FTTP Pricing

I can't get FTTC as my cabinet wasn't upgraded, but according to Sam Knows I can get FTTP. Does anyone know what the cost of this would be? I'm guessing a small fortune? Tongue

Re: FTTP Pricing

Can you post what the BT checker shows http://www.dslchecker.bt.com ?

Re: FTTP Pricing

Good morning John.
Our order placement systems are entirely reliant on the dslchecker, and I find it slightly more reliable than SamKnows.
I've attached a screenshot of what proves to be available based on your location and it's unfortunately not good news.
If standalone FTTP was available, then the prices would have been similar - if not the same - as our FTTC pricing.

Re: FTTP Pricing

Sadly that costs a small fortune Sad

Re: FTTP Pricing

That was the full range of available products. However I do appreciate that I probably didn't crop the picture very well.
I find that as soon as the price gets quoted the end user suddenly loses interest! We've seen the average install fees around £1500 but one as high as £16k before.  Shocked

Re: FTTP Pricing

Hi Matty C - are FTTPoD available as I got email from Bill Murphy Managing Director NGA BT Group as he say on my email "we will not be overlaying fttp but fibre on demand could potentially come to your area as we roll out".

Re: FTTP Pricing

Nothing just yet I'm afraid.
To be honest I wouldn't get your hopes up too much for FTTPoD either.
As you have FTTC in your area, there is a 99.9% chance that you will never have FTTP. It is extremely rare that both are available.

Re: FTTP Pricing

It's ashame because FTTP is lot cheaper than expensive FTTPoD.

Re: FTTP Pricing

Or better, move country! I lived in Japan for 8 years, fibre direct to home no problem and always great speeds and reliable service.  Unfortunately not the same in "great" Britain. It's got to the point my wife and I laugh every time our internet goes down (which is at least 2 or 3 times a month)

They're currently making a big deal about this in Australia at the moment. They initially planned to have FTTP rolled out to 93% of homes by 2021. But then the government changed and it all got a bit political.

Shame UK will never get 100% FTTP by 2021.

Re: FTTP Pricing

it would be impossible to reach 100% FTTP coverage, in any country.
do you expect OR to run a fibre cable to every remote cottage in the middle of hill?
common sense dictates that it is simply never going to happen.

Re: FTTP Pricing

The cheapest way for openreach to lay Fibre To The UK from the space for FTTUK from the satellite fibre with speed of 1Gbps down and up from your fibre dish. As the FTTUK will be gaurantee 100% coverage in the whole UK.
