Exmouth 1Gb Fibre Network


[link to this post]
 
Some more detail from Jurassic Fibre -

Our current plans are to start building the network in the forth quarter of 2019 targeting Exmouth and reaching it by year end. In terms of Exmouth itself, we currently expect to build at a rate of 1000-2000 premises a month with service being offered as soon as the network in a one area is tested. Overall it will take 12-18 months to complete.

In terms of when the network will reach you, that really depends on where you are located and on the initial assessment of interest across the area. So for example if we were approached by a number of residents of a specific area in all probability we would look to prioritise building the network in that part of town at an earlier part of the cycle.


There will be more detail from Jurassic on the Exmouth build in a couple of months. smile

Probably didn't read that they used a chain trencher and just looked at the picture saw the small amount of spoil and assumed the trench was relatively shallow. In reality was probably in the region of ~50cm deep and 5cm wide. So you could easily put some 40mm ducting at the bottom of that which could easily take some duct grade fibre. I was looking at some this morning left behind by contractors in one of the data centres at work (they are all lazy like that end up with 20m of cable/fibre on the end of a drum and they just dump it all in patch rooms and data centres). Anyway about the diameter of your pinky for 24 single mode cores according to the writing on the side. That is a lot and I mean a lot of bandwidth.

Video of "moleplough" cable laying -

We are using a 'Moleplough' dig method as part of our network build, which offers minimal disruption and disturbance to the land and the ground conditions. This method is also preferred by many landowners as it minimises risks and up to 1km can be done a day!

That moleplough looks great, but why only 1km a day - at that speed it looks as it could cover more than that (ground conditions allowing).

WELL I HOPE YOU ARE INCLUDED , We live in brixington area southwest of dinan way and after expressing an interest have been told we are not going to be included in the coverage area at all??? it looked like the phase 1 map coverage was along dinan way and towards the town but not so...maybe jurassic isnt going to be a universal network maybe they will just be choosing selected profitable areas inside their maps,??we will have to wait for openreach i guess.

I emailed but didn't hear back, so I sent a Facebook message to their team.
They came back with:

"Hi, thank you for your message.
At the moment your address is within our second phase build which will commence September 2020.
Have you registered interest on our website so we can keep you informed of our progress?"

No concrete dates, just a start date for Exmouth in general I take it.
At a guess I would say it's going to be mid-late 2021 by the time they get to us, fingers crossed for earlier though.

That is odd, I also assumed they were covering all of Exmouth, especially Dinan.
It's got to be more cost effective to lay fibre around there than other parts of Exmoth.

I have been given new information - that Phase 1 will cover only Bapton Lane & Close in Exmouth, and I have also been provided with a price list. Their full build plans run over six years.

Re: Exmouth 1Gb Fibre Network(inc price list)


[re: Spud2003] [link to this post]
 
There seems to be some confusion over pricing. The PDF flyer I received gave the following products and prices -

SmartHome50 - £35/month + installation, for a 50/10 service
SmartHome150 - £50/month + installation, for a 150/30 service
SmartHome500 - £70/month + installation, for a 500/100 service
SmartHome1000 - £100/month + installation, for a 1000/200 service

Price list

All prices inc VAT

However someone who visited one of their events stated these figures were mentioned -

30 down 10 up = £35
100 down 20 up = £50
300 down 50 up = £70
1000 down 200 up = £100

Obviously these are slower speeds at higher prices in most cases, 30/10 for £35 looks particularly uncompetitive - much slower and more expensive than a typical 80/20 FTTC connection.

Can anyone from Jurassic clarify their product line-up and pricing?

I've started to see a number of Jurassic Fibre vans driving around Exmouth recently.
Some of those have been near the phone exchange in town, so they've almost certainly started adding their own kit to the exchange.
The rollout can't be too far away now.

Interesting, or maybe not as I've been told my address is Phase 2 or 3.frown Knowing my luck I won't get coverage under Jurassic and of course Openreach aren't going to waste money on a duplicate fibre network for Exmouth. I'm on Pound Lane which is in the centre of Exmouth, if there are question marks over Pound Lane what else might not get covered?

I guess they're still trying to sort out their exact roll out, but I think we'll start to see some more comms from them soon. Hopefully where they're planning on rolling out and when.
I've had a look on roadworks.org for any updates and have found two for JF:

https://i.imgur.com/FyYQtfs.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/3iUSzla.jpg

Work has started near Withycombe Rugby Club and the other near Kings garden centre.I would hazard a guess, that this is the prep work to bring the main fibre backbone into the town. I think I remember them saying they were coming down the A376 with it.

With the other providers, Virgin are likely a no go and BT seem to only be going with G.fast here.
So lets hope for a near 100% roll out from JF.
I'm starting to look forward to having FTTP finally.

So after an e-mail exchange with Jurassic it seems I'm in the Phase 2 build. Jurassic will be back in Exmouth Q3(June-August) with a possible connection towards the end of the year.

That sounds pretty promising.
I'm still thinking early next year to be connected up, though.

Their new site is a big improvement, the Bristol design team did a good job of it.
I've noticed they mention an availability checker on their site to be launched soon:
https://jurassic-fibre.com/can-i-get-jurassic-fibre

What’s more: for those of you who would like a better idea of when we’ll be near you, check back on this page soon to use our availability checker, which will tell you with more certainty how soon we’ll be joining you.


It might be a good way to see their actual roll out plans in the near future.

I was really surprised when I found its available where I am. It's not been publicised on any of their rollout plans as far as I can see.

Jurassic fibre costs look expensive. How do they compare with other ISPs other than BT?

Layout of the Openreach looks more like a Community Fibre project intervention. No way of knowing if it is, but is on our checker now and maps by end of weekend.

Once someone sees availability can they prod me, and will see if can get the footprint figured out.
