I am a bit confused. Currently I am with Talk Talk FTTC giving me only 37mb at best. Since they don't offer FTTP to my area, I am considering moving to BT for FTTP 900mb package. Having been on the phone to them a couple of times I have been told 2 different things.
1) First customer service advisor said I would need an engineer to come to the property and install cables etc as the FTTP is only new to the area and not installed to my premises.
2) Second customer service advisor said its not needed as my 'line was recently upgraded' however, I don't see how this is possible as I only have FTTC and no cables have been installed to the property and I am still on the old copper wire line on FTTC. All I would need to do is plug in the new modem/router and it will be ready.
I rang again and a 3rd customer service advisor was actually unable to tell me either way.
Can you still get FTTP on the old copper line? I am looking to keep my landline phone when I get FTTP 900mb
The clue is in the name fibre to the premises. You will need an engineer visit to install the fibre cable and ONT (optical modem).
That's what I was thinking, just a bit weird to be getting conflicted answers on the matter from BT. Especially when one is saying nothing will need to be done except plug in the new router and turn it on.

The 2nd guy probably thought you were getting G.Fast as Ultrafast can be delivered via FTTP and or G.Fast.
