I live in a rural area where a lot of work has been done recently to try to get fibre broadband enabled. When I enter my postcode on the Openreach availability checker, I get the response :
" The cabinet that serves your premises is live, but your speeds aren't as fast as we'd like them to be. Your area has been reviewed and there is a plan to do further work to increase speeds via FTTP technology. "
Does this mean that they might supply a fibre line to each house, free of charge ? And how might that affect our line rental fees ?
Any help or thoughts would be much appreciated.
Ask BT when approached what it involves and specifically how easy it will be to transfer to another ISP later if you accept their offer of FTTP. You could lose fibre altogether if you change to another ISP. Record heir answers if possible
I would suggest that you read this thread and then decide if what billyboy1 is in any way relevant as it would appear that he is a bit confused about the roll of BT ISP and Openreach when it comes to the provision of FTTP and the take up of FTTP by other ISPs.
