Fibre RFS date changed


[link to this post]
 
I just had a email from a friend of mine, she noticed on Sam knows today that fibre RFS date have changed from the end of June tot he start of June, i lokked and she is right. but I seem very little movement, around at the moment and according to her BT still says at the end of the month.


do the RFS just mean the Exchange?

i know she is going to get fibre as soon as it is available as her ADSL is awful, so we got excited when she saw the date change, but not so much when Bt website said nope.

Yes, RFS just refers to the exchange. The exchange will show as live when only a couple of cabinets are live, then you will see more going live over the following months / year smile

Have you checked the BT order checker?
On all the Openreach/samknows sites it said that our exchange is RFS 30th June (similiar to yourselves I guess), but BT/sky/talktalk etc. all say that we can place an order and it's available now - we've been able to go through to order for about 3 weeks already. We haven't ordered with anyone yet as we're checking deals and trying to sort out amongst the magnitude of packages we've already got! Very tempted by Sky Fibre Pro though but not being able to order through their website is putting us off at the moment.

The work was done on installing the cabinets at the end of March/beginning of April. I haven't seen anyone working on the cabinets since (I can see our cabinet from my bedroom window est. 80/20 for me), so I don't know if anyone has placed orders and been activated yet.

Are you an existing Sky Broadband customer? If not you can phone up and order Fibre Pro. According to the Sky Help Forums Fibre Pro should be available to exisitng Sky BB subscribers around mid-June.

Same for me, was 31/6, today samknows changed to 1/6.

They haven't done any of the cabs though - they had all the permissions from the council, multiple roadworks planned over the last few months, but nothing happened.

Same for me too, was 30/6, but changed on samknows two days ago (30th may) to 1/6. My cab was done yesterday, hardly noticed a difference tbh, the markings were to the left but it was a straight replacement. Looks like the old cab but slightly bigger, no vents. No power to it yet.

Nothing showing as even coming soon on BT wholesale
