Change to roll-out plan?


[link to this post]
 
Up 'till now the OpenReach roll-out has shown my exchange - Brackley - with an SAUID of SMBB which is Banbury. It's been assumed that means our exchange is not going to be upgraded and that perhaps long term would even be closed. Now it's showing Brackley with an SAUID of SMBY. Do you think BTor have made a mistake or finally realised they'd got it wrong before?

Looking here you can see that the exchange is earmarked for FTTC for March 2012. This is often the exchange ready date and not the ready date of all cabinets to be upgraded to FTTC.

The best thing to do it check your telephone number using the BT Wholesale availability checker wink

The SAUID just means which actual exchange the Fibre cabling to the cabinets on your exchange are being fed from (e.g. the head-end).

So, it just means that cabinets on your exchange are being upgraded, but that the fibre cable is not fed from your local exchange (which makes no difference).

For example our exchange, Saddleworth, is FTTC enabled (and some cabs live etc) but the FTTC is fed from the Oldham exchange.

Well you understood more of my post than the first responder did, I'll give you that.

What I'm wondering is why has the SAUID changed? Have the documents been incorrect for the last six months or is this a mistake? Have other SAUIDs been 'fixed'? Could it be that no-one is being supplied from 'out of town' and it was all a documentation error?

I think the error is probably in this document. When my cab was installed just before Christmas they dug a trench all the way out to the main road heading away from the exchange. The new cabinet is closer to the exchange than the old one so must already be within a couple of metres of existing ducting. In effect the new trench extended the existing ducting over a hundred metres further away from the exchange.

There were a couple of months where the Openreach website listed the SAUID as the serving exchange in the FTTC coming soon documents, so yes, we think this was by mistake. What you are saying is the same thing, so I would not worry about it - it's the same for every exchange as they have now updated the list,

Oh I'm not worried about it - was just curious. In my case though I think this document must be the mistake.

The two cabinets are at the roundabout bottom right, either side of the bottom exit. The new trench was dug to the roundabout top left then around the 'headland'. Still rather odd but it didn't extend back toward town so I'm guessing it met a fibre that crosses the A422.
