FTTP Timescales


[link to this post]
 
I live in one of the areas mentioned here https://www.ispreview.co.uk/index.php/2020/07/ofcom-... due to get FTTP over the next 3 years (Article is dated July 2020 so should now be within 2.5 years). Is there any way to check the likely timescale for my area?

Also is there a way to find out how the current telephone line comes into the house? I believe it is underground but don't see any evidence of BT manholes or ducts around my property. I am just trying to workout what may be required when FTTP becomes available.

Thanks,
Paul

Think this is the latest update from Openreach, look from page 9 onward for your location

An interesting update list.

The exchange/village that I am connected to is Hawarden WNHAW not listed, but totally surrounded by areas supplied by exchanges that are. Connah's Quay, Buckley, Chester South. Plus also the next layer out, Hope, Mold, Flint etc.

Is there any hope (not a pun) for Hawarden?

Cheers!

Thanks for getting back to me. Looking at the table (my exchange is Fauldhouse) it show a Yes for "Exchanges Currently Building In". What does that actually mean for likely timescales for premises being able to order FTTP?

Thanks,

The fact that they have started the FTTP build in your location/exchange area is extremely positive, there are lots of exchanges/locations on that same list that haven't started or will not start for at least 3 months. For timescales on when you will be able to order, no one is going to make you any promises on that as every build is different.

Build can be anything up to a year. Depends on the location.


The fact your exchange is in build is very encouraging.

Can't help on timescales but you can track rollout at https://labs.thinkbroadband.com/local/index.php?tab=...

You are likely to notice when rollout starts in your area as there will be lots of work down manholes or up poles.

You asked how your service is delivered, you would know if it was overhead as you would have a cable from a pole. If no Poles it is underground and you may be able to find where the cable exits the duct and comes up the wall before entering the house. (or even inside the house).

Also: if there is no duct, and the cable is buried Direct-In-Ground, then they may decide to deliver FTTP from a pole.
