How to check for BT FTTP availability?
There is some confusion surrounding the FTTP product when checking for availability. Where Fibre to the Premises is concerned, two products often appear on results. The first is FTTP On Demand which cannot be ordered as of writing this article. If your results show FTTP (without On Demand), the product is available to order.
The rollout of FTTP remains limited in the UK but we are seeing availability increased month on month.
What benefits are included?
The FTTP product is offered with Premium benefits including the BT Sport app (view on a phone or tablet only), BT Device Protection for security, BT TechHeads IT Support, Guest WiFI access and access to BT WiFI Hotspots.
If required, our team is able to discuss requirements for BT Cloud Voice which makes a great companion to fibre broadband services. The typical customer for Cloud Voice services is normally five users plus but we are able to provide an individual licence which includes features and unlimited calling minutes to UK landlines and mobile.
If you require a business mobile, a further £5 discount against any new mobile tariff is applied - discount applied as an FTTP customer. This offer is for direct BT Business and not Wholesale.
What FTTP speeds should I expect?
The estimated speeds will be around the 330Mbp/s download speed. As with any Broadband network provider, speeds could be variable but generally end to end fibre services offer stable speeds and connectivity.
What if FTTP is unavailable, what are my other options?
Fibre to the Premises is typically rolled out in locations that do not support FTTC (Fibre to the Cabinet). If FTTP shows as unavailable, there is a good chance either FTTC or Copper infrastructure may serve your area. If your business is one of many with very poor connection speeds, the only other option could be an Ethernet leased line or EFM (Ethernet First Mile).
BTNet Ethernet services provide 1Gbp/s or 100Mbp/s symmetrical dedicated fibre connectivity. One point to note is that Ethernet begins at around £250 per month vs the £80 per month for FTTP. There are good reasons for the increased costs such as an improved SLA (Service Level Agreement), symmetrical speeds (the same bandwidth up/down).
In the process of research, you may have read information on a product called FTTP on Demand. On Demand is an Open Reach product which has not yet been released to providers including BT Business & Retail.
Does FTTP use the BT Smart Hub?
Can I get BT FTTP for our new build?
An FTTP installation is ideal for new build premises depending on availability. If you are considering services for a new business, let us know as we’ll be able to add products from the BT portfolio as required including Cloud Voice and BT Mobile.
What other products can I add to my FTTP order?
BT Mobile - With the acquisition of EE (Everything Everywhere) by BT, the latest handsets are now available (including iPhone and Android) together with SIM only deals.
BT PSTN Lines - With broadband, business phone lines add a small bonus to the overall sale value.
BT Data Services - BTNet Ethernet leased lines are becoming popular with the best price points yet for 10Gbps, 1Gbps and 100Mbps.
