Question on recent exchange upgrade works

Good afternoon

I have a question which hopefully someone from an ISP or Openreach can answer.

My town is on the Openreach market towns list to get FTTP as part of their initial deployment. Unfortunately as a general member of the public that is all the information that has been provided. It could he months or years still.

I've just come across this which shows my exchange having planned network infrastructure upgrades which I'm wondering is part of prerequisite works for FTTP deployment in my town:


Is anyone able to advise If this could possibly relate to the planned FTTP deployment which means my town could well be underway?

The list of planned market towns is:


Many thanks

My town was on this list but not heard a peep since and on roadworks nothing is showing for the next 12 months.

Given up waiting and moved with basically the sole reason being better broadband.

I've been keeping an eye on roadworks as well however they could add it anytime and work could start anytime I.e next few month's.

Also if ducting / poles are already in place would it show on roadworks?

I've been monitoring one.network and did see an influx of pole replacements taking place which either means the poles were at their age limit or being replaced as part of FTTP works... who knows its anyones guess.

Be nice if they gave an indication like they did with FTTC with an interactive map with proper dates but to be fair that was never accurate.

My suspicions were right, checked thinkbroadband map today and a load of streets have appeared having Openreach FTTP...

Just hope Plusnet sort thier act out and start offering a FTTP package

You could be waiting a very long time. BT owns Plusnet, but wants to push FTTP users to the more expensive BT or EE brands.
