FTTP upgrade available soon

So the Openreach site shows we will be upgraded to FTTP soon, we have FTTC at  the moment.

Any idea what timeline they mean by soon ?

Sorry but only openreach know the timescale of 'soon'. Just need to keep using the dslchecker as that will show when available

You can call and ask customer services to send an NGA form which will get them the information you need. You will usually see openreach updating the lines months before it becomes available to order though.

I'm sure it's very variable, but if it helps Openreach installed fibre in my road on 22nd July - and I was able to place an order in mid-September.

A long lens and the OR guys waving their paperwork around was all I needed to work out what they were doing in the street 🙂

Similar situation here. Lots of OR activity locally 3 months ago, and nothing.......no notifications or anything from BT.

However when checking at https://www.bt.com/broadband/deals I could see the message You could be doing more online with Full Fibre 900, and you can get BT TV. See below for your personal speed range.

So signed up with BT for FTTP there and then. All other ISPs were reporting that Fibre was not available!

Here Openreach completed the street digging in late July and eventually I got FTTP in early November.

Mainly because many ISPs don't offer FTTP
