeds with the build (subject to the usual surveys etc).

Leased lines are not that much now.

£700 x 36 monthly charge total £25,200.

No thanks too expensive!

Yes that's true but my small business can have it if the directors want it. Where I work is a fibre cabinet just five steps walk from it. My company can easily get FTTC 80/20 full speed no problem at the business park. .
