Fibre on Demand may not be for everyone and the price will put all but the most seriously interested people off, but as an option for those who work from home or small businesses looking for something more reliable and faster than existing Fibre to the Cabinet services it provides a way to be at the cutting edge.
We have known the prices of FTTP on Demand for a few weeks now, which is in the order of £700 to £1500 to connect, and the monthly connection is a 330 Mbps based service that has a minimum price of £38+VAT per month. The thing that no one knew until now was where it will be available, and that question has been answered. The list of initial locations in the UK where Fibre on Demand will be available (as well as being in the exchange area your street cabinet needs to be FTTC enabled) and will expand in due course is below:
Basingstoke, Blackfriars, Bonvilston, Bristol South, Cardiff, Culverhouse, Edinburgh Waverley, Garston, High Wycombe, Holmer Green, Hook, Keynsham, Manchester Central, Penn (Buckinghamshire), Peterston Super-Ely, Princes Risborough, Redruth, Roath, St Agnes, Turgis Green Chineham, Watford, Leamington Spa, Kenilworth, Southam, Nottingham Longbox, Geding, Ramsbottom, Tottington, Irlan, Oldham, Saddleworth, Tunbridge Wells, Paddock Wood, Tonbridge, Malone (Belfast), Brighton Hove, Brighton Withdeam, Maidenhead, Littlewick Green, Bromsgrove, Droitwich, Hillside (Hereford & Worcester), Falmouth, PenrynList of initial Fibre on Demand locations
While we know some people are waiting to part with their cash, remember that the service providers have only just learnt about the locations too and may be wanting to connect a few trial users of their own to verify that they understand the full ordering system.
