BT Wholesale Checker - WBC FTTC @32mb yet no FTTC???


[link to this post]
 
Hi all

Was just checking to see if there was any progress / news / updates / miracles!!! regarding one of our clients exchanges and faster bt broadband...

putting a few postcodes in, got this reply on the BT Wholesale checker

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial check on your postcode indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 2Mbps.

Our check also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 4Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 3Mbps and 7Mbps.

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed between 31.9 to 32.6 Mbps and upstream line speed between 7.5 to 7.8 Mbps.

The actual stable line speed supportable will be determined during the first 10 days of use. This speed may change over time, to ensure line stability is maintained.

If you decide to place an order, a further test will be performed to confirm if your line is suitable for the service you wish to purchase.

Thank you for your interest.


:::::::::::

As most of the broadband connections are less than 3-5mb in the village, was wondering if the exchange could have been updated and it is not reflecting anything OR is this a big fail on BT's end???

The local exchange is:

For Postcode CM3 2EH

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial check on your postcode indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 2Mbps.

Our check also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 7.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 6.5Mbps and 8Mbps.

The actual stable line speed supportable will be determined during the first 10 days of use. This speed may change over time, to ensure line stability is maintained.

If you decide to place an order, a further test will be performed to confirm if your line is suitable for the service you wish to purchase.

Thank you for your interest.

Please note that postcode and address check results are indicative only. Most accurate results can be obtained from a telephone number check.

So from that I guess you are saying its a fail on BT's api then?

Tried a few other clients connections and they range from 3mb to 36mb!!! All on that exchange!

Read somewhere that even though the exchange has no indication of being enabled for FTTx services that it dont mean the line cannot get it, true or just more BT play on words?

I think you need the Telephone no check to work to be able to order.

Your clients should also check their local cabinets to see if FTTC ones have been installed close to the existing ones.

Cheers for the input

Have all the #'s but was just puzzled as to why some say 30mb with number and postcode and some say 3mb up to 6mb.

Most of the cabs are just root ground cabs, the closest green cab is at least 500m away from some of the postcodes, some are in the high street, again not many green cabs, have looked all around most of the ones that can be seen and can see no additional equip on show, so guessing its all an error.

Assume FTTC would not show up anywhere else, other than DP to exchange so looks like its go slow for another 10 years smile

An oddity with the BT Wholesale checker is it only gives you enablement dates when you enter a phone number.
Using the postcode checker always responds implying FTTC is already available "your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband....." provided the exchange has an enablement date.
If you type a number in it adds a date, something like "Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 30th September 2011" to the result.
Using the address checker gives the same result as the number checker.

If you give us a real postcode from the ones you are interested in, we can check the cabinet scheduling as of April, and maybe as of June.
