Re: 21C WBC ADSL2+ Complete national Roll out.

Can I ask what cabinet you're on or are you EO?

Only reason I ask is BT are due to upgrade cabinet 15 to FTTC as part of their commercial deployment, cabinet 19 is being privately funded for FTTC and BT are also deploying some FTTP (due around Oct/Nov this year) as part of BDUK Hampshire.

I'm on PCP10, which is extremely close to the exchange. My D-side is about 3km, albeit very good quality copper, hence the 19kbps (with a tweaked target margin). VDSL2 isn't going to do anything good for my speeds.

I know people on PCP15 (and the neighbouring 16, which they're funding as a community). Those poor people have been struggling with lousy speeds and noisy lines since that development was built.

Hi Andy,

Many thanks for the update.

I think my line is currently approximately 4 to 4.3km long - distance from home to exchange, according to the "Broadband Exchange & Line Checker" at http://www.kitz.co.uk/adsl/broadbandchecker.php, is approximately 4km by road, or 3.15km in a direct line.

I think most (all?) households in our village (Bwlchygroes) are on EO lines of a similar length - so unless they install a new cabinet closer to the village, if it's close to the exchange itself, then it may not be of much help to us in terms of FTTC.

But it's great news that a new FTTC cabinet is possibly on the horizon, at least there's hope for the future. smile

Many thanks once again Andy.

Kind regards,

Adam.

Both my local BDUK and BT have told me that ADSL2+ is not an option for my exchange.

However, I think that is a red herring, as I have seen nothing to suggest that IPStream is being replaced by ADSL2+ - WBC covers more than just ADSL2+, so I expect LR-VDSL, FTTP, FTrN or some other technology to be used.

n.b., that link to the “National Service Migration Schedules” spreadsheet got put behind the registration wall (for CPs only). I still have a copy, though…

To be honest, that isn't such an interesting thing as it's migrations for exchanges already 21CN. It's just to move bulk numbers of people over from IP Stream to WBC as IP Stream gets retired.

Well, yes but not only that. For example, my exchange was IPstream-only until November, with migrations starting in December. The spreadsheet shows the service-availability date for recent upgrades and the plan out to April or so, ending with Martin Cross moving to WBC at the end of the month (migrations launched in May).

There's also a column showing the maximum line migration rate, which I imagine is fairly sensitive info.
