His FTTP (the person in that thread) was rolled out in 2017 or even earlier.
Edit: 2018 or earlier.
This example was 2017

There's a very large number of properties who show only 330 available that aren't connected to ECI hardware.
Usually it's just a database error. The same type of database error that's showing 1000Mb to some on ECI hardware.
Sometimes it's a backhaul/cablelink issue restricting speeds.

All OpenReach FTTP deployed in the last couple years will be on Huawei or Nokia OLT's (or even ADTRAN).

The only people who are unlucky enough to sign up to FTTP and end up stuck on ECI hardware are those on older FTTP rollouts.

Nobody who's waiting on an FTTP rollout should be worried about ECI limitations, fortunately.

Thanks John, that's good to know. Hopefully one day it will be rolled out to our estate  :fingers:

Here's a funny thing,  TT have told my brother he's going to receive 75 compensation for his delayed install. The only reason it was delayed was because my brother wanted it installed in a certain way that the first sub contractor wouldn't do.

He's not claimed for this, not complained or anything, it's just come out of blue.

As we've been a tad busy I only just got round to looking to full fibre and now find BT are now supplying Digital Voice which was not available leader here before.

Well I've bitten the bullet and signed up for BT Full Fibre with Digital Voice. Installation should be 15th December in the afternoon. It is quite a good deal with their Black Friday offerings, I've only gone for the 100 package which is a max of 150mb down and 30mb up which is more than enough for us. The deal gives me 3 months free plus 2 digital voice handsets. Now to wait and hope it all goes OK.

I've been getting some communications from TalkTalk asking me to stay with them and so I decided to call and tell them exactly why I'm moving on. I spoke to a very nice young lady and explained that I'm moving not through choice but because they wont supply the service I need. She was very apologetic (as expected) but obviously could not supply the FTTP with a digital phone connection so there was no way of staying, I also suggested they are getting a bit behind the times as they do not have IPV6 as well. She promised to pas my comments on but I doubt it will make much difference, however phasing out copper in a few years will likely force their hand.

I don't need IPV6 as I have a software solution installed to access IPV6 sites, but it would be a nice to have.

I really don't get why digital voice was so important.  My plan is to get FTTP, migrate landline number to AAISP VoIP, job done.

VOIP was important but with the offer from BT for 3 free month and Digital Voice with two free handsets it seemed like a good choice as I was going to have to move anyway. TT would not install FTTP and leave FTTC so I could move the phone later. The implication with BT was if I took Digital Voice later it would be with a new number.

Not yet, I had not had to access any IPV6 addresses for a while and had not noticed an update in the software last month has raised a bug which I have reported. So when it gets fixed I will try again.
