Errr.

Whatever it is sounds as though it's good, from your reaction.

But whatever NC and FE stand for I don't know tongue smile. Possibly the FE is fibre enabled, but new on these forums I think. Certainly in this one.

What about your cabinet? Is that on the schedule?

I guess FE = Future Exchange and NC = Not Currently in Rollout from the info on the BT Openreach Where and When page

AH, thanks. That sounds almost certain. I did think I must have it wrong, after posting, as he says the end of next year.

I have no idea how to check if my cabinet is or not.. All I know is the number that's painted on it.

Does this checker mention fibre for your phone number? (Assuming you haven't got an LLU phone).

I am with Sky LLU at the moment but I am thinking of going to BT for ADSL as they are likely to have infinity before Sky get round to installing the kit. Then it would be a toss up between PLusnet and Sky for fibre.

Phone with Sky as well as the broadband? Try your address in that checker then. Not just your postcode.

Frankly, in the circs, I'd stick where you are until the time comes. Sky only have to get a £2000 or so link installed at the exchange, so might have it done in time, and both BT and PN can do the return of the phone with possible SIM provide as well. Though the SIM provide may tax them when it's FTTC.

I wouldn't switch to BT on the presumption there would be a delay with Sky.

My cabinet was enabled about 3 days after the exchange went live and Sky was available immediately. It may have been available on other cabinets earlier, I don't know.

Ah thanks. I think I will stay where I am. That checker says nothing yet about FTTC but when it goes to "Coming Soon" ill start to check again.
