I don’t see how it can literally be forever as there won’t be any VDSL2/FTTC one day. Your forever might be about the same as mine though  ;)

The waiting game is horrible though but what i do know if ever it happens one day i'm jumping ship to FTTP like a fly on a window asap.   :lol:

Not the case, we don't have poles on our estate as it's all underground, yet they were out surveying the ducts and spraying on all the pavements in readiness for FTTP.

Not sure why Openreach told me that i just think he didn't know like when they came over i asked for a DLM reset which he didn't do but stated he did. If he did my speed would of picked back up straight away.  ::)

I got told by Openreach that I won't get FTTP due to not having one of those wooden poles where fibre runs to the houses so I'll be stuck with VDSL forever.  :'(

They're in the process of installing FTTP to my street.
No poles here.

Instead of having those wooden poles where copper and fibre runs to the houses you probably have underground ducting... induced if these copper and fibre are run to houses.

Seems a very odd comment for an engineer to make.

Very strange indeed but I think he was a strange guy in the first place.  :D

I doubt virtually anyone would consider bonding FTTP haha :D.

I came back to this thread having seen it linked on another and the quoted made me laugh.

Seeing your comment made me smile.  :)

It's a case of those that can will do so. (And why not?)

I'm obsessed but moving to Gigabit for as much as I'm paying for 2xVDSL + Three 4G seems like a pretty good deal, no need to double the price just because I could.  Although being a few years away, who knows, maybe 2Gbit will have launched by then?  ::)

Although it did make me laugh with Carl saying Gigabit wasn't transformative, then he goes and gets a second one.

I would be interested to know what the performance is like at say 04:10 and 05:50; not on a whole hour boundary in case activity is triggered by timed jobs that start at that exact integer hours time. When no one is around then it will be testing the ISP’s network, not much of a challenge of course. It will also be testing TCP. I’d love to know how well TCP handles a 2 × 1 Gbps link.

@CarlT What did you say, what router h/w are you using now?

There are two versions of 'underground' feeds .... ducted and DIG (Direct in ground).

Ducted is straightforward.

A percentage of the DIG surveys we do will be omitted from the build due to high-costs (to be picked up at with future programmes such as FVR or the final 10%), but before it gets to that stage we will ask if going overhead (installing poles) is a preferred solution with the local community. If it's a yes, then it will get built.

So the engineer may have been alluding to that scenario with his comment ??
