Your cabinet p60 was not planned to be enabled in the December 2011 spreadsheet that was leaked to the public.

Since then their have been 5 more spreadsheets but these have remained private- its possible that your cabinet may have a FTTC twin installed via infill when Openreach returns to your exchange, their is some work happening atm- you can see this on roadworks.org

You can contact openereach via this email, add your phone number and address as they will ask for this, it will take between 5-10 days for them to respond due to the amount they recieve.

He meant 2011

http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre/checker.php makes it easy to check the spreadsheet. Just waiting on a more up to date one to leak

I wonder if this is your cab, although it doesn't quite look like a BT PCP.

Problem you have is your estate is relatively new, and was possible not there when the initial roll out for your area was planned.

Just hopping on this discussion...My cabinet has the following details:

Service Type Probability Speed Increase
FTTC 100% 3.5

At present I get 6mb on adsl2+. Does that mean I should expect to get 21mb on Fibre? Even though BT estimate me at 71mb?

Cheers

The BT wholesale asdl checker estimate is the correct one that you can expect to see on FTTC, ignore the speed increase on the spreadsheet.

Brilliant thanks. Although I still doubt that I'll get anywhere near 71mb. Bt estimate my adsl2+ connection at 11mb, and I only get 6.

On a separate note, if someone can take a look at my post in the Technical issues thread, I'd be very grateful. Ta

The BT estimate for the FTTC are actually a bit on the comservative side because they include the estimated reduction in speed due to crosstalk as the more fibre customers get connected.

When I had fibre the BT estimate was 62 Mbps but I actually got 73 Mbps.

E304GX KINGS LYNN FTTC, but not available yet 100% P60

My area is currently being fitted for FTTC.

As far as i can make out my cabinet has been fitted and last week the pavement beside it was dug up and the power was connected by the local electricity company.

The fibre cabinet is situated over the road from the normal telephone cab, will the road need to be dug up to connect the two?

thanks

[re: dufc001] [link to this post]
 
mine is a dec 2012 area.

date given by openreach query 6 dec.

the cabinet across road from me (which i still believe isnt mine but is the one I can watch from my window) had the pavement dug up round it and put in a couple of weeks back maybe 3 weeks cant remember exactly but was fairly recent, and a week or so ago they were feeding ducting to it. How much more work has to be done after that stage no idea tho and I hope it isnt much, the day I spoke to the openreach guys there was a blockage on the last short run to the cabinet from the corner but its possible openreach have been back since and thats resolved as I dont watch it 24/7.
