Sorry dnpark38, it's just a normal £9.99 postage cost for the hub for me.

No it was not wrong to ask a question, that is what the forum is for.

 

What can happen however is that when somebody asks a question and it gets answered in such away that it then starts a whole new series of questions and answers which then takes over the OP's thread or leads to confusion about who is answering what and to whom.

 

If you are confused about FTTP and FTTP on Demand you should either post your questions on the thread you have already started or start a new thread about it. That way you can ask as many questions as you want without it confusing another posters thread.

Re: Thought it was way too good to be true.....

Thanks.

I got sorted on the native and on demand FTTP earlier in other threads.

I do try to keep to subject and appreciate,

"If you are confused about FTTP and FTTP on Demand you should either post your questions on the thread you have already started or start a new thread about it. That way you can ask as many questions as you want without it confusing another posters thread."

For the moment I'm assumming that  Starwire2000 is using alternative words for the two methods.

No, starwire2000 is describing the physical process of connecting either version of FTTP, there are 2 methods of connection.

@gg30340: No, I intend my request for his BT Broadband Availability Checker estimate to be addressed to the OP of this thread, @Park_Ranger.

 

Anyway, thanks, it has now been answered. The OP is indeed going for WBC FTTP.

 

As you correctly pointed out, when someone other than the OP asks a Q about their own situation, it can be confusing who is answering who, but my posts are always aimed at the OP unless stated otherwise (as this 1).

Re: Thought it was way too good to be true.....

 

 

Well an Openreach chap turned up, but it's still a no go.

 

Seems the CBT (Connectorised Block Terminal Fibre) is not on the pole he expected it to be (As shown on his map) and is more than 160 metres away, the CBT should be on the pole outside of our house.

 

Apparently this is something to do with the contractors and he is reporting the problem back to his superiors.

 

Not a lot I can do for now, might leave it a day or two and chase them up to see what's happening.

 

And I have to eat humble pie, the missus has been winding me up for 3 weeks saying this is not actually going to happen, I have been saying that it will, Iv'e been assured by the FTTP team that it will happen on the 29th............

Re: Thought it was way too good to be true.....

Sounds kinda similar to my issue where the Openreach records for my house had me connecting to the wrong equipment. What happened for me was someone had to come and do a survey (on newly laid infrastructure) and then Openreach update their records to reflect the correct equipment. They cancel the order and then create a new order based upon the updated records.

Re: Thought it was way too good to be true.....

 

 

Just a quick update............

 

Just had a BT contractor (The ones that installed the cable I'm guessing) to do a survey and take some pictures.

 

He said it's an easy job moving the fibre cable along two poles to outside our gate (Where it should have been anyway).

 

I don't know if they move the CBT or put an extra one on our pole.

 

And he thinks we should be up and running in two weeks. (If it's before Christmas I'll be happy).

 

My original 10th of November order is still open.
