Openreach (BT) has today launched their consultation on the prospects for a “large-scale” roll-out of Fibre-to-the-Premise (FTTP) ultrafast broadband technology across the United Kingdom by around 2025, which in theory could see the operator’s “full fibre” network reach up to 10 million premises.

At present the operator’s roll-out of 1Gbps capable FTTP technology is expected to reach 2 million homes and businesses by 2020, while their ‘up to’ 330Mbps hybrid-fibre G.fast solution will do 10 million premises by the same date and many more by 2025. However Ofcom, the EU and the Government all want to see more “full fibre” in Openreach’s diet.

The industry consultation, which was first mooted during early May 2017 (here), is currently only available for ISPs to view and it promises to investigate various related issues including “potential demand, network architecture, deployment choices and cost recovery options.” ...

"Recently managed to halve deployment costs"

I wonder if this might make FoD more viable in the not too distant future.

Same, unless the price drops by approximately one third to half I won't be touching it.

Same for me. Current construction charges are just utterly insane.

Just to clarify, it is only available to those ISPs who have gone through the Openreach customer establishment process.  Any ISP that is not an Openreach customer - and there are a few - cannot participate.  This is is a commercial exercise, i.e. based on profit generation, not a genuine consultation... it excludes not-for-profits like North Skye Broadband and Broadband for the Rural North.

Indeed. It is a consultation of Openreach customers, so that should be mentioned.

There is of course a profit oriented motive. Openreach are a private company with a fiduciary duty to deliver returns to shareholders.
