A lot of premises have gone live for FTTP. They just aren’t showing on thinkbroadband maps or BIDB. Still not me though. The CBT cables are still on the pole waiting to be connected too which is strange unless they are the cables to go to the other pole that doesn’t have the CBTs on them yet as they are very short

Just had this through direct from open reach... I expect BT (my isp) will be in touch soon.

Our engineers have just finished upgrading your area to Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband. That means right now you have access to the UK's most reliable network, with speeds of up to 1Gbps†(that's 1,000Mbps).

The benefits in a nutshell
  • 10x faster* than the average UK broadband connection
  • 5x more reliable** than any previous network
  • Connect all your devices at once with more reliable speeds
What is Ultrafast Full Fibre?

Simply put, it's the UK's most reliable broadband. Most homes and offices in the UK have 'Fibre to the Cabinet' which uses part fibre, part copper to get you connected. With Ultrafast Full Fibre broadband there's a fibre optic cable all the way from the exchange directly to your door.

Ready to make the switch?

Find out how to upgrade to Ultrafast Full Fibre here: www.openreach.com/fibre-broadband/ultrafast-full-fibre-broadband. As always, Openreach builds and maintains the network, but your broadband is still supplied by a service provider like Sky, Zen, BT, or one of the other 650+ partners we work with.


Best regards,

Sam
Openreach

* Based on data from Ofcom 'UK home broadband performance, measurement period November 2020'
** Based on data from Ofcom 'Building a full-fibre future' report 2018
† Communication providers may carry different package speeds with the current maximum average speed of 900Mbps at May 2021

nice, you will have to let us know how to the install goes for the free upgrade you get
Will do... I hope to hear soon.

Sky also dropped leaflets this week too.

That said the upcoming strike (and I'm pretty sure the cwu will vote yes) might put pay to the install been quick.

Builds are carried out in parallel across the country - literally at a rate of approx. 50 to 70,000 premises passed per week in the case of Openreach.

It’s a consequence of managing such a parallel rollout that unforeseen difficulties and hence delays, stops/starts, arise in many aspects of the build.

Together with having finite resources (human and supply chain) and work force planning, challenges and constraints with roadworks permits, way-leave issues etc, etc. it is rare for all works in a given patch therefore to be carried out, as a lay person would reasonably expect, in strictly sequential order.

It’s not easy or straightforward unfortunately.

There are areas near me that have had CBTs tied up at the base for well over half a year now. They sit inside patches of active FTTP service from Openreach.

Sorry, but its anyone's guess as to how long they could stay like that for. As @Pheasant said, it is all parallel deployment and not sequential. It'll be fitted at some point, though.
