We are in Ufton Nervet RG7 4EH and connected to Burghfield Common.

I signed up for BT Infinity in December.

The engineer arrived on Monday 19th January. When he had finished setting it up the speed (4Mbits) was slower than we were getting on ADSL (7MBits) so we reverted to ADSL.

Yesterday (26th) somebody from BT (offshore call centre) rang me. They didn't even know why they were ringing me and the call was transferred 3 times (speaking to 4 different BT representatives) with me having to explain the issue to each. Eventually they just cancelled the fibre order as they were unable to help.

We are about a mile from the nearest cabinet and I assume that is the problem although I can't understand why it should be slower than ADSL (BT's line checker is showing 6 - 11 MBits).

This looks like our whole community of Ufton Nervet (about 200 people) aren't going to benefit from the extra money being spent on BT.

Its about 1.1 miles to the cab from your postcode, so about 1,770 meters so at that distance FTTC can be slower than asdl as you have found out- if their is alot of cross talk this will reduce speeds as well.

Cab 5 on the Bughfield Common exchange was upgraded commercially so no public funding was spent on it.

Phase 1 of the project has a target of 92.3% superfast coverage by the end of 2015, Phase 2 will extend this to 95% or higher by the end of 2017. West Berks will have only reached 82.9% superfast coverage by the end of 2015, so combined with the 95% target their is 12.1% of coverage to upgrade by 2017.

So its a case of waiting to see if Ufton Nervet will be covered by phase 2 of the project, details should be known by Summer.

I understand that cabinet 10 in Pangbourne is still in planning state.

Where in Pangbourne is cabinet 10 located?

And when you look at it's location, and realise the traffic on that busy road is doing 40+mph, you'll see why no one likes working in that cab !

I can certainly see your point there.

But there is a 30mph speed limit at this stretch, and shortly before that (in the village) it is even 20mph, as far as I remember.

They would probably close one lane during any work there.
