In reply to a post by shaneosborne:
Hi, I hope someone can help as im a little confused...

FTTC is available along my street and most of our local area but for some reason it's not available to me as I live in a block of flats. I asked BT why this is and they say it's down to planning permission from my landlord crazy


Your block has a cabinet in the basement perhaps?

Maybe they confused it with fttp very easily done.

What does the BT Wholesale checker say for your line, and the telephone number for the property closest to your flats.

Also do any exchange only lines show up when you check postcode at http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre/checker.php

If flats were added to the area some years after the phone wiring appeared, you may have exchange only lines.

So what does the checker actually say, the phoneline may head towards the cebinet, but it might just pass straight under it and all the way back to the exchange.

Post got deleted because of the referral links in the signature, which goes against the rules of the site.

Links to personal sites are evaluated, and where people link to something useful, rather than purely income generating then they are generally allowed.

We have also checked the latest Openreach data, which tells us the following:

Where cabinets/fibre have been installed orders are being accepted, you can check with your telephone number at the BT Wholesale Checker.

BTw Checker on number;

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 2Mbps.


Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL Max broadband line speed of 7.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 6.5Mbps and 8Mbps.


Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 17Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 15.5Mbps and 18.5Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 1.5Mbps and downstream line speed of 17Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 15.5Mbps and 18.5Mbps.

That says that all the phone lines on that postcode are scheduled for FTTP. Are you sure the others on the street are FTTC, not FTTP?

FTTP is not currently being installed at multi-occupancy buildings, even if the area in general is getting it. Not good news I'm afraid frown.

Flats are something they are working on doing though, but the original BT person was right, in that if the landlord says no there is very little BT can do.
