What are BT doing? Help understanding roadworks


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

From roadworks:

formation for Operational Teams

Highway Authority:
East Sussex County Council
Location:
OS 35c on CRANBORNE AVENUE
Description:
EASTBOURNE NEVILLE RS V5356 - PON 801290 - To build 11 new joint boxes and lay approx 186m of Duct 54/56 in FW/CW/VERGE
Permit status:
Granted
Works ref:
BC111WBLVMJ7K002
Current status:
Work in progress
Work info last updated:
15/10/2020 13:53
Last updated on one.network:
16/11/2020 19:10

They are doing this in 3 locations within about 50m of my home.

What does this description mean?

Did someone pay for FTTPoD or something else?

11 new joint boxes?

I don’t know what this means however I would assume one house for FTTPoD wouldn’t require 11 of them? Right?

I doubt it's FTTPoD if the survey has come back with 11 new joint boxes. The PON in the job code would suggest it's a fibre build. Looking on the Thinkbroadband maps for your location the build is happening where the FTTC is currently sub-24Mbps. Also checking a postcode on eSussex puts the addresses in "final few", so maybe it's a state aid build.

So you think this is a new green cabinet or the infrastructure for FTTP?

The speeds are super slow up here...

FTTP is much more likely than FTTC these days

Plus if it was just a cabinet, then would not build a PON.

may be may be not - might be some premises only depending on what programme is funding what the build is - best to check your address with Openreach website whcih can be found here - this should tell you if there is a local build whether you are part of it or not https://www.openreach.com/fibre-broadband

witchunt has access to very detailed rollout plans, much more than any public facing online checker can give.

If he says it's the whole area then it's the whole area.

Is there a time frame on when this will be available?

I've been hoping for years that this would happen.

Last summer I enquired with Cerebus about FTTPoD and was told Openreach were building it out in my area so I couldn't place an order but nothing ever happened. The eSussex broadband site briefly back then said FTTP was coming to the area but just as quickly that vanished.

There is no evidence on any site that this work is even happening.

I understand that you have access so know all - would love some idea of a time frame maybe to actually get it.

Thanks!

And also thank you to everyone else who replied to my question.
