Re: DSL Checker - G.Fast


[re: lee111s] [link to this post]
 
There are no guarantee's but there are things that can be done to improve your chances. Apparently once the new cab goes live then all new orders will be provisioned on that. But if I used my existing line, cancelled FTTC and then re-ordered on my existing line, there's a very good chance it would still be connected to the ECI cab. Ordering an ADSL service in the interim would solve this problem, or as I intend to do simply order a new line. There is one guy on Kitz who's line should be connected tomorrow, and we'll get to see if he's managed to get onto a Huawei cab.

There's quite a bit of info in this thread on Kitz

If the G.INP fix works, and and the new SNR margins work just as well on ECI then I may not change, I'll see how things go.

Won't matter as the FTTC is just providing power for the g.fast box and access to the fibre already within

I think you've rather exaggerated what he said, apparently there is 77,033 cabs live, so a third would be 25,677.

If I guessed at £5k each that would be £128,385,000, but I'm guessing it would cost more as you couldn't just replace a cab as that would cause loss of service for probably many days whilst things were changed over so they may have to install a new cab with all the addtional work as well.

Alas it's never going to happen, and if G.INP and the new SNR margins work then there's no more problem (hopefully) and hopefully we'll find out pretty soon.

I guess additional Huawei headends would be required as well

Nothing to do with it.

I'm not quite sure how a few hundred million pounds equals best part of a billion pounds.

The original BT contract with ECI back in 2010 was worth £528m. This number is likely to have increased with BDUK because the original contract would have been for BT's commercial deployment.

What you are forgetting about the cost of swapping all ECI kit with Huawei is that it's not just the hardware, there are many other costs as well, such as the capital labour element (engineers doing the cabinet/exchange swap work, the cost of TSO staff doing the reconfiguration). Then there is the matter of compensation for ISPs for the downtime (say a 256 cabinet is full and BT pay a month's line rental, that alone would cost them a few thousand).

I don't see why there is any talk of replacement of FTTC cabinets.

G.fast pods will be available for ECI cabinets.
