I noticed them digging up near the pub the other week.

Going fast...

I did hear though that the engineer enabling premises though were running about 2 a day due to the effort needed.

Not sure how true that is as its was a friend of a freind of an OR engineer.

Does any one know what ONT is been used when installs take place ?

Thanks

PS Still not had any contact from BT...

PPS Looked on the web site and I've been able to place an order, given the impending potential strike I shoud just get in. Due in about a week :)

I'd be interested in knowing what ont they use too... And how many ports it comes with. I suspect it will be single port for home.

That said my original nte came with 2.

I'm guessing your in the trade... If so do you happen to know if businesses may get a different ont by default?

Thanks

T
Nope. They'll get the same one if ordering FTTP. There is no differentiation when it comes to the ONT whether its a business or resi connection.

FTTP is showing as available now for my property (and has been since the middle of May).

It can be booked via BT, EE or Sky on their websites.

However, for TalkTalk and Vodafone it is showing as FTTP not available.

Does anyone know how long it normally takes after other providers are starting to offer FTTP for the likes of TalkTalk and Vodafone to offer it too ?

Thanks in advance

That's another 'how longs a piece of string' question...

Depends on the operator and when they deem it worthwhile commercially to get the requisite backhaul capacity at the handover + Cablelinks in place (or upgraded). Sometimes they only offer a limited bandwidth packages (sub 500 Mbps) if they are somehow constrained on this front. if they have nothing then you cant order until they do. It could be weeks or months...
