Most likely.

Check https://one.network/ for local roadworks (best registering for free to check months in to the future) or openreach.com to see if your address is in scope.

If it's a newer build (under 25-30 years old) then it should hopefully be a very straight forward deployment.

Roughly what area? It may be on the official list. Many new builds get done even if the area isn't in plans.

That's the thing been checking one.network on a regular basis nothing on there apart from duct unblocking for next week on a older part of the estate so was surprised to see the contractors pulling in draw rope. It is a new estate built in 2006 not far from Northampton. Can't find anything about fibre on the superfast Northamptonshire website but the BT fibre first website says we are starting to build in your Area. BT availability checker says FTTP not available and not a Fibre first exchange. Hopefully it is on its way

Could be part of the retro new build work.
It's quick and easy to deploy and will likely go live before the Fibre First work in Northampton.

My development was done under this work despite there being no FTTP rollout on my patch.
They have covered the vast majority of new builds around me now.

No surprise there's nothing on one.network as the ducts are new and should be clear, there shouldn't be any need for roadworks permits.

Mapgroup are 1 of the subcontractors OpenReach are using for the FTTP build so looks like it's coming to you.  :)

Next Xmas  :hmm:
Our village work started in the first Lockdown  in May, some months later It's in 'Testing' and should imagine it's going to be Next year before I can order.

So do not expect anything to happen soon as there is many many man hours to get not just your street but a whole wider area lit up when it goes live..

What area are you ?.

Understand that it won't happen overnight and it can be smooth sailing or a rough road. I am in Kettering Northamptonshire

   I received a letter from B.T. today telling me that I could order FTTP from them now, for less than 30 p/m. Am not sure if that includes a PSTN line or not. But I am with Sky FTTC for the next year, and am paying a lower price than that, for a speed that is more than enough for my needs at this time. Hopefully other people in my road will be interested in the B.T. offer, and this may help the reliability of my line!

That could be a postive spin on it  more people that take up fttp less cross talk will effect vdsl lines resulting in a higher speed think I will still take fttp as and when

The only PON's in scope at this minute for Kettering, are new-sites and retro new sites. So as j0hn mentions, you will fall under the RNS programme if work is being carried out regarding FTTP ??

Which means it "should be" a shorter wait and very unlikely to be anywhere near as long as Xmas 2021 as mooted above.

The new build and retro new site work is so much quicker to deploy compared to the general rollout provided no major issues crop up.

Happy New year guys well thought FTTP was coming but looks like our postcode not included. Near yet so far if they just gone that extra 5 meter. Looks like I will be re-contracting my second line for a further 12 months
