TalkTalk/Openreach FTTP


[link to this post]
 
Couple of questions.
Why do 'we' think TT needs to trial OR FTTP in five Cities?
If TT have FTTC on an exchange do they need to install extra equipment for FTTP?

Staff training for one. Real world usage. fttp issues are different to fttc etc. Theres quite a few reason why a trial would be a good idea.

You sure this is not confusing their Fibre Nation roll-out? e.g. Harrogate and Knaresborough

Where have Talktalk said anything about trialling OpenReach FTTP in 5 cities?
That doesn't make any sense.

A small trial makes sense to help develop ordering systems and train staff but this isn't usually targeted to specific areas like you suggest.
It's often trialled on staff members with access to OpenReach FTTP or to a *small subset of customers.

Yes, a handful of small customers is all there is, given the obesity epidemic wink LOL.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.

Oops, haven't they made a press release, never mind you can rely on me to blab out news that I shouldn't. wink

p.s. I've only been told which cities, it may well be employees, but I got the impression it was a few select customers.

They wouldn't issue a press release announcing a limited trial.
They've already confirmed they plan to sell the product.

I'd be very surprised if this was being trialled in specific "Cities" like you say.
Much more likely specific exchanges. Doesn't mean every exchange in a particular city could take part.

Unless you signed some kind of nda I see no reason for creating the thread but not naming the "Cities" involved.
