Further update from the guys completing the fibre on my DP.

They were told the confusion with the ducting was despite having BT chambers, the contractor used Virgin ducting. :/  I tend to think this is another fairy-tale, still not convinced the ducting ever made it across the road.

Still, it all seems to be happening now.  Just checked and across the road from me is finally live, so seems I will be able to order very soon now.

Darn it: Send Order to Supplier - FAILED 18/06/2022 09:15

Shaking stick at Openreach!  >:(

Wags finger at the person who placed the order at Zen, apparently he missed some fields when submitting the order.  :lol:

You will get it soon  :).
What speed are you going for?.

I just went with 100/20 no need to wast money on anything higher as I do not need it.

Are you keeping your pfsense box, If you remember I re-configured mine to 'Two' WAN's with fall over.
WAN one = my Eclipse ADSL2 connection .
WAN two = my FTTP with  Trunk Networks.

Works a treat.  :)

Given my current setup with three WANs, you need to ask?  ::)

I'm currently paying 55.99/month for all three, so 59.99/month for 900/100 is an absolute no-brainer.  :idea: :yay:

Man I'm paying 100 for 2!

28.99 for Zen 80/20 (excluding line rental), 10 Voxi (deal for people on low income for six months), 17 for Three (just one of their random 12 month deals).
I did buy the routers outright so I could go for SIM-only/PAYG packages.

I did forget line rental as that's with BT Basic at 5.16/month and AAISP L2TP at 9.20/month.

Will move landline to AAISP VoIP which will drop that to 1.20, not decided on the L2TP service yet as its not been especially stable over 5G and pfSense has a nasty habit of not bringing it back up when it drops, which kinda negates the point of having it as a backup into my LAN if the main WAN goes down.

What would be ideal is if a CityFibre ISP offered a really basic, cheap, package for VoIP backup purposes.  The catch is I need a static IP on it so I can also keep my XMPP server connectivity, as you cannot do DDNS to a subdomain that has more than one IP on it (at least on Cloudflare).

When your ISP has an activation date, is that an estimate based on when they think an engineer will be booked, or an indication that an engineer HAS been booked?

I made what seems like it might have been a mistake in telling Zen they don't need to call to book an engineer as were always home, so now I'm not sure if one has been booked or not as the portal has an activation date but no indication of an engineer booking.

Just wait until normal business hours, tomorrow, make a telephone call to Zen and ask.

Fortunately don't have to, my e-mail was broken again (curse you Webmin on Centos, it just keeps crashing and then letsencrypt doesnt get run so my e-mail dies every 3 months) and the confirmation came through when I fixed it:

We're delighted to confirm that an appointment has been scheduled for an  engineer to visit your premises and install the required equipment.
Date: 04/07/2022 Time slot: AM

Well I do need to contact them again anyway, they said I have to request the engineer wear a mask AFTER the appointment had been booked.
