Indeed ..... first hit I did, revealed a duct section being put in for a PON just off Wood Ln. Completion date is actually todays date.

Pretty much BAU on our FTTP delivery workstreams (Fibre cities, Retro-New sites, New sites, Rural, MDU), albeit with sometime smaller teams, due to the obvious challenges we face at this moment.

 :) :)

I registered my interest when I found out our area was scheduled for FTTP, and the other day I actually had an email from Openreach confirming we are planned to get it (subject to the usual), which is good news  ;D

On my walk today I noticed many BT manholes with RR marked on them including ones near my cabinet. Is this something to do with it.

I'm sure it is, and I'm guessing that RR means Roped & Rodded, loads around our estate have been done, some have distances which I think are to blockages perhaps.

Thanks to the FTTP Surprise thread I went on the mentioned site and registered my interest. Looks from the write up on that site that the fibre will be available from ISPs like FTTC is today so I may be able to move to fibre with TT as I've just signed a new contract with them for 18 months, I'll have to wait and see.

Stuart, yes in theory any ISP that uses the FFTC network can supply via FTTP, but many don't, but more are getting on board. TT currently doesn't, but are expected to soon.

This thread might well be of interest https://community.talktalk.co.uk/t5/Fibre-Broadband/How-to-order-TalkTalk-Openreach-FTTP-Future-Fibre/td-p/2453962

I got my notification as well Ronski. About a month back OR were working in Foads Lane so I asked the guys how things were progressing. One of the engineers kindly lifted up the cover to our chamber and pointed out the blue rope ready to pull the cable through. He claimed they were supposed to be finished by August, but that may well be put back now.

I notice plenty of duct clearing going on around Southwood currently, and in the centre of Ramsgate. They have already cleared the ducts around Cliffsend, so hopefully the actual cabling should go quickly. I am surprised though that there doesn't seem to be much if any activity in and around Broadstairs. Maybe the survery showed very little need for duct clearing? Or maybe its been pushed back to later in the summer?

I think they are concentrating on Ramsgate first, apart from surveying I've seen no road works for Broadstairs, plenty for Ramsgate though, and mostly the areas you've said. Seems like they've started the far side of Ramsgate and are working their way across towards Broadstairs.

Spotted the first scheduled roadworks in Broadstairs, on Northwood Road, clearing ducts, over head works and other work relating to Thanet Fibre Cities. Work is currently in progress 😁

Today on my walk I noticed there has been a lot of work around the chessboard area and many manholes are marked RR, also a couple next to poles which have BAB or CD/UT for the part to the pole. Also this morning CatSurveys are doing Crow Hill. So there is progress.

Cycled along Grange Road in Ramsgate today, appears fibre and fibre equipment (joints, CBTs, yellow caution labels) is now on a few poles.  Things appear to be ramping up now it seems! :)

There's loads of roadworks scheduled for the area between Newington Rd, Whitehall Rd and Margate Rd. Also around Westcliff and Nethercourt, all do to with FTTP :-)

Looks like the first chunk of Ramsgate has now gone live with FTTP!

Would expect this to start expanding quite rapidly now.

Don't  worry it shows up on the think broadband map.
