FTTC in Carlisle begins its roll-out (Part 2)


[link to this post]
 
Part 1 - Here

Mod closed the other one since it was getting a bit to long, so I started up part 2 tongue

Noticed that the exchange has changed to 'accepting orders' on the openreach fibre map (Found Here)

(Could any mods link this one in part 1 since I can't?)

From what ive seen on other posts that just means that carlisle has the required number of cabs live, have you tryied ordering yet? Havnt been past the cab to see if its humming but was told ours is ready.

Edit: Cab still listed as 30th for my number

---------------------------

I live for the one, I die for the one.
Yep i really am THAT thick!

Smallworld Cable ..... 5Meg then upped to 20Meg
O2 ADSL2+ .... 13.6Meg (ish)
Sky ADSL2+ .... 3.5Meg
Sky FTTC .... Should be getting the full 40/10 to start, upgrading to pro if i need it (EST speeds 72.1/20)

Only 1 cabinet is required for a exchange to go live, their where multiple threads saying x number of cabs had to be ready for a exchange to start accepting orders, this was proved to be wrong.

Tried to order today, still saying the 30th.
The openreach guy said it should be some time this week though.

I tried sky, woman pretty much said "computer say's no.........." but couldn't say if it was because they wernt ready yet or because the cab hadn't been released by openreach.

Will try again when it is

There can be a lag for sky, they have to connect up the correct pieces of string before they can go live. Anything between a couple of days, to never...

Sky are without a doubt the best low cost ISP for adsl, I'm hoping their fibre product is as good, but i dont know how long i can resist....

I may give BT a ring tomorrow, because I don't think the online checker is 100% accurate.
I'm really not sure why openreach are not releasing it if it's ready...
