Openreach have been installing FTTP in our road for the last 6 weeks, after the first few days 6 weeks ago where they installed a Blue cord to each house. The Openreach engineers now arrive about once a week for just over half a day, do some work in the trunking underground with some cable then dissapear for a week then do the same again. Is this slow progress normal?. We have also received a letter from K-Com saying they will be installing FTTP in the road shortly, speaking to people in the road say whoever installs first will get their custom, K-Com have indicated they will take 2 weeks once they start. So it looks if BT/Openreach have a problem at the speed they are progressing. Is this normal for Openreach I ask?
It’s Openreach on this side of the country. They have been busy now for the same period of time, and we await firm news of installation. It’s a community project locally, based on applications for grants.
Suspect that the install to the home will complete around mid- June, when restrictions settle down.
