I think BT has pointed the finger at the local electricty supply companies not being able to keep up with all the cabinet power hook ups.

I had to get EDF in last year as my junction box started dripping tar out of it (as they used that as an insulator in the 1950s) and it took 8 weeks for them to come and sort it.

Even then they had to send an outsourced company to fix it as they were too busy to come and do it in the end, it made one hell of a mess which they refuse to clean up or pay for it to be cleaned.

Yep Ive been waiting for my cab to be ready from 31/08/10 and still no sign of it even being put there. BT told me the delay was down to planning but I suspect it is a power thing.
The date will no doubt change to something like 30/06/11

PS you will have a long wait if its 31 June 2011 smile

Thing is, my cab is happy buzzing away, so it must have power going to it.

I'd guess that an exchange wont be available to take orders until a given number/percentage of cabinets are active and ready for service.
But then the cabinets are just part of it.

Yep my go live date for Reading central went from 31-dec to 31-mar and now BT's own infintity site states that my area isn't due to get FTTC at all!

Samknows states 1st March for FTTC. (Presume it's out of date?)
BT Wholesale states 31-Sep for FTTC!

I was thinking of going back to BT for FTTC. But this constant moving of the goalposts doesn't help.

Update:

Just checked, via BT's Infinity site, the Infinity Roll out map. (That big banner at the top of their page.) states that:
"Great News! These Exchanges are ready for BT Infinity:.....Reading Central.."
[censored]? BT it's time your left hand started knowing what your right hand was doing. What part of your site is giving the correct info??

So you should be on a cabinet then. I was wondering if you were close enough to be connected direct to the exchange, which would have explained it.
