Will I ever be able to receive FTTC?


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I am being trying (so far unsuccesfully) to discover whether my line will ever be 'Infinity enabled'. My exchange (EMHARDI) has been upgraded and a number of cabinets in my area have been upgraded but so far mine has not. I have tried calling BT customer services and they simply tell me to keep checking their website and are unable to supply a date. I have also canvassed my BT account manager as I manage a helpdesk for a company in Northampton but they too don't appear to know. My postcode is NN4 6HR. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Gary

Is there a new cab next to your cab P73 ?

Hello,

No, there has been 2 cabinets at the top of the road (Walkers Way) since I moved into the area 6 years ago (see pic - http://goo.gl/maps/mc5C).

My village (Wootton) contains a number of new estates of which mine is approx 10 years old. I am concerned that our cabinet cabling (which is underground) may have been daisy-chained from the older overground cabling leading through the centre of the village.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Gary

You mean the feed to your cabinet ? Then no, this is always underground. If it goes overhead after the cabinet, then this is of no concern to the NGA planners either.

Those don't look like BT cabs to me, but can't really tell much from that picture. Do they have numbers on?

Real photos, (uploaded) somewhere), maybe showing just one each, might help as well.

Those are TPON (or were) cabinets which means the area was served by Fibre/Copper overlay originally.

Looking at your postcode on the latest data from Openreach suggests you are definitely connected to cabinet 73 and that this will be getting FTTP (not FTTC) in Phase 10a (this year).
