Re: `BT FTTP 'On Demand'

very nice - just been looking at the pricing - quite expensive for home users still

 

£500 +VAT base install fee, £456 + VAT yearly rental, £200 + VAT minimum distance charge = £1387 for first year and that's before your charge for internet service as well

Re: `BT FTTP 'On Demand'

Yeah it seems to be quieter than copper Smiley Very Happy. The guidelines for openreach engineers are that the maximum noise loss should be no more than 0.05db, otherwise the spilce must be redone, although it will still work if its over.

so am i right in thinking that they don't need to dig up the roads anymore and they just do the cable overhead


If your current line is overhead, the fibre will follow. If your line is currently underground then assuming the ductwork is clear then they will put a new cable in the same duct. If the duct is blocked or you dont have a duct feeding your home and the cable is burried then it will need to be dug up and a new duct fitted/unblocked, possibly at cost to you.

You will be ok then as they run the fibre up the poles and stick kit up there before running new tubing to it and blowing fibre through to your home.

Re: `BT FTTP 'On Demand'

Openreach will replace your existing dropwire with a fibre drop tube which is basically a hollow tube (which the fibre is blown through) that also has a copper pair of wires with it.

Re: `BT FTTP 'On Demand'

It doesn't matter how far the fibre comes, you will get the stated speed.

Re: `BT FTTP 'On Demand'

Thanks for taking the time to post this thread and photos - most illuminating and has filled in a lot of holes in my knowledge of fibre installation. Cheers, Rob.

May not be the same infrastructure as this is a few years old now.

It isn't. They use CBT now.
