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


[re: Retron] [link to this post]
 
Following the onsite survey, we have now received the confirmed FTTP on Demand Build Charge from Openreach.



The installation costs for this order are below and confirmed on the attached quote.

Openreach did not provide an estimate of the build charges.

The confirmed build charge is £13,829.00 + VAT

This includes the reduction for the survey and a deduction of £1,300.00 for premises passed. A breakdown of the charges is below:

Labour


£5,446.00

Contract Labour


£748.00

Civils


£3,890.00

Stores


£4,800.00

Civils Stores


£0.00

Tree cutting


£0.00


BT Connection Charge


£495.00


Deductions


-£250.00

Deductions


-£1,300.00


Total


£13,829.00


For < 800M. the estate opposite has FTTP (new-build development) so I expected it to be significantly less. Openreach engineer told me they may approach from the opposite side of the town (where the other aggr node is) and across the wasteland; putting up telegraph poles. this seems to be reflected in the addresses covered listed.

far too high when I can get 80mbit+ via the 4G mast opposite. im out.

Just to be clear: when you asked for a free desktop quote, did they say they were unable to provide one and you'd have to pay the survey fee to proceed?

Got my onsite survey quote back,

The desktop survey couldn't provide a price.

The confirmed build charge is £8,015.00 + VAT

This includes the reduction for the survey and a deduction of £1,300.00 for premises passed.

A breakdown of the charges is below:
Labour £4,735.00
Contract Labour £0.00
Civils £750.00
Stores £3,585.00
Civils Stores £0.00
Tree cutting £0.00

BT Connection Charge £495.00

Deductions -£250.00
Deductions -£1,300.00

Total £8,015.00

Not great, but not horrifying either. Regardless it is double what i could justify spending for the benefit id get from FTTP

12 properties passed but at least 4 are rentals and with everyone getting 70+ on FTTC i cant see much appetite for contributing £800 sadly.

At least it suggests it wont be prohibitively expensive for openreach to deploy FTTP when fiber first starts covering smaller towns.

Thanks for the info. It's nice to see someone in the "unable to quote" group getting a somewhat reasonable price.

Or you could just find one person who wants FTTP as much as you, and is happy to pay half.

I hope it gives a bit of optimism to anyone that's had "unable to quote"

There's one or two people that might be interested but they seem pretty satisfied now FTTC is available,

There was a group people that began to set up a community fibre group prior to the FTTC being installed but they are a couple of streets away, and there's no guarantee any FTTPoD installation to me will make it cheaper for them to install later (it should, but the whims of cable routing could scupper it)

It really isn't long now. You just need the appoint to install the ONT and you should be good to go.
