@mtremlett 

Couple of other things.

 

There is no real speed drop off with FTTP. Line distance or quality makes no difference. You should get close to whatever package you choose.

 

There is no rhyme nor reason to the OR FTTP schedule. You could go live this week or it could be next year. It's not beyond the realm of possibilities that PlusNet will launch before you're live on FTTP.

Wow, that's the first time I've seen 'Waiting List' against WBC FTTP.

FTTC often has that condition when all the available VDSL ports in the cabinet are taken, but I was under the impression that when FTTP was installed to a location there were enough connections provided (CBTs these days, previously Manifolds) for all the properties served by a particular DP.

@RobPN 

My guess is that OR have physically committed to the build at this location but it's not yet complete.

 

Hopefully the OP will post back when it does become available.

Re: ETA on 66mb+ fibre?

For info, I am moving to Sky for FTTP.

 

I phoned PN to get an idea of the early cancellation charge and was advised if I moved to either BT or EE for FTTP then once connected I spoke to PN again they would waive/refund the cancellation charge.

 

May be helpful - wish I had known this earlier.

@bmc mentioned it earlier

If you want faster speed now then you'll need to change providers. There are several main stream ones available. I can't guarantee this but PlusNet were offering to waive any early termination fees to members who moved to BT.
