Rod and rope process


[link to this post]
 
Is the "Rod and rope process" to a property detailed at
https://www.openreach.com/help-and-support/questions...
performed as a part of FTTP rollout, or on an individual property after ordering FTTP as part of the installation process?

I would have thought it was the latter, but the OR site suggests that this may be performed before an order is placed.

Usually the latter, after ordering.

In some areas they do do this during the rollout process, so the OR site is accurate in saying this "may" be performed before placing an order.

depends on how the build is funded could affect whether the outcome of the rode and rope has a charge or not --

Thanks to all for the info

I asked, as the rest of the village with OH feeds are now FTTP available. Our road with UG feeds via ducting is still unavailable and so wondered if they needed to have rod & rope before becoming available.

The duct to the property is also internal (which I understand is atypical) and so OR would require access if R&R was needed, which could be problematic with current restrictions.

My exchange area (Peartree) is currently being fibred as part of the Openreach rollout and they sent a letter telling everyone on the estate this. It was many weeks later when they started the process and now all homes have a bit of blue rope sticking out of ducts!

Will see how good it was at the end of April (2021) when my FTTP install gets done.

Blue rope appeared from our duct at some point last year (25 year old house with u/g works) but we were never contacted.

Same around here, we are in the midst of a rollout and blue ropes have started to appear through the ends of the ducts on the houses.

CBT's were installed nearly 3 months back so it seems something is holding us up at the moment.
