Re: fibre being run !

Obviously everywhere varies, but from the OR guys running it in the streer to the time we could purchase was about two months.

Re: fibre being run !

Would love to know what the full process is for FTTP. We’ve had openreach on our estate pulling cables and connecting CBTs in June/July but still can’t order as of today. Wasn’t sure if the adjacent estates all have to be ready and they are inter linked somehow?

@Gary_C  mate ours said exactly the same until Thursday...

We are sorry.jpg

Then yesterday went straight to this...😯

So the checkers may not tell the real story, I ordered FTTP this morning. 😉

Re: fibre being run !

Cheers.

It was interesting to track the build from the first bits going in in june to the last efforts this month. I imagine though things have been difficult this year so its probably atypical.

Our son is a professional musician and does a lot of streaming for his company and with QoS prioritising his traffic, and I only get 9Mbps upload so you get tell he is working. I am looking forward to a snappier system 🙂

Re: fibre being run !

So chatting to the OR engineer, it looks as if they are targeting all houses that were built post 2000 ish that therefore had lines run to the house in ducting as it means they can up their installation numbers to meet targets while keeping the cost to a minimum.

What I do find really odd is the lack of advertising by anyone. The only reason I knew it was coming was by seeing the vans and watching what they were doing. A lot of my neighbours didn't have a clue that fibre is now available.

The OR guy even said its not in their interest to advertise its availability.

Will be interesting to see if 900mbps is overkill for me.

Re: fibre being run !

So today is meant to be the day.

Yesterday the appointment was showing confirmed between 08:00 and 13:00  but today its changed to confirmed.na, not sure what that means. I also got an email again confirming the appointment but including 'corona virus and how it might affect you' link to the spiel stating that they wont come into the home.

Be interesting how this one plays out.
