FTTP Connection ETA

Dialled in

Hi all!

So had VM and Sub Contractors out this morning running Fibre cables in my street and Northampton is one of the county's due for FTTP rollout this year still (Doubt that).

Anyone know how long it takes from cables being ran to me being able to switch / order an FTTP connection? Currently on the Mega Volt bundle with 1Gig internet and Hub 5 but super excited for the Hub5x with 10G ethernet and a decent FTTP connection.

Thanks

Virgin were out this week connecting up the cables and running the Fibre. I've spoke to VM who said it should be going live in the "coming months".


Don’t get too excited. I’m in another of the older HFC areas built by County Cable/Telecential (as Northampton was). Our FTTP cabinets were installed this time last year. Fibres put in & the service nodes are happily humming away. Nobody is connected to it yet.

Three months is your answer then 👍

They did my street recently but are still blitzing the surrounding areas with new cabinets and have not yet arranged for the National Grid hookup so a few months to go yet.
