Shouldn't be long I wouldn't think. Phase 8a. Find cabinet 43 and look for a new cabinet near to it, or pavement markings for one perhaps.

What does this checker have to say for your phone number?

Presume you mean 8a wink

The wholesale checker shows nothing relating to FTTC for his address range.

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 5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 4Mbps and 6Mbps.

Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 7.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 6.5Mbps and 8.5Mbps. Our test also indicates that your line could support an estimated ADSL 2+ Annex-M broadband upstream line speed of 1Mbps and downstream line speed of 7.5Mbps; typically the downstream speed would range between 6.5Mbps and 8.5Mbps.

The actual stable line speed supportable will be determined during the first 10 days of use. This speed may change over time, to ensure line stability is maintained.

If you decide to place an order, a further test will be performed to confirm if your line is suitable for the service you wish to purchase.

Thank you for your interest.

I think this may be his cabinet http://goo.gl/maps/Wddd5

Have a look and see if it has a 43 on it, and if it's FTTC twin is installed near by.

You can also look on Roadworks.org as it covers your area and see what roadworks BT has scheduled.

They seem to be installing cabinets in Southcliff Park at the moment, so work in your area is still in progress, and it can take months from when your cabinet appears. Mine appeared in February and I've just been connected this afternoon smile

The one I linked to is PCP 43.

Click http://www.productsandservices.bt.com/consumerProduc...

Then click Can I get Infinity button.

Click I'm not with BT, enter 999 as the house number and enter CO15 3PD as the postcode.

Not enter just the postcode again and click search smile


And the resultant list will have all addresses and other items including the DSLAM and PCP - doesn't seem to work for every cabinet, but did in this case.

Did that post code trick to see my friend's street since his cab is located at the end of his road.

Strangely there are actually two listings for 'Street Side Dslam Cab' one ending mwd and the other mwn.

Is it normal for two cabinets to be on the same street. It's not particularly long with the highest house number being 34 and some numbers are even left out.

Anyone else seen anything similar?

Send an email to the Tendring District Council, they have an up-to-date spreadsheet list of all the fibre cabinets.

Keep in mind that this is only fibre from the exchange to the cabinet, the remaining part of the line is still the old copper wire. Though faster than ADSL2+, it is NOT a complete fibre-optic line to the house.
