FTTP Orders - "to be or not to be, that is the question"

Hi All,

A bit of a weird one this...

Openreach have recently announced on their fibre checker that FTTP is available for my home and list a number of providers. I am already with BT, so it makes sense to stay with them, especially since I am tied into a contract that would cost a little to leave.

Now, if I use the BT Business fibre checker site to check my postcode it shows FTTP is available and I am able to place and order:-)

If I use BT Consumer fibre checker site to check my postcode it shows FTTP is not available I am offered adsl at a blistering 2.2 Mbit/s:-(

If I try another provider, lets say "Aquiss" all is good, as a consumer I can get fibre.

What's going on here? I just want to place and order and have it delivered as soon as the Covid-19 restrictions ease enough.

Thanks

 

 

Patrick

@patricki 

The BT Business checker would be showing Fibre On Demand, which is an very expensive business only product.

So give them a ring in the morning, you may get in the June queue for installs.
