FTTC Buckley Exchange WNBUC


[link to this post]
 
My Exchange is shown as going to go live for FTTC on 30/9/11, but checked everywhere, my postcode (CH7 3QG) says I can get it but my number says NO, Im devastated, is there anyway of checking what cabinet Im on to see if it is ever going to be upgraded
Many thanks
Dan

Sorry, I don't know where you have seen something saying your postcode can get it, but the April Openreach schedule shows it as Cabinet 17 and not scheduled frown.

The BTW checker for CH7 3QG reports:
" 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 between 9.6 to 12.6 Mbps and upstream line speed between 4.1 to 5 Mbps. "

That doesn't mean to say it is scheduled to have the cabinet updated. The April spreadsheet doesn't say it won't be done, which it could do, just doesn't say it is planned yet. It reckons a 4.3 times speed increase over the norm for that postcode.

There may be a later document, but no-one has turned up with it yet. I would guess it is issued at best quarterly.

Living not far away and knowing your area I find your speed somewhat low. You are quite close to the Buckley exchange and their 9.6 to 12.6 Mbps estimate based on 4.3 time your current expected speed puzzles me.

What distance does the speed checker say?

Cheers!

Hi Clive
I only currently get about 5mb, the exchange has just been upgraded to ADSL+2 so it has gone up from about 3.8 to about 5mb.
Samknows is showing I live this far away
, CH73QG
Exchange: Buckley (1150m away)
I was really hoping for the cab to be done, we have got openreach guyz all over the place at the moment, but there just pulling the cables thru, Ive had a chat to a few of them and they say your better off getting a local guy at the exchange, he may know, if its being done, the only cabinet I can find is up at the lights by Ewloe place, if that cab feeds our estate the Openreach Guy said he is sure thats being done as there is a joint been left in the cable
Thanks for the replies Guyz
Best regards
Dan

Cabinets have the number on. Several on that exchange are being done, but it seems not no.17, which covers your postcode. Go check the number and if it is 17 see if there is activity near it. If it isn't, then go hunting.

Right, you are right it is cabinet 17, that serves us, the thing is, the cable that is being run to feed our exchange is running past this cabinet within 2 feet, the open reach guy was sure today that they had left a joint by it, so hopefully they may do it

The spreadsheet referred to here: http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/fibre/f/3999911-ver... (now removed, but not before I downloaded it) has your postcode listed. And has you on Cabinet P17.

I'm not sure what is going on.

I'm on the Hawarden exchange and currently SP Power Systems are connecting 230v to the cabs in Ewloe at Carlines Park. In Mancot, some FTTC cabs have yet to be fitted, I saw one today that had the base in. Yet SamKnows says that for Hawarden, FTTC is Available in some areas.

For 1150m I would have expected better than 3.8 Mb and 5 Mb on ADSL2+

I am at 1865m and pre ADSL2+ got around 4.5 to 5.5 Mb depending..... With my DrayTek holding synch for months on end. Now on ADSL2+ and have yet to get an ADSL2+ synch and have had anything up to 14 synchs per day. Current speed 5.0 Mb. Now, our local cable is 1950/1960's aluminium which is known bad news for ADSL. You should be on copper, so something not quite right there. When FTTC is available for me, my cab is about 500 metres away, not too sure how the aluminium will affect speeds then.

Perhaps you should show your line stats and someone with more knowledge comment on your current speed etc.

Good Luck!

Cheers!
