True, and nothing really matters until I see them putting fibre in the local ductwork anyway.  But I was quite enjoying theorising about what they were doing using the information provided.

Same here, it was nice knowing where it was being installed etc. But alas that info's no longer available.

I noticed the document was updated in February and I'm back to Delayed due to operational reasons.

What's the point of keeping it listed as "to start in next 3 months" then putting in a caveat like that?

FINALLY, the map has changed to "build in progress" but my address lookup still hasn't updated to mention "coming soon" like it did before.

Ah well, seems things are moving forward at last.

Spotted an Openreach fella looking at some poles on my street a couple of weeks ago (S2). Followed by some guys jamming things through ducts last week. Left yellow markings of 'RR' on the covers. Should I be getting excited yet?  :fingers:

Sounds like it could be the start of something, may well be a long journey yet though :)

To be fair I can get by on my current 80Mbps line but the prospect of gigabit being available is quite nice. Although recently signed up for another 24 months with TalkTalk. Not sure if they'd let me switch to their FTTP plan mid contract. I live in a maisonette that forms the bottom of a block of flats. I'm guessing the fibre would have to come in the same way the copper does currently?

I'm pretty sure RR means rodded and roped.

Flats can be problematic, as they need the landlords permission to do the installation work, which means wayleaves.

Our new build estate has just gone live on FTTP and all the flats have been skipped due to wayleave issues.. sure its a temporary skip but must be annoying for those that live in them none the less.

From your description, it sounds like you fall under the MDU (Multiple Dwelling Units), tag. Conversley, other premises are classed as SDU (Single Dwelling Units).

I'm afraid we only provide capacity at the nearest point of entry into the premises (sometimes referred to as a 'buddi-box'), or where possible, in the cupboard/riser/etc where the existing copper distribution point is currently sited.

Once the whole PON is built, we partially commission the SDU aspect, leaving the MDU to be picked up by an approved contractor to install, if and when wayleaves permission is granted by the MDU landlord.

PS - I would say Ronski's guess at RR and its meaning, is a good one.

Thanks for the info. I'm not sure what the deal is with my property as I have my own access (external front door) whereas the people in the flats have their own external door leading to a communal staircase. I currently just have an Openreach socket in the hallway not far from the front door.

I'm not sure it works the same with Maisonettes as they usually do not have enclosed communal areas like flats often do and most often (in Sheffield at least) are council owned.

Did they actually do anything on these days? I've noticed they just don't seem to be turning up recently. My pole has supposedly had works on it for multiple days from July/August but still nothing new.

No idea, mum is vulnerable so I've literally not left the house in a year. :(

A lot of these jobs have been showing up for months, but with so many coming up all at once I'm fairly confident at least some of them must be happening.

Fortunately I can see my own pole from the house so I will know once its actually done, but its not been on the list yet.
