I have been holding off upgrading to VDSL until I landed a new job, as I didn't want to commit to the additional expense in the short term.
Regular checks against my phone number, since July onwards, on various availability checkers (BT Wholesale included) indicated that my line should support around 50Mbps - My house is approx. 800m from the cabinet.
A poster recently appeared on the cabinet advertising superfast broadband availability and BT flyers have been received in the post.
HOWEVER - when I decided to take the plunge today and enquire about upgrading, my ISP (Zen) told me that the checker was indicating no availability at my location. Sure enough - in the past 2 days all of the checkers have removed any reference to FTTC availability for my phone line.
My location is ML3 7XA and I think the cabinet is No.37 off the Hamilton exchange - the only cabinet for our village.
Can anyone offer an opinion as to what has happened? Is it possible that maximum orders have now been fulfilled by BT for my location and I am too late to be connected?
