Many areas have gone live for FTTC, including mine, both myself and my mother have an FTTC connection and get the full 40 meg which we're very pleased with.
However I notice a lot of areas listed as getting FTTP in the spreadsheet that was kicking around here a while back have ended up with FTTC, and the areas that have had firbre laid along the pavement last summer still show as having no form of fibre available atall via the BT Wholesale availability checker.
My old flat was pole fed and has had a tell tale black / yellow fibre sticking out of the top of the pole for over six months now and I saw OR laying the fibre in the conduit and aggregators in the manholes as I say, last summer, but none of these areas show as live.
1. Areas that are / were scheduled to have FTTP but are fed by cabs that have been FTTC enabled - will they still get FTTP?
2. Does it usually take so long to get the FTTP up and working?
I'm not actually bothered, I've got FTTC now and my attainable rate is over 80 meg so speeds are well above anything I could possibly need, just interested
