FTTP New House


[link to this post]
 
Hi Guys, I am soon moving into a new build, around 2 years old that only has FTTP available, no copper services. There is an ONT present in the property but I was not able to see the lights on it. I am looking into who to go to for broadband services and so far BT seem to be the cheapest. I am going to be living on my own with a laptop, iPhone and smart TV so 40/10 should be plenty. Anyone know of any other companies offering similar pricing? Sky would've been nice to incorporate TV into the same bill but I am aware that they do not currently offer FTTP.

I have the same set-up. Openreach provides a complete list of who sells Internet access using Openreach FTTP, not a long list:

https://www.openreach.com/fibre-broadband/fttp-provi...

I believe only BT offers a phone service using the phone port on the ONT, but plenty of choice for VoIP or mobile providers independently of FTTP service.

Sky is allowing FTTP households to register their interest for their imminent ultrafast service, but I donít know when it will go live.

FTTP 40/10 on BT Retail is £29.99 /m on a 24 month min term with a £60 pre-paid Mastercard thrown in from BT. You can also get £95 cashback if going via Quidco and with both of these discounts this brings down the price to £23.50/m over 24 months. TBH you're not going to find any better deals than that currently...

Kinda going off topic here but when can we expect the Openreach wholesale price decrease to effect the current prices.

I don't know if it's worth going for the 150/30 for £39.99 a month with bt (with £110 MasterCard) or wait upto a max of 2 weeks to see if the prices go down since my current FTTC contract ends early October.

There's no decrease in the wholesale price of 150/30: see the table at https://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/8477-openreach-p...

The price of 330/50 is being reduced to a level where it's only £3+VAT more than 150/30 at wholesale. But actually, for two years there has been a wholesale "special offer" at almost the same price (£25.39+VAT per month), so this change just cements that discount.

So I'd say: if 150/30 is what you want, and you have a good deal, then take it. Maybe the premium you'd have to pay for 330/50 could drop very slightly, but that's all.

Sorry I know this doesn't answer your question but I am interested in why some people refer to a 2 year old property as a new build, surely a new build is newly built not 2 years old. The fact that this 2 year old property has FTTP is brilliant news.

I refer to my 7 year old house as a "new build".

In a country with properties that are hundreds of years old I'm very surprised someone doesn't think a 2 year old property is "new".

Good for you!

Sadly in a throw away world everyone likes to think they have something new.

Hi

We lived in a house for 25+ years that was new built, even after all that time us, neighbours, and family would always refer to the house/estate as a new build estate.

The term "New build" is starting to become a way to describe a style of building new estates that most people recognise as being profit optimised and built by the same few developers using a handful of house styles to modern building standards, and very newly built 'new builds' are coming with FTTP smile
