I have a few general questions that I am hoping someone may be able to answer and re-assure me on!
We are moving into a new build property this week (Friday) and as the title states, the house will be connected via FTTP.
I have been told that the house is connected fine, Openreach came out and did their bit to make sure the house was up and running last Tuesday, I only have the developers word for this... so I have to hope that is true.
The concerns I have are:
1 - Today I have just got an email from Royal Mail saying my address is now on the PAF and should be 'searchable' within 2 days. So im hoping that will sync up with BT so I can place an order once live? Or is there an additional delay for BT to recognise that address as well?
2 - We were on the site on Saturday ( i should have gone in the house but didnt) as we were there to pay off a balance for floor installation. At that time, I saw that the white cable that I believe is the fibre line is still tied up outside the house... shouldnt that have been put into the house to confirm its connected? Or is that something an engineer deals with once we place an order?
3 - Once everything is live and I am in a position to order via BT, how long until FTTP becomes active? Is it a quick service, do I need a BT router etc still, or is the point in the wall my router?
I think thats all I need to know, would love to hear of other experiences positive (to get me through my night shift) negative.. im assuming there are plenty.
Final note from me, 60 quid for 300mb! Its hearbreaking going from a house that has Virginmedia with a full TV package and 250mb cable for 68 quid a month, to a house that will cost me 60 quid just for Fibre!
All help appreciated.
