EO lines


[link to this post]
 
My exchange is green for infinity but not my street. One of the BT agents I spoke to mentioned there is no record of a cabinet number for my property but didn't know if that signifies an EO line. I suspect I may be connected directly to the exchange (about 500m away) but I'm struggling to find anyone at BT who can answer that question. Any suggestions?

If I do have an EO line then I would look to move house but obviously I would prefer not to do this based on misinformation.

EO lines for reference purposes

So does the Wholesale Checker give a cab number for your telephone number?

Look for :
BT BROADBAND AVAILABILITY CHECKER
Telephone Number 01xxxxxxxxx on Exchange xxxxx is served by Cabinet xx

at the top

You're almost certainly exchange only. What's your postcode Sir?

You are exchange only, sorry.

CLCOV COVENT GARDEN WC2H9QP {CLCOV}{M_A} 1 100%

CLCOV = exchange code for Covent Garden, M_A indicates you're exchange only, on MDF 'A", the number 1 is 1 for exchange only, 0 for on a cabinet, and the 100% is the proportion of properties in that postcode that are exchange only.

EDIT: More exactly it's the % of properties in that postcode covered by this entry.

Again, apologies.

Check the post code of any proposed new location before committing - and preferably check using the existing phone number there, as long as it isn't Sky or TalkTalk. Some postcode areas can be part cabinet and part EO.
