Openreach Community Fibre Partnership - the more the merrier?

Hello! We live in a Neighbourhood of 120 Houses & 120(ish) Flats, two miles from the Middle of Manchester.

Whilst Virgin have dug up our streets last week, we've been told that our particular area (a mixture Private and Social Housing, Public Land Dwellings and some Private Leaseholds) is not included in their Network Build - our street was dug up for a 'Business Build' (FTTN?) only. They have no plans to provide us with consumer service, even though our Neighbours 100m away were recently granted access to all their products.

ANYWAY, we've been told to start the ball rolling with an Openreach CFP instead.

Thing is, all the flats have access to Hyperoptic (who continually state they have no interest in providing services to the HOUSES in our area).

Do I include those Flats on our CFP submission? Arguably, they already have FTTP access (albeit, not from Openreach).

Is it the more the merrier?

Or the more added to the list, the more expensive it'll be for us eventually?

Cheers!

Openreach's CFP quotes don't always follow logic or common sense, but generally adding more premises tends to increase costs. Larger flat/apartment blocks can also be tricky as they may attract special access requirements (new laws are being developed to tackle that). Plus the value of deploying FTTP to flats where a rival gigabit provider exists may impact Openreach's assumptions about take-up.

At the end of the day you can always request quotes with flats included and then excluded, but expect all of this to take a long time.
