About this deal

One other related FTTP change that might be worth noting relates to remote nodes. The maximum reach of an FTTP splitter (a bit of kit that divides up optical fibres from an exchange to properties) is 58 kilometres. So customers living further away than this from an exchange in remote or rural areas can’t get ultrafast speeds. I’m planning to switch to FTTP in early December, but I’m not sure there’s room on my wall for the big unit. What’s the chance the engineer will turn up with the small one?

Think you’re big on value for money. Openreach are being paid to deliver FTTP/C not to build new exchanges when not necessary. They’re trying, rightly, to retire exchanges not build more.Following pressure from MPs and BT’s competitors, a review was set up by the UK’s telecoms regulator, Ofcom. It was concerned that as BT owned the network most other broadband providers used, it held a monopoly over the UK telecoms industry, as well as an unfair advantage. There was also criticism that faults weren’t being fixed for competitor internet service providers (ISPs) as fast as they were for BT. Connect to your router using an Ethernet (wired) connection and switch off the Wi-Fi on your computer. If the speed test results are okay when you're using the cable, it could be the Wi-Fi that's causing the issues Ethernet connection is normal between Openreach fibre modem and Hub (Port 1 is where engineer will install). As far as the other part goes I can’t say I’ve ever seen a PON solution where the customers / building owner provide their own pig tails between units and a fibre tray. I’ve seen point to point where this is the case and there’re an ODF in a basement with wires-only or managed router provision at the end but not where it’s PON to an SFP.

When you say slightly smaller than the current ONT? the current ONT is (H)134mm x (W)115mm x (D)25mm any idea what size the new one is? As a customer, you shouldn’t need to get in touch with Openreach for most broadband issues. Openreach is not an internet service provider (ISP). Airband are installing overhead FTTP across much of the area, but my understanding is that our power distribution company (Scottish Power Energy Networks) has refused access to their low voltage poles (i.e. those carrying power from the pole-mounted transformer to the customer).PORT 1: Here you plug in an Ethernet cable that runs to your BT Hub. Some modems have multiple ports. Homeowners of new-builds have, in the past, complained about delays for phones and broadband. There’s also a concern that the Openreach set-up means there’s less need to keep prices competitive for customers. Calls were made for BT to put its local access network (LAN) up for sale, but instead, the decision was made for this network to be a completely separate entity. To this day, it’s still owned by BT group, and Ofcom regulates this to make sure all communications providers can still access this network fairly.
