Are Eclipse still able to provide their home packages over LLU ADSL2+ where there is no 21CN? If so are they going to keep this arrangement for the forseeable future? We have been with them for over five years and have been on LLU since it first appeared in our exchange (Ilfracombe) in 2008. I know there are other Eclipse customers with lines that are set up with this configuration. The Eclipse website doesn't seem to mention this anywhere.
Eclipse confirmed to me by e-mail on the 18th August that:
This is occurring as part of an infrastructure change and as such we will no longer have any connections on Tiscali LLU circuitry.
My exchange hasn't been 21CN'd yet and there is no date planned for it. Eclipse claim that it should be done by the end of March 2012 - unfortunately I just have to wait to see how accurate that is!
In the mean time, Eclipse will be reducing the monthly fee and supplying me ADSL Max Premium. I would much rather have ADSL2+, though.
I still have issues with the way that this was communicated to me by Eclipse.
