Fibre on Demand provides full-fibre broadband, as a bespoke installation by Openreach to your premises. It is available across the UK – even in areas that cannot reliably get FTTC.

Fibre on Demand differs from standard Cerberus FTTP in a number of important ways. Because the fibre is delivered to your premises as a custom build, a substantial installation charge will apply. These Installation charges are determined following an onsite site survey at your premises.

The lead time for installation is dependent on the amount of work needed to get the fibre to your location. This is based on the distance to the nearest NGA aggregation node but could vary according to the local network infrastructure - or the local geography.

After the standard 12 or 24 month contract, Fibre on Demand can be re-graded to a regular Cerberus FTTP service. These services typically have lower pricing and a wider range of bandwidth options than the FoD variant of FTTP.

Linked Orders - Work with neighbours to share installation costs

A unique feature of Cerberus Fibre on Demand is the option to share the installation costs with neighbours also wanting to upgrade to ultrafast broadband.

As long as the neighbouring premises are all reasonably close to each other, much of the new fibre infrastructure installed by Openreach can be used to serve a cluster of premises without adding significantly to the overall costs.

For linked FoD orders, Openreach survey all interested premises and provides a single cost to deliver fibre to all of them. For a few premises, the total cost will often be only marginally more than delivering service to a single address.

This total installation charge is then split between all participating customers, resulting in a much lower build charge per customer. Working with neighbours in this way means you can make ultrafast fibre broadband cost-effective almost anywhere in the UK.

Cerberus provides all the assistance and order management tools needed to facilitate Linked Fibre on Demand orders and by combining group orders with the various government broadband grant schemes currently available, it can sometimes even be possible to get the service installed for free!
