Wondered if anyone knew about this: https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/07/05/openreach_admits_50000_premises_in_its_fttp_network_will_on...
Basically there is a bit of kit on the BT network that slows the speeds from the Gigabit capabilities, I wondered if anyone knew if BT/Open Reach are planning to replace these and if so when?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for the reply, It's a shame it isn't a priority. The implementation feels a little half finished at the moment.
Is there anywhere I could try to get an estimate of when the kit will be updated? I'll be coming up to a date where I can change providers and VM offer a faster service locally for less per month. Happy to stay with BT as they have the capability to be the fastest provider, but would like to know when its going to happen.
It has nothing to do with BT Retail (your provider) as they know nothing more than any other ISP does. Only Openreach will have the answer you seek. You could try them on Twitter. @OpenreachHelp
Openreach are already in the process of changing out ECI FTTP Equipment with Huawei and Nokia Equipment.
Some ECI DSLAMS are also going to be swapped out for Huawei ones as well.
Openreach sell WBC FTTP Speeds of up to 1gbps but there’s only a couple of bespoke CP’s that actually sell it at the minute and BT Consumer isn’t one of them.
