Re: FTTP Timescales


[re: Grimers] [link to this post]
 
The Openreach vans were back at the end of the street on Monday and have been at other locations around the village the last few weeks. I have tried looking at https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL/... for a few addresses round the village and all show that FTTP is NOT currently available. Is that normal? Are there any better sources of data to see how the rollout is going? https://labs.thinkbroadband.com/local/index.php?tab=... doesn't have anything for Fauldhouse. Does that show where FTTP is available to order, or where FTTP has been installed?

Thanks,
Paul

Yes that's normal: it's ready when it's ready. There's auditing to be done, and there's additional work at the exchange, which can take weeks or months. There may be problems with the upstream fibre path that may take time to resolve. Sometimes, fibre rollouts are abandoned without going live at all, due to unforeseen problems.

Thanks for the information. I realise that there is no exact timescales on this, but was just wondering if there was a general rule on it. I had a a look at http://streetworks.org.uk/live-traffic-works-map/ and there are further works shown there in the next month (using the 3 months view it show works on or about the 19th May). There is nothing further out than that. I wasn't sure if that meant that they hadn't worked out all work required or if they only have to give a certain amount of notice that they intend to carry out work.

Cheers,
Paul
