FTTP Query

Dear all,

I hope you're all well in these weird times!

I've noticed recently that FTTP is being deployed in my village (Newton Poppleford) which is on the Colaton Raleigh (WWCRAL) exchange. There hasn't been much movement recently, with only small patches of fibre deployed overhead in random parts of the exchange area, with no properties being able to order. Does anyone know how long it typically takes for FTTP to be deployed and ready to order?

Cheers,

Will

It varies, by.. a lot. I usually give them up to 12-18 months for live service from the point where the network deployment begins, but these days it can be considerably quicker to put a new community live. However, all sorts of problems can crop up on the ground, such as issues with access, power supplies and blocked cable ducts.

Our build started on 22nd March 2017 and still not completed due to problems with new poles needed replacing, road closures (which need council planning) blocked ducts to clear. The list goes on but as others have said circumstances will determine just how long.

You are listed in the Area 3 Market Towns and Villages Build Programme and are connected to the Fibre First in Exmouth and Ottery St Mary. With OR making good progress now. I'd say it was quite promising that you will have it sometime next year.

Thanks, Meatball. Just curious, where did you find out this information? We don't desperately need it (line rate of 55/8), but will be nice to get off this ancient infrastructure! Does anyone know if there's a page showing how a FTTP network is built, because some areas have had FTTP up for a month and still no movement?

Finally got my FTTP installed today after a 3 year wait.
Due to problem after problem it has been a very long time but today I am a happy bunny.:)

Your ping is a little higher than I expected on FTTP. It's not bad by any means but 1-4ms is achievable on FTTP.

It depends where he lives. Just sending a light pulse down a fibre and back (at 2/3 speed of light) takes about 1ms for every 100km.
