How do you know which cabinet you are connected to


[link to this post]
 
My exchange has a June live date for FTTC and I can see the new fibre cabinets being installed. How do I find out which is the local phone cabinet I connect to? If I know this I might be able to work out my chances of getting FTTC near the live date for the exchange. My post code is WF9 4BE

Cabinet is P16 and should see speeds increase by 2.65 times

Have you checked your phone number?

Thanks. I'm with SKY currently so my phone number doesn't show on the BT checker

The list is showing the cabinet as deployed.

Sky launched their fibre service in April, so they should be able to give better feedback then.

What does the "deployed" status mean? It is physically there. Is it possible that I will be able to get FTTC before the exchange estimated date of June 2012?

It just means it is scheduled. It's phase 8a, but I have no idea when that is.

The 1 June date for Hemsworth could happen, but not necessarily all cabinets. There's no chance of it being before the exchange, but occasionally exchanges do go live before the date.

Cabinet 5, speed times 5.82, or cabinet 17, speed times 10.41. Phase 8a, FTTC.

I live on a new housing estate at the end of WF9 4BE. When I check on the BT site for a house number in original street it is showing as the cabinet being upgraded by end of June but when I put my house number in there is no mention of an FTTC date. There is a small phone line cabinet near the start of my part of the street with the number 15 on it. Is this one in the plans for FTTC?

Shows as 100% on PCP 16.

Having said that there isnt a PCP15 on the spreadsheet!
