Forced to take fttp

I have moved house and have been told I have to move on to fttp instead of standard broadband. This will take over a month to set up. I was told this would be the same for all Internet providers. Is this correct?

Very likely, yes. Where fttp is available, Openreach have a program of designating areas as 'fibre priority'

This means that they will not accept new orders for copper based products i.e via a phone line, from any supplier.

The other problem is that Openreacnh are suffering lack of engineering effort in some areas which is delaying instzallations

Superusers are not staff, but they do have a direct line of communication into the business in order to raise issues, concerns and feedback from the community.

Use the address version of the following to check the property. Enter you post code only and select the address from the drop down list.


Below the results window is their a narrative which states Priority Fibre Exchange (or something similiar). To confrim FTTP is available you should see WBC FTTP in the left hand window.
