Fibre availability after Exchange Enablement


[link to this post]
 
My exchange has very recently been fibre enabled, but it is still unfortunately unavailable to me. I've seen references to the "December Spreadsheet" which details which cabinets are going to be enabled.

Would anyone with access to the spreadsheet be kind enough to check the spreadsheet for me?

My postcode is KT13 0UU - Exchange is LSWEY.

What I find strange is that on our estate, there aren't actually any normal green cabinets, as there are dotted around the rest of town.

KT13 0UU - Weybridge
Not looking good I'm afaid. All the lines on that postcode are served by cabinet 65, as are KT13 0RW, KT13 0UY and KT13 0UX. KT13 0RU has 2% on it.

None of those are scheduled in the December data frown. There is an April update, but only ISPs have that.

I am in the same boat as you. My exchange is showing as accepting orders but I assume my cabinet is not enabled.

I did see that spreadsheet a while ago and it said my postcode BN26 6AH is due in June but on the infinity checker and talk talk they still say unavailable.

Is there anyway to be sure? I would rather know one way or the other if ill be able to get fibre.

Thank you for any assistance

Thank you for lookng. All of those postcodes are other roads on the estate that was built at the same time.

I'm pretty sure we have underground cabinets and cabling as there are no visible telephone lines or cabinets on the whole estate. I will have a look around for "cabinet 65".

Presumably it is marked up? I'd like to actually know where it is, just out of interest.

It should be at the front of the estate or will be at either end of the main road at the roundabouts.

Yes, turns out that you are correct. The cabinet is down Kaye Don Way, with a lovely patch of grass right next to it which would fit a fibre cabinet beautifully.

Unfortunatley ADSL24 has just confirmed to me that there are no plans to Fibre Enable the cabinet. That makes me very sad indeed. I might consider bonding from BE instead.

Or ADSL24?

They don't appear to have a bonding option, or am I mistaken?
