Unfortunately (at this location) WBC FTTP is not available until R&R has been attempted, so I guess I'll have to be patient

Really ?

Openreach will only let you order AFTER they have attempted a rod and rope ??

Openreach provision is driven by CP’s placing orders .... if they cannot order from Openreach, Openreach reach won’t attempt anything ???
I don't by the theory that a R & R needs to be attempted as I've seen properties go live with comments like "possible wayleave issue" and all sorts of other issues so a simple R & R attempt isn't going to stop a property go live.

Edit: For clarity when I say 'live' I mean available to order FTTP

That's correct. My neighbour has:

Our records show the following FTTP network service information for these premises:-Single Dwelling Unit Residential UG Feed Not Evaluated.

FTTP is available and a new ONT may be ordered.


and FTTP Install Process says "KCI2 Assure".

Their duct is not roped, but they are served by the same underground chamber as me. What it's saying is there is a duct, but it hasn't been checked so there's a potential issue if it's blocked or otherwise unusable.

" connecting to computers with multiple 4K monitors."

A monitor is usually small in size compared to a TV and there is no need to have 4K displayed on it, Full HD is more than adequate.

Believe me i know but i was connecting to macs at the time and I'm not sure if you have experienced apple's scaling approach of changing resolutions but teamviewer gives me options to override the default options however it makes the experience awful.
I was connecting to video editing macs that's why it was 4K at the time.

If it makes things better I have two 27" 1080P 144HZ AOC gaming monitors because i could not justify the cost of 4K (to be clear i got these at over 50% off) These monitors

The only reason some of my devices have 4K is because they are laptops.
But i know where your coming from. It's really stupid really having to receive 2 4K "streams" when essentially i can only view it in 1080P the same applies on the laptops when i need to access them offsite with my 10Mbps upload that struggles.

Off topic, but I disagree. High DPI screens are great on Mac or Windows computers.

It was about how the bandwidth requirements of upload speeds and how FTTP would make a massive difference to those working from home.

But i guess its not fully related to ducts and rod and rope.

I know one thing St Neots FTTP roll out has caused all the major roads around the exchange to be closed as the ducts access is in the middle of the roads for some reason and they seem to be trying to rod but have decided to dig due to the nature of blockages.

I've just seen them mention about Fiber cabinets on the above link.

I didn't think FTTP needed cabs? Any idea what they mean?
