General FTTC Enquiry/s


[link to this post]
 
Hi,
I have noticed today my exchange is on the new rollout list,
Is there a set amount of time before the BT Checker updates so i can tell 1. which cab i am on?? (3 possibilities from what i can tell) 2. If my cab will be enabled?? 3. A reliable speed estimate and activation date??

My exchange is YEOVIL if that helps

Thanks

There was list of Postcodes to Cabs around a while back.. I'm sure one of the regulars that has a copy will offer to look it up and tell you which cab you are (probably) connected to.

I hope there will be somebody with a new list of a ISP that can tell me, however the exchange was only put on the list today.

EDIT:
I also have a pole right outside my front door so i'm not sure weather thats a contributing factor or means i am not directly served by a cabinet.

We need the post code before we can establish the cabinet(s) serving it.

My copy of the spreadsheet doesn't have this postcode, or indeed anything beginning BA21.

But it is over 6 months out of date. It isn't likely to have areas that have *just* been added onto BT's rololout plans.

They haven't added Yeovil to the current PCP to Postcode list, at a guess because it's a newly added exchange to the rollout plans.

As WWombat says, sorry. Mine will be the same as his, April. There is at least one poster with bang up-to-date info though, so maybe he will pick up on it.

It's possible some of the cabinets near you are Virgin Media. BT cabinets have a 2/3/or occasionally 4-digit number. VM as far as I know always much longer than that. I've got a few pics here. 1000 yards wouldn't be great for FTTC.

I know for a fact they are all BT cabs as they have the 2 digit numbers and VM won't come anywhere near us try say its to expensive.
