why are BT so useless


[link to this post]
 
just checked and my FTTC has gone from December 2011 to march 2012 this is like the 4th time its changes i know people are going to say its a big job give it time,
But i dont see what the prob is according to OR PDF my exchange is taking orders so obvs one of the other cabs is active,
Plus my cab has been there since March this year it was powered on in July ready for the sep activation then it got moved to dec now its moved to march but the cab is still powered on so i ask why are they so friggin useless.

You're not alone. My exchange was active in 2009, other roads near me have FTTC cabs, but mine hasn't arrived. The date on the checker has changed 6 times, but was Dec 2011 recently - but last monday vanished.

This mornings database issue aside (!) - there is no info now from OR if I'm ever going to get FTTC.

crazy like i say the more frustrating thing is i know for a fact my cabs there and been turned on for 5 months lol and even worse the add salt to the wound a BT OR engineer told me last month when he fitted my talktalk line that it was defo going to be enabled this month lol.

He asked me why id chose talktalk as my provider and i said because i want FTTC thats unlimited without spending an arm and a leg and my mum got a vendetta against BT retail lol so talktalks the only other one,
He gos oh well you in luck they've had us in the darton exchange all this week making the final touches for the December activation there was some problems that stopped the september 1 and your cabs defo getting done thats when i thought to my self oh this dates actually looking good (seen as that was 3rd date change in past lol)

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but what you are experiencing is not localised. Our EARAY BT Exchange had a date of 31/03/2012 for FTTC, but now it's 31/12/2012 frown
Although from another perspective, I've gained substantially from recently switching from Orange Broadband/Phone rental & calls to same package with BT. It will be more expensive, but I have a negotiated first 12 months @ £25.10 for everything + plus charge for any calls made during weekdays, then the basic monthly charge increases to £34.10 for the 6 months remaining of the contract.
The main reason for doing this was because we frequently experienced almost stutteringly low download speeds during peak times = 1Meg; but now with BT I have not fallen below 13.1Meg 24-7 since 12/12/2011(my start date with new ISP). Also, while on Orange, BT OpenReach engineers visited me 3 times FOC, and found two external cabling probs & also fitted the latest master socket with built in filter. So proves the case that one man's meat can be another's poison wink

If you hate BT so much why don't you demand that Talk Talk install an FTTC service?


BT have doe a lot more to provide faster services in the UK than any other company and often they are forced to make investments at levels which do not generate a satisfactory return on capital.

I dont hate BT my mum dose i wanted to go with BT she said you want bt you move out (they messed up mega big time like 15 year ago and it really made her despise them)

i just think there useless in the fact something can be there half a year wasting power and still not use it i mean i understand these things take time but the fibres laid the cabs there powered on and other cabs on the exchange are taking orders so why not this one crazy

there are a number of reasons this can happen but sugges t this is a planning or a siting issue on yout cabinet -- which is why its rolls oever each Quarter and will continue to do so --

it may bw worth asking your local council to see if they have had a planning notigication for that cab and what it status is
