Update 15 September 2015:
The date has been pushed back once again - expected availability date is now 31 March 2017, yes, 2017 !!! That's 4 years after the originally quoted date - what's going on?
"FTTC is currently not available on this cabinet due to following reasons:- Cabinet to be enabled between Apr-16 and Mar-17. Date to be confirmed once the survey is complete.."
This is no longer a joke. The new cabinet has been in position for over a year, and apparently awaits a connection under the roadway to the old cabinet.
My address on the AUGHTON GREEN exchange is served by Cabinet 6.
In May 2013, the expected availability of superfast broadband at my cabinet was 30 September 2013
By 30 September 2013, the expected availability was 31 May 2014
By May 2014, the expected availability was 30 September 2014
Today, 30 September 2014, the expected availability is showing as 30 September 2015.
I'd like to think this is a simple clerical mistake, but history does sometimes make you think......
