I have been looking into FTTPoD. I originally ordered a desktop survey from Cerberus on the 10th February 2021 and got a price back on 22nd February 2021.
Estimated Build Cost: £8,700.00 ex VAT
Number of premises passed for FTTP: 19
I'm not sure why I was surprised by the cost being so high, given all the other high quotes! There is a new property development up the main road from me that has had FTTP installed - so there is fibre in the area. I live in a suburban type area and my current copper line is via overhead cable drop from pole (with Distribution Point on it) with ducts back to the cabinet/exchange.
It probably makes no difference to my own order but to the east of me, Uxbridge (Hillingdon) is going to be a Fibre-First Borough. And Uxbridge even on the list of the first 100 phone exchanges to be closed.
And to the west of me, Gerrards Cross is supposed to be getting both OpenReach FTTP and Swish Fibre.
I decided to go-ahead and get a Field Survey done, which I ordered on the 22nd February. It is probably pretty optimistic to think that the price may come down. I liked that Cerberus had clear and very transparent pricing. But the web-based ordering process was a little bit broken. Some CSS broken on the form and had to restart the ordering process after it got stuck - I fed this back to them but haven't heard anything back. Maybe because I wasn't using Chrome. On the 22nd February they taken payment from me (for the survey) and have now completed a credit check.
Reporting here as it might be useful to have another data point on the FTTPoD Desktop Quotes and Final Prices spreadsheet.
