WOOP WOOP!

Just had a call from an Openreach Engineer to let me know he'll be doing the FoD survey tomorrow....he's coming all the way from Orkney to Inverness LOL He said the "job packs are ready/complete now" (whatever that means). Inside my house he will need to know where the ONT unit needs to be installed and then he will trace the u/g phone line duct to the nearest fibre aggregation node. He said providing there's no issues in his report, an engineer will be booked to install/blow the fibre in 1-2 weeks after the survey. Fingers crossed smile

wow!

My cab has just started showing as live for FTTPoD and also looking into pricing etc. (PONTYBODKIN is served by Cabinet 7)

I cant see there being an issue with install as there is a BT man hole cover right outside my house! Buut the cable does come in underground and not via a pole...

Hope it all goes well!

when it comes to fftp them prices are just a pure joke compared to eu prices, virgin provide 300/20 for £60 a month (if your area is good), i know its not fttp but still.

So what does one get for your £60 a month then .......... ?

http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/virgin_cable/t/4527...

You pay peanuts ......


I guess it depends. I note a 300Mb FTTP user on here whose performance drops like a brick during peak periods, and 2 300Mb cable users near me that are very happy with their cable services.

FoD is a rip off whichever way you look at it. The previous solution where there was a hefty install fee then the same monthly charges as normal GEA-FTTP was far better.

Openreach contractor yesterday began feeding fibre into the tel line duct which enters our home, this is being done only a week or so after the survey so quite impressed with Openreach's efficiency...amazing how quick they can be when someone else is paying for the work.

Luckily I won't be hit with Excess Construction Charges (ECC) despite the Openreach Surveyor telling me my property is 870m away from the nearest fibre aggregation node - radial distance I think. My quotation was based on being 600-800m away from AN (band D) so perhaps I should have been charged Band E prices. Not that I'm complaining smile

Fluidone have given me a go live date of 16th May but they said it may be slightly sooner. The main thing is that Openreach have started laying the fibre.
