After a long wait, FTTP is now finally available to order at my address. I thought I'd get my order in as soon as possible, as I heard that there was an extremely long wait for any Openreach work that needed the engineer to come into your home. I was fully expecting to have to wait until June or July to have it installed.
To my surprise, when I went through the order process online with BT, they offered me an install slot on the 23rd of this month!
Does the wait time vary depending on your location? I saw an article back in January that said the wait was already into April, so feared it would be months before I could get it installed. Makes me a bit dubious of the install slot, to be honest. I'm half expecting them to turn up and say they didn't realise they had to come into my house to install (which they will have to, its an overhead line and we currently have FTTC).
The BT Wholesale checker shows a 1 stage install: "Single Dwelling Unit Residential OH Feed with no anticipated issues".
I'm suspicious of the 23rd install date, anyone else think it's a bit fishy? I'm happy for my suspicions to be wrong and they turn up with no issues, but it does seem a bit too good to be true...
