Nottinghamshire County Council along with Openreach have been working to improve broadband in this area. They have recently announced that engineering work has been completed and that customers can now place an order for a Fibre to the Premise (FTTP) service.
FTTP is the most up to date broadband solution currently available and will be capable of delivering speeds up to 1Gbps in some instances. When ordering an FTTP service, the customer journey is slightly different to ordering a traditional broadband service. PLEASE NOTE – these upgrades are not automatic, residents must take action to see an improvement to their service.
Step 1 Find the best deal. As FTTP is still a relatively new technology not all internet service providers (ISPs) currently offer a package, so you may need to consider changing providers. Take some time to explore your options, get quotes and choose the right deal for you. Take a look below at a table of ISPs that offer a FTTP service in Nottinghamshire as this is a good place to start.
Step 2 Survey. When placing an order, your chosen ISP will provide you with a date for an engineer to visit and carry out tests or even a survey should one be necessary. In some cases, additional works may be required to bring the fibre cable into your premises.
Step 3 Engineer Visit. Following the survey, an engineer connects the fibre cable to a small box (approx. 15cm x 10cm x 3 cm) which will need to be fixed to your outside wall of your property. The box will be installed at a height that can be worked on from ground level.
Step 4 Enjoy! Take advantage of the futureproof broadband with the best speeds currently available.
