Fibre broadband availability


[link to this post]
 
I'd like to sign up for fibre broadband. My exchange is enabled and friends who live a few hundred yards away have been able to preorder however I'm unable to get any information from the BT, Openreach or Infinity as to when I'll be able to get the service. I'm in Spalding, Lincolnshire and linked to green cabinet P40, postcode PE11 3FA. Would be really grateful for any information?

The Openreach 2011 December spreadsheet lists your postcode as unplanned for FTTC, a Isp on this forum does have access to the latest spreadsheets and may be able to say if you cabinet is planned for a later phase

Ribble has found your cabinet- post below

Just received this reply from OpenReach.

'Thank you for contacting us about fibre broadband and apologies for the delay in replying.

We are deploying one of the fastest and largest commercial deployments in the world. Our commercial deployment will have extended to 66% of the UK by the end of December 2014. We aim to extend this to 90% of the UK, in partnership with other sources of funding, e.g. local and National government.
Our deployment is based on the commercial criteria for each cabinet and your cabinet, p40, at this point isnít in our footprint for upgrade.

Where cabinets are not in our footprint or are not commercially viable Government funding is available to county and borough councils and if you can, it is worth registering your interest on the local council website.
You may also wish to lobby your local councillor on progress in your local area.'
