Record breaking 'Black Friday' sales
« on: December 06, 2021, 08:43:10 AM »

.... of FTTP orders, that is. Assisted with the discounted pricing deals, put in place with the CP's.

Up 67% on last year, and orders have tripled in the past two years.

Fully aware a few folk don't even have a proposed date yet, myself being one of them, but it's good news if your in this industry or a purchaser of the product.

I was one of those who ordered FTTP as part of the BT deal with BT itself. Install due 15/12/21.  ;D

I'd imagine the experience of working from home for some people made them much more keen to upgrade to something better, for the right price.

Me too. I expect to be on 40Mbps or thereabouts for the foreseeable.

God, 40 Mbps downstream, can only dream. 16 my current downstream IP rate.  ;) Yes, I know, I know.

Id rather not have a proposed date at all than OR being pressurised to keep dates already promised but which turn out to be infeasible later on due to estimates being off or factors beyond their control. Especially given that were in the grip of a pandemic.

A date means you in their plans, hence it better than not having one.
