We had a new one put into Telehouse East last month. Fortunately we
already had some old disused BT fibre into the rack but needed a new
copper line for the management broadband. BT told us they couldn't
order the cabling run and we had to order it direct from Telehouse (spec
provided for a 25m run of BT provided phone cable from the DP inside the
same room). What was a bit surprising is that TH charged us more than
twice their standard cross connect install charge plus the usual annual
rental fee, despite not having to supply or terminate the cable
themselves. I checked with our account manager but apparently this is
their standard pricing for running BT supplied cables.
