Re: FTTP and Exchange Only

Sky don’t sell Openreach FTTP as yet, they are in the process of doing it.

Secondly just because you’re 300m from the Exchange it doesn’t mean running 300m of Fibre Cable.

FTTP comes from a Splitter that’ll be connected to a Head End, which will be in the Parent Exchange. The Exchange you’re on may be a Child Exchange. It’s Parent could be 20+ km away.

Re: FTTP and Exchange Only

Not precious about Sky - if switching to BT would enable me to get a fibre service then I'd do it.

The SWPTY exchange shows its enabled for FTTP 'in some areas' (no idea what that means from my perspective and my EO line), but it made me think that it's already setup for FTTP and theres 'something' which can be done for my EO line - BT/Sky/Other.

Re: FTTP and Exchange Only

As both @Starwire2000 and I have said, forget about the EO thing, it is totally irrelevant in the context of FTTP.

Re: FTTP and Exchange Only

Have already contacted them (and their predecessor) and over the last 5 years, have just received a combination of excuses and fake timelines.

I understand why I can't get FTTC on an EO line, but just trying to understand why I can't get FTTP when the exchange is enabled for it (if an EO line is irrelevant for FTTP).

Re: FTTP and Exchange Only

Just because the exchange is enabled would not mean that it is available to you. There is a lot of external infrastructure that
Needs to be installed.

It just means that FTTP is  available at some locations in that exchange area, not necessarily at every location.
