Re: FTTPoD quotes, prices and general chat thread Part 5

I get 30Mb/5Mb on FTTC with about 680m to the cabinet (7) on Somersham exchange.


Mine was similar: 30-35M down, 4-5M up (varied throughout the year). ~400m line-of-sight to cabinet, more like 800m via the actual route, something like 1-1.5km to aggregation node. Existing ducts along the whole route, although the survey identified an additional 34m that needed to be dug.

I was one of the first to put my request in under the new pricing (Feb 2018). My quote was £6,600, and I got the £3K business voucher, but it took just under 18 months for the whole FTTPoD process from start to end.

It probably cost OR a lot more: due to capacity problems, they had to dig an additional 164m of trunk duct. It's possible such experiences will have made them increase their quotes.

It's not exactly a "rural" location, but at the edge of a town just as it turns into countryside. I was (and still am) pretty sure that UK fibre coverage will be no more than 50% by 2025, and that my property will be in the other 50%. Hence I was more than happy to take the hit.

There is a spreadsheet here of final prices which forum users have reported - although there have been very few recent additions. For those who got "unable the quote" at desktop stage, the lowest confirmed price was £8,015 and the highest £21,540 (+VAT)

After a bit of complaining I finally had my distribution point installed today. What is the bigger black box for towards the bottom? Is that where the two ends of fibre are connected together?

Yep. Looks like you're ready to rock and roll!

You probably now need to wait for an audit to take place, mine took several weeks. You can check the progress of this by looking at dslchecker.co.uk, once the checker says "WBC FTTP" as opposed to FTTP on Demand you know the audit has completed. Any properties passed can then order FTTP at that point. You then need to wait for an appointment for installation from the DP to your property, it took 5 weeks from the point the audit was completed for me to get this appointment.

Hopefully it will all be much quicker for you, but I wouldn't be surprised if in a couple of months you are still waiting. I think my DP was installed and connected up by July 2019, I went live at the end of December.

Do you mean from the pole with the CBT on it to his property?

They are the same thing no?
A CBT is just a fibre DP.

I know this as been asked and answered in one of the FTTPoD threads before, but I'm not sure how I can narrow down the search, so;

How long is it before I can ask for another FTTPoD quote? Is it 12 months since the last one?

Sorry, I can honestly say I've never heard a CBT being referred too as a Fibre DP so I've learnt something new today.
