Im 200m from the nearest Fibre Node and am not FTTP. It will cost me minimum £1500 install and up to £10000 they have said. Then its 300 a month rental. An unrealistic and so prohibitive costing. BP
I seriously considered paying for my neighbour to have it installed and then running some cat-5 to my property.Maybe you could consider something like that if there's an opportunity to run some cable ??
The net result is I have been disconnected from my previous supplier and do not have any internet at all and no idea when I will!
A cautionary tale for anyone who has ordered the new broadband service. I live in Peplins and ordered my new 'fast' broadband connection on 13 Feb and was given an install date of 2 March. The 2nd came, I had the morning off waiting for the engineer to arrive, he never came!! When I finally got through to BT they said that the engineer had been cancelled but they had not told me, so a wasted morning! If that wasn't bad enough I had no broadband, again after connecting I was amazed by their response- they informed me that Openreach had informed them that there was NO capacity in the exchange for the new FTTP service and that they didn't know when there would be even though they had sold it to me and incidentally taken my payment. The net result is I have been disconnected from my previous supplier and do not have any internet at all and no idea when I will!
- I'll find out tomorrow...
Just to put my mind at rest, has anyone who was already on BT Infinity 2 made the switch to FTTP and BT Infinity 4 without a hitch and with a painless, stress-free migration? Mine is being installed the week after next. We are at the lower end of Moffats.
All-in-all, from the rather lengthy upgrade ordering process (phone), I'd say things went pretty well. You may or may not get some tail time on the old Infinity 2 service. We got 5 days - ample for switching all devices over to the new service.
The person was very apologetic on the phone, but it doesn't help when you have had to take a day's leave to be at home for the engineer !!!!!!!
