cab not fttc on new house im moving to?


[link to this post]
 
hey all,

I have done some research into this but just want someone to check to mak sure

at my current address at sn1 3qt i have bt infinity at a steady 30 odd Mb connection, but at the address that i will be moving to Sn15 3Sr bt wholesale site says that i cant even get adsl2= let alone fttc is this correct?? also if BT was to make the Cabinet fttc what would be the most likely one as i cant see any around the area (am i blind) The person at the address at the moment was on sky but was getting about 250k download so we changed after sky said they cant do anything the person is now on 02, but still cant get about 1mb any reason for this? I have removed the bell wire and fitted a nte5 but still the poor speed, any advise / help

Thanks

Paul

http://www.samknows.com/broadband/broadband_checker pop in your details there (i just used your post code and number 5)

says you can get FTTC there and up to 5mb speeds on ADSL2 and full LLU services are there, so not sure what BT are saying you can not get it ?

should be your FTTC cab?


ops me stupid google maps got confused between the two post codes looks like there is no FTTC cab on the main road so no FTTC at that house (others mite be able to help you for more info)
on maps google search 51.44732,-2.106816 go into street view on the green pointer and look at the cerb with the 4 BT covers

FTTC status: Available in some areas

SN153SR , The following services are available in your location:

You would need to contact an ISP and give them the house number or phone number to do a full check.

SN153SR
CHIPPENHAM
FTTC, but not available yet
100%

Suggests you are going to get FTTC, just it has not been done yet. And Chippenham does have ADSL2+ but if the line is 50dB or more attenuation then that wont help much.

The BT Wholesale checker needs a telephone number to give the WBC speed estimates I think.

Road distance to the exchange taking shortest is about 3.5km, exchange is by the station
