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...

I noticed my result changed on Thursday (31st) - changed from 30th June to 6th April. So I phoned up yesterday and placed my order. BT have confirmed, they'll be coming on the 20th to drag me out of this 2mbps hell.

I'm next door to you in Leyland. What a surprise when the new list of exchanges was released today and there's Leyland with a ESD Date of July 2011! Nothing showing yet on the checker but wasn't exactly expecting it so soon. Looking forward to leaving the dark ages (1mb & 63.5db) and starting to snort 30mb smile

If god had meant man to fly he would have given him more understanding bank managers!

3 Macs, 1 Netgear 834GT with DGTeam firmware, 1 Apple Timecapsule. Bye Bye AOHell, Hello O2, Bye Bye O2 once FTTC arrives on my exchange

Good news, the CAB has went live today and I my order placed for 4th May!!!!

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 35.4Mbps and upstream line speed of 8.6Mbps.
