Author Topic: Special Offer for New Openreach Full Fibre Infrastructure Build Product  (Read 427 times)

Openreach (BT) has announced that they’ve introduced an exemption up to £2800 on the first Ethernet Access Direct (EAD) or Fibre-to-the-Premises (FTTP) broadband connection charge, when ordered following network provision via their new Full Fibre Infrastructure Build (FFIB) product.

FFIB is a new commercial product, which is available for individual or multi-site network infrastructure upgrades to full fibre connectivity, albeit designed with the public sector in mind (i.e. local government, schools and public buildings). On the surface this may sound a little like FTTP on Demand (FoD) but it takes a different approach.

The product essentially deploys Openreach’s fibre network (duct infrastructure and fibre delivery) into any location that is not included in their current FTTP roll-out plans. Once completed customers can then be served from the new fibre distribution point, such as by ordering Ethernet leased lines or FTTP broadband circuits.

    Openreach Product Description

    FFIB terminates on Network Terminating Equipment (NTE) – included in the building. Having FFIB to sites ensures that the same infrastructure is able to carry all available fibre based services from Gigabit capable Broadband, Ethernet and also Optical high bandwidth services.

    FFIB is a “passive” fast fibre network build solution – as a local body or private client you can then buy “active” services from your choice of Communications Provider (CP).

    Key benefits:

    * We can give you the full fibre connectivity you want – using our existing network and ducts – avoiding the need to dig up streets.

    * FFIB takes fibre closer to local residents and businesses meaning they can obtain fibre services more easily.

    * If you want to keep it simple and cost-effective – it makes sense to work with the established biggest provider of fibre connectivity in Britain – Openreach.

    * Once built, our proposition is designed to blend seamlessly with the existing Openreach network offering simplicity for local bodies in terms of ongoing maintenance/upgrades and access to the fullest range of speeds and network products.
