FTTPoD quotes, prices and general chat thread Part 7


[link to this post]
 
Starting a Part 7

Got back my Cerberus FTTPoD quote. Sadly, much higher than my budged allows. The location is a terraced house in North London, about 600-800m of walking distance from the cabinet.

Initial estimate was Unknown Subject To Survey.

The confirmed build charge is £11,742.00 + VAT.

Labour £6,002.00
Contract Labour £0.00
Civils £2,949.00
Stores £3,361.00
BT Connection Charge £495.00
Deduction £-815.00
Field Survey charge paid £-250.00

Total £11,742.00 + VAT

Had it been around 8-9k, I might have gone for it. But 12k is a bit too high. Never say never, though, I could always win the lottery smile

.......... it is distance from the aggregation node that matters, not the cabinet.

But that’s all by the by now .... unless your numbers come up. 🤞

My cabinet is almost 4Km away.

My Agg Node is less than 2Km away.

Either way building a full fibre network to the premises is a very expensive complex business as I have learned over the last 4 years.

Pleased to say that after initially raising an order with Amvia back in August 2019, our property went live with FTTP on the 27th of October 2020.

Timescale from order being first raised to quote being accepted by carrier was around 11 months (August 2019 to start of July 2020).
Approximate build time was 4 months from quote being paid by us to connection going live (July 2020 - 27th of October 2020).

Total build costs (ex VAT): £10,629.94.
Minus two rural gigabit vouchers: £10,629.94 - £7,000 = £3,629.94(ex VAT).

Download speeds originally 4-5mb/s are now constant at >300mb/s.

A long winded (at some points frustrating) journey, more than happy that it's finally now in place.
