My ex who now lives in a small Cornish seaside village can get Infinity at 67.4mb but I can't - so personally FTTP roll out should wait in my humble jaundiced view.
I can only see FTTP on Demand really being beneficial for people who work from home, or if your have some cash to splash 😉
Not to sure if this has been posted since i haven't been on here in a while lol! http://www.openreach.co.uk/orpg/home/products/super-fastfibreaccess/fibretothepremisesondemand/fttpo...
There are exchange announced in the fact sheet trialling FTTP on Demand from the end of this month.
If FTTP on demand comes out I'd happy buy it to be honest.. Time to do away with the copper wiring.
I would be more than happy to get FTTP on demand if it becomes available.
A council building next door to me has a leased line so there should be some fibre ducting already installed or even possibly spare fibres available to use so would be a doddle for openreach to install it for me.
I'd love it...just to see that needle swing off the scale. but probably don't need it until streaming products (4k flims etc) become mainstream maybe never....
diminishing returns and all that given what i use 'terweb for... tunes/films/games/books not much really and i think i'm pretty common profile - so if it does turn out to be a material hike on current costs then 'no deal'. Has to be competative.
For me it's the stability at high transfer rates for upload, and the potential for symetrical speeds - getting 100mbit upload would be the icing on the cake, but the 33 that's going to be on offer gives me all the bandwidth I can use at the moment - the notion of streaming what we do in 1080p and loads of folks having the bandwidth to get it down in real time excites me. WHat we do can be seen at Vapour trails TV if you're interested. Powered by Infinity, you might say.
Bottom line - as soon as I can get it, it's getting installed.
