Make no odds here, we still don't have Out of Reach FTTP network and I have no idea when it will come, saying that not really sure if I would want it, even if the installation would be easier than Zzoomm, still not sure about Zzoomm either.

I have seen some OR vans around over the last few weeks, more than normal, but I don't think it has anything to do with FTTP as I am pretty sure it is not Open reach that does the work anyway, but contractors.

We will see what happens next year, I am in no rush, I still have until January to go on my contract and to be honest the speed of my broadband is fine, if Plusnet offers me the same price next year then I may take it

Well, I got email from openreach about rolling out FTTP in Telford as they replied below:

Presently at this current time, having checked with our senior project manager and the planning information, I am sorry to confirm that your immediate area is not currently included in any plan for an upgrade to FTTP via either BDUK Government Funded or our Commercial Openreach work.

Oh well, don't think FTTP won't be in Telford for a very long time sadly. frown

Have they worked out how to IPv6 yet?

I don't know when OR is going to roll it out here, they say in the next 3 years, Zzoomm is already rolling it out, but the whole city won't be covered until the end of 2023 looking at their map and the problem is they are only covering the city, I know a few people in the sticks that would love better broadband. Maybe OR will see sense and get to them first, but I doubt it, they will stamp on Zzoomms turf instead.

I still in the mind set that FTTP really don't offer me any more than what I am getting now apart from extra speed, which is not going to make much difference to me.

Lots of providers don't use IPv6, I am pretty sure that Zzoomm don't use it, but I will have to check that out.

Who do you suggest should pay for OR seeing sense? Would it be shareholders, existing users or Government (i.e. us, the taxpayers)? OR are a business not a charity and the economics of business mean that they will try and boost their revenues at minimum expense rather than spending lots of money to service comparatively small numbers of users. If you don't like the way FTTP roll-out is going complain to the people setting the parameters for funding (i.e. the Government) rather than companies trying to do their best to stay in business.

What is needed, before the brave new world of no more analogue phone circuits kicks in, is the ability to port away your landline number to a VoIP supplier, without it killing your broadband account (regardless whether it's ADSL, VDSL, or FTTP)

Applies to all ISPs I think (except for A&A ?)

There's a limit to how much FTTP any provider can do in a given period so they all have to pick their battles.

FTTP is coming to Telford, but not to your specific location
