Hi Petecov44, I assume if you are so close to the FTTC cab you are able to get an FTTC service ok?
I have read a lot on this and whilst i could be wrong i am of the understanding that (certainly in the first instance) FTTP on Demand will only be available to customers on an FTTC enabled cab, that cant get the FTTC service because they are too far from it for the service to work. I also recently discovered that the fibre for FTTP on Demand actually comes direct from the exchange and has nothing ot do with the cab so i am not entirely sure why this is the case.
Just to re-cap i am something like 2.7km from the cab, and 3.5km from the exchange in a rural environment.
I placed an order in Nov 2013 and had a site survey in Feb this year (slight delay!) and then finally got a price back in April of, drum roll please... £19,500.00 !!
Strangely enough i haven't gone for it! Has anyone else on here had an success with FTTP on Demand?
Sorry I never got back to yo. I never went with BT in the end and went with Plusnet. I have applied via their trials page as they are still doing it.
Yes I can get 73/17 and my line is 300M from the NGA. my exchange says
|FTTP on Demand||330||30||--||Available|
So who knows. i will let you know if I hear anything
The only relevance that an FTTC cab has to FTTPoD is that there will be a fibre node nearby which FTTPoD would be supplied from.
You might be posting on a thread that i started 3 and a half years ago - but it's still relevant as i am still no closer to being able to order FTTP On Demand!
I do wonder why Openreach even bother listing this as an "available" product when no ISP is interested in reselling it! If anyone has any information about an ISP happy to sell FTTP On Demand (completely different to just regular "FTTP") then plese let me know.
Thanks for the info. When FTTP On Demand first emerged it was marketed to us that we would pay the cost of install (as you say £4k - £5k) and then thereafter you paid a monthly cost more similar to FTTC / FTTP which makes it a far more attractive product! We have been quoted less than £360 a month for a leased line!
Please can you tell me which other ISP's sell it i will contact them for up to date quotes? Thanks
