NGA2007/17 FTTP on Demand Refreshed proposition

30/10/2017    For Action

This briefing is for NGA Communications Providers.

This briefing advises on the launch of a new pricing mechanism for GEA-FTTP on Demand that will become available for CPs on 1 February 2018. The current cost per metre approach will be replaced by a more accurate survey-based 'Term on application' quote for the set-up charge.

GEA-FTTP on Demand new pricing

The new proposal operates on the following basis:

  • The new pricing operates on 12 months minimum term. This has been reduced from 36 months.
  • In addition to the existing 330/30 Mbps, 500/165 Mbps and 1000/220 Mbps variants, customers can now order two more variants: 160/30 Mbps and 330/50 Mbps.
  • Reduced connections and rentals, which will be charged in line with standard FTTP prices.
  • Withdrawal of the distance-based charging, replaced by a FTTP on Demand build charge, established through a planning/survey phase.
  • Quotes are subject to survey. We will provide an initial, non-binding estimate of the level of build costs. Upon confirmation by the communications provider, we will proceed with the planning phase, and establish a final firm price which is valid for a period of 30 days. At this stage, if the communications provider does not want to proceed then it is liable to pay the survey and design fee of £245.14.
  • Deductions will be made on the build charge for:
  •     -    Each FTTP on Demand order in the PON build

        -    Any additional premise passed by the PON build

  • Multiple FTTP on Demand orders in a geographic cluster can be processed simultaneously:
  •     -    The build charge deduction per PON will apply for each FTTP on Demand order

        -    Provides an opportunity for the build charge to be shared by multiple end customers

The new pricing will apply to orders purchased from the 1 February 2018. Existing customers will continue to pay the old tariff until they complete their minimum period of service.
