Nice one, congrats.  I'm waiting my connection eagerly now - end of April for outside and beginning of May for inside.  Good luck with the install, hope all goes well for you.

When I ordered mine Zen initially told me 1 stage install, but the information on the Openreach checker (https://www.broadbandchecker.btwholesale.com/#/ADSL/AddressHome) told a different story.  This line usually indicates 2 stage at least: "Our records show the following FTTP network service information for these premises:-Single Dwelling Unit Residential UG Pre built to curtilage Hard.".  It's going to turn out to be a 3 stage install - civils work then outside then inside...

There's certainly some merit for people who are pole fed, so much simpler.

I guess things are easier if pole fed, though a lot more unsightly IMHO for the street in general.  At the end of my road there is a street of terraced houses that are all pole fed, the streets just look a bit of a mess.  Though the CBTs strapped to the front of buildings look pretty gash, too.  Workmanship on the ones round here is pretty poor, particularly in getting the cables into capping and up to the CBT at high level.

I didn't see any indication that the OP was pole fed.

Easy life then.  We can compare notes once hooked up.  Who've you signed up with and what package?

I've gone with Zen on the 900/115 package.  I particularly wanted the high upload to VPN to my office which has an 80/80 connection.

I'm currently with EE on VDSL and I was a bit paranoid that a BT group company might result in something happening to my copper service / phone line in the way of a migration or something.  I wanted that left well alone until I'm happy the FTTP is robust.  Probably unfounded but all the providers under BT seemed to want to know my phone number!
