Re: FTTPod install time?

However if they pulled and spliced a traditional cable, then there are probably spare strands in it that they can splice onto.


Correct, those of us with spliced fibre have 4 fibre strands blown to the external CSP with 3 kept as spares. These are the guts of the CSP on my wall:

Next problem is to find out how to get Openreach to update their database so the house next door can order FTTP. Their phone line is connected to a DP on the side of our building and the FTTP connectorised block is next the DP, so really no reason why they should not be able to order it. However both www.dslchecker.bt.com and https://www.homeandbusiness.openreach.co.uk/fibre-br... say they can only get FTTC. The bungalow that is also connects to the DP on our building does show up as able to get FTTP.


What you describe is as expected.
Usually they only enable properties for WBC FTTP if they are on the same copper DP as you.

How many "properties passed" did they quote you and how many properties are on the same DP as you?

Properties connected to the same DP should benefit from native FTTP however AFAIK Openreach don't give out guarantees as to which additional properties will also benefit from FTTP on the back of the FTTPoD build.

If your neighbour is deadly serious about getting FTTP, probably worth getting a free desktop FTTPoD quote, any database anomalies will most likely be corrected by Openreach at that stage. Worst case scenario, if they really can't get native FTTP then FTTPoD will probably work out quite cheap (relatively).

In reply to a post by MarkLeman:
"FTTP on demand 1000/220 available"! I have only ever seen 330/30 for FTTPod.

Irrespective of what speed is shown for FTTPoD on the DSL checker, BT Wholesale don't sell anything above 330/30 on FTTPoD at present so i wouldn't read too much into higher speeds - that is unless you live in one of the few exchange areas in the E Midlands or S Wales where CPs such as Spectrum Internet or Syscomm can supply your neighbour with 1 Gig FoD using their own LLU backhaul.
