BT Infinty


[link to this post]
 
This might be a silly question so if it seems that way I apologise now.
My exchange is scheduled to be Infinity enabled on 13th September. (fingers crossed)
Does BT wait until it is live before starting to take orders or do they start to take orders sooner?
Thanks
Pat

No service provider can place an order on a line until its cabinet is ready for service , by which point the exchange will have been declared as accepting orders.
An exchange can being marked as accepting orders with just one cabinet ready for service,, so you may not be able to order even after the exchange is accepting orders.

You do realise it doesn't have to be BT Infinity? Most ISPs do FTTC, just like they do ADSLx.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 51.8/16.8Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

No, your exchange is scheduled to be fibre to the cabinet enabled. this is the problem that people think that infinity is the only way to get faster broadband.

You are right. My apologies I should have stated that it is due to be Fibre enabled.
Thanks for the replies.

If your exchange becomes enabled on September 13th it doesn't necessarily mean you can order FTTC broadband just yet. Oddly enough my exchange, Chandlers Ford, was enabled in September 2010. I work with two other people (amongst many others). We all live fairly close to each other and are on the same exchange.

One got fibre in Dec 2010, I got it in Feb 2011 and the third person is still unable to even order it 3 years later.

Is that because his cabinet is not enabled?
