BT Announce Another 98 Exchanges


[link to this post]
 
BT have announced another 98 exchanges whilst at the same time pushing back the dates of those comming soon. Most of the Jun 12 ones have now been pushed back to Sep

The chances of BT meeting its target of FTTC enable exchanges seems to be rapidly disappearing

And care to share the analysis of the 1000's of cabinets being pushed back, or is the sample the usual - one or two?

Yep very annoyed that my exchange has been pushed back till Sept, been looking forward to June for ages. They managed to complete another exchange a few miles down the road in June when promised, but delayed our local exchange.

How very dare they make you wait another 3 month.
I bet you wish they would just forget your exchange like they have done with many and that way you would not be so annoyed when they had to push back your special date.

I feel your pain.
May god be with you

Infinity Website says Accepting orders.

Wholesale checker says pushed to Sept 2012

What one is usually correct ? (I am guessing the wholesale checker) although it seems a little naughty if BT are implying I can order it via them but not anyone else.

@iwish

From that reply it sounds like your a lot more frustrated than me.

Maybe me being annoyed was a little strong, I'm a little gutted then it was not done in June because I was expecting it since last year. Nothing wrong with anticipating a date only to be disappointed.

Oh and please keep your imaginary creator well away from me, thanks.

Accepting orders means THE EXCHANGE not every cabinet.

The ADSL checker tells you (in theory) the situation for your line.

Since eveybody who had a date of 30/06/2012 has been pushed to September 30th 2013 does not mean they will all have to wait that long.

Cabinets are enabled gradually within an exchange area depending on number of subscribers, further works to unblock ducts etc.

Your cabinet could be enabled next week or it could be months away - we cannot tell.

You ARE lucky that your exhange is enabled - many people are still waiting for the exchange to be scheduled, works to start and their cabinet enabled.

It makes no difference which supplier you would order the service through - they all have to wait for Open Reach to enable the cabinet and the ALL suppliers can, if they wish, offer the service.

Ex <n>ildram , been to SKY MAX - 15,225 Download
BE Unlimited - 21,000 Download 1,200 Upload ON THE LINE THAT SKY COULD ONLY PROVIDE 15,255 DOWN AND 800 UP ON!!!,
Moved house, now BE Unlimited 6,500 Down, 1Mb/s up - gutted!
FTTC Cab installation commenced 12th April - expect full 80 / 20 - bye bye BE, hello BT Infinity soon!
