Fibre to premises

i posted on here some time ago about being moved closer to an all in one cabinet which is 1km from my house

codelook reports it operational from july but i know that live to live has to take place but not sure if this has happened

im getting 5mb down and 1 up - my bt hub does report an infinity package but this seems very slow still

i note from dsl checker below it was last tested in may so perhaps ill get a boost when it goes live?

on a different note the dsl checker reports fibre to premises availability - is this an easy upgrade option and perhaps is the answer to get the superfast broadband i crave without waiting for an infinity increment?

Re: Fibre to premises

Unfortunately that fibre to the premises is FTTP on Demand which is a business product and costs a few thousand £££

https://www.zen.co.uk/yourhome/superfast-fibre-broadband-packages/fibre-to-the-premises/

so nothing to do with for instance these zen packages which are reasonable ? - a different product?

Re: Fibre to premises

Yes, a different product. The ZEN product is native FTTP not FTTPoD.

It is slow for fibre, but that's slightly better than the BTw Checker estimates for you. You must be a long way from your cab. You're getting as good as you can get.

Re: Fibre to premises

Only if you can convince all your neighbours to upgrade at the same time as you! If it is only you taking up the product either your ISP takes a big hit or you do.

Re: Fibre to premises

i am 1km from the new all in one - previously i was 2km away and per earlier discussions we thought the stats on the dsl checker were reporting the old connection?

 

so that when live to live happens i would get at boost say to 25mb?

 

is there any way I can check if live to live has happened- i would like the proper infinity not the continuation of this 'faster broadband' which is quite slow but as you say a lot better than previous adsl

 

Im paying about 60 a mth for line rental and this product to bt- seems a lot thats why I became interested in fttp on demand - the monthly starting 1/2/18 is quite reasonable and all other fixed charges are reduced or eliminated

 

the one issue i see is i am down a shared lane and the current poles are in a set of fields with some underground

 

is a fttp on demand entirely underground and given bt already have way leaves is there any difficulty in running fibre instead of overhead ie just a simple replacement on this part of the road- the rest would be 200 m of public highway
