A bit confused

Ranger

Member
Hi, I have managed to completely confuse myself and someone might be able to explain the answer in a way even I can understand.

At the current time I have wireless broadband at home (Broadway Broadband) and ditched my copper line the same time, using VOIP and mobiles for phone calls. This saved me about Ā£50 a month from my BT copper internet days (line rental, broadband cost etc) and increased speeds tenfold.

We are now down for FTTP installation in the next 6 months and my question is can I get a FTTP connection without having to resurrect the copper line?

As Martin says, is the FTTP being deployed by Broadway, Openreach or somebody else? However generally the answer is yes, you don't have to have a copper line, but if it's an Openreach deployment then ISPs can decide to give you one (transition product) or do a normal data-only service (most are now going data-only, which means no copper).

The fibre is being installed by OpenReach as part of a community broadband project (ruralgigabit.org).

From the responses it seems yes I can which is lucky as the master socket might now be behind plasterboard after renovations at home šŸ¤«
