Is that saying that FTTP is available? She lives in Truro, the nearest I've seen trials at was St Agnes which isn't far away at all.

Re: FTTP available?

It's saying that FTTP on Demand is available, this isn't the same as the FTTP product that's used for the trial.
I've yet to see anyone marketing FTTP on Demand as a product and it will be v. expensive!
Wholesale (not retail) service prices here:

Retail will be this plus VAT plus ISP bandwidth/server costs plus profit margin etc...

There is a fibre Cabinet on my road, about 300 yards from my Flat, so how come when I check on PN site I can't get fibre?

Re: FTTP available?

Does your phone line connect to the phone cabinet that FTTC cabinet connects to? And if so is the FTTC cabinet ready for service yet?
Does entering your phone number in the BT Broadband Availability checker say that FTTC is available to you?

Re: FTTP available?

I think WBA is Wholesale Broadband Access and DSL is Digital Subscriber Line. I wonder if this means the cabinet belongs to a provider other than BT?

Well according to Plusnet, I should be able to get Fiber by early February, depends how much it is though cos Dad's got a cob on about me spending money and he thinks the only reason I want Fiber is because he's got it.
