Despite my exchange (Chorley, Lancs - LCCHO) being originally scheduled for 31st March I've never had any mention of FTTC (or a date!) when using any phone line checker, including the BT Wholesale one. If I searched using postcode it strangely said FTTC was available!
Anyway on checking (phone number) this morning it says:
Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 1st July 2011. 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 of 30Mbps and upstream line speed of 7.2Mbps.
Nice of it to contradict itself!
The cabinet has been fitted, power done (or at least the road was dug, then filled in a week later) etc. Just haven't had time to walk up to it and "listen" to see if it's humming.
Would love you know when I should get my MAC from O2 - due to the length of my line currently I get ~4mbps on a good day with the wind behind me! Therefore want to sign up the second it's available. If anyone cares by the way Aquiss is my likely destination...
