FTTP is native FTTP where Openreach have decided to provide the infrastructure rather than FTTC and is available at Infinity prices.  FTTPoD is a bespoke solution where the customer pays for the complete installation of the infrastructure to service a single premises which is extremely expensive.

Interesting. Hopefully the engineers show up on the date I was given and I get straightforward install. I think in my case it should be straightforward becuase there`s a telephone pole literally right outside my house ( 8 metres). Theres a fibre manifold on it so hopefully its just a case of running cable from there to my property or am I wrong?

I'm sure it will all be perfectly fine.

So what would the Availability chart call this native FTTP so I can watch out for that?

 

If I or one of these 10 houses be daft enough to pay the cost of the FTTP on demand to the pole we share would that mean the other 9 would have native FTTP available?

 

I'm thinking along the lines of a farmer way out in North Yorkshire who had electric supply over several miles installed and paid a lot of money then other farms on the way applied and got it on the cheap.

Showing up and getting it installed are two different things, sadly. My installer turned up when they said he would but he wasn't able to install it. Despite it being a new build estate with newly laid infrastructure, they didn't know their **bleep** from their elbow.

So here I am nearly 5 weeks from ordering and still no further forward. I did have 1.6Mb ADSL but that got cut off on Sunday when my phone line switched to BT from my previous supplier (I cancelled when I ordered FTTP as I naively assumed available to order meant it would get installed!).

So now I have no internet at all and idea when I can get FTTP despite it being "available"!
