Looking at the bt dsl checker fttp on demand is now available in my area.

It seems it's as clear as mud as far as the installation costs.

Using another online checker, it reckons my line is 198m to the cabinet.

The fttp price guide

Is there any way I can work out the installation cost?

Well the online chat with a guy called Tom, was helpful, not!

The best answer he could come up with was look at the website.

Thank god (whoever that is to "whoever") I don't have to "bother" with VDSL (being a Virgin FTTC customer! :))

In general, the state of FTTP in this country is really lagging behind!

In the big cities, a company called Hyperoptic are wiring up apartment blocks with FTTP. I have a friend who lives in central Bristol and gets 1Gbps (up and down) with them!

Can only dream of getting those speeds here! Worcester never got cabled (Birmingham cable ran out of money during their expansion southwards) so our only option is BT.

When I went to Portugal last year, it was obvious that their FTTP rollout is way beyond ours. Something like 60%+ of the country has it available, with a headline 1Gbps speed. The providers also provide a cable TV service over the fibre (RF overlay) - the termination box in your home has an aerial connector to feed into your internal wiring. The hotel we stayed in had MEO fibre which has around 70 Free to air channels available in DVB-T so they can be tuned in on any modern TV's tuner. The same 70 channels are also simulcast as analogue cable. I thought it was pretty bizarre for an analogue cable service to be provided over a state of the art fibre internet connection!

No satellite stuff for the moment (aside from a 43cm minidish that was on the house already), Samsung SyncMaster T27B550 Smart TV & Monitor, and a few computers...

Allegedly, a BT exec said something along the lines of "nobody needs fibre optic broadband" about 10 years or so ago, so, they didn't bother installing it, then they realised their netwrks were choking to death with streaming and the addition of 4k media being streamed, things are tight as a duck's posterior, all cos of one idiot who took after Bill Gates' "Nobody needs more than 640k" claim...

"As they say, ""Well, he would, wouldn't he"! Hope he doesn't use VDSL at home "a few miles" from his local hub to "communicate".
