SLRN Cabinet 8


[link to this post]
 
I'm located about 3 km as the crow flies from the Ranmoor exchange. The April 2011 BT database showed me connected via PCP SLRN 8 which is located less than 1 km from the exchange. This cabinet serves it's local area and then a ribbon along the main road as well as almost all our 1960's built estate. I guess this rules out FTTC.
I've now realised looking at the Dec 2012 BT database that the PCP 8 cabinet has disappeared entirely from the listing. When I enquired of Digital Region, I was told that their database indicated a direct exchange line.
Does anyone know what is indicated when a PCP disappears from the database but is still there physically ?

Bad news and bad news frown.

The December one is in two halves. Either you were looking in Part 1, or you were looking in Part 2 and didn't realise that you now have to remove the space.

Two entries totalling 86% of the postcode's lines are exchange only. One entry is cab 8, serving 8%, but it isn't scheduled.

Thanks for that.
Still not sure how to locate the correct bit of the database, but it doesn't matter anyway.
The direct exchange line perhaps explains why I get a ADSL2+ sync of 8 Mb/s on a line that must be at least 3.5 km long.
It's fast enough for my needs at present and many would give their eye teeth for such speeds I know.
It would have been nice to know that faster speeds were available.

In Cornwall there is a unamed plan by BT for those with Exchange only lines, have to wait and see what it is, people have also said its possible to put a cabinet outside the exchange and feed the Exchange only lines to it, but thats just a possiblity which we dont know will happen.

Is a case of waiting and seeing what BT decide to do for those with Exchange only lines.
