So near..yet so far!


[link to this post]
 
I've had to put up with shoddy 900-1.5mb download speed for nearly 6 years now, so was delighted to see the utilities putting in fibre in my village about 3 months ago. I spoke to an open reach engineer whilst he was working on the green cabinet 300 yards away from my house and he said that the village should be FTTC enabled by June this year.

My friend who lives about about 0.5 mile down the road was contacted by Talk Talk about a month ago to see if he wanted to upgrade to fibre which he is in the process of doing, yet when I try and see if I can get it it says it is not yet available to me..can anyone provide me with a reason why I can't get it, it's so frustrating!!!

My exchange is South Elmsall

Thanks in advance

I think you're going to have to provide a postcode to get a sensible answer.

I live just around the corner from you and i have BT Infinity but im on a different cab to you. I did notice there is some work going on at your nearest cabinet(the one next to the shop near school street) This may explain why it not showing available

using your postcide get the following from BT wholesale checker

Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 30th September 2012. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 52.5 Mbps and upstream line speed of 13.2 Mbps

Those dates are placeholders. If the cabinet doesn't hit target, the date rolls over to the end of the next quarter.. It could happen sooner than the end of September.

the Bt Wholesale site said june 30 when i checked but i have had BT Infinity since march so my cab was enabled early. There is something going on at your nearest cabinet as there are barriers around it and workman signs up.
