BT Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) Trials Delayed

Published on 25/05/2011

BT has been forced to delay the rollout of its fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) technology, after approximately twenty-five percent of its trials experienced significant delays in getting fibre-optic cabling into customers' homes.

BT’s programme director Johnny McQuoid stated that some of the trials were taking twice as long as anticipated due problems with the ducting which carries the fibre-optic cable.  Many of the ducts are blocked and the blockages need to be cleared.  This can prove to be very time-consuming, difficult and costly tying up two engineers for up to two days at a time when it should take less than a day to install the service.

BT is hoping to get its "mixed economy exchange" which includes fibre-to-the-cabinet, rolled out to two-thirds of households and businesses in the UK by 2015.  However, the FTTP trials are lagging way behind.
