Fibre in Crawley (West Sussex) ??


[link to this post]
 
I know that the main town centre exchange in Crawley has fibre but does anyone know whether the smaller exchange at Pound Hill has fibre (or any plans to). I am currently with Talk Talk and their website says I can get fibre but when I have looked at other sites it doesn't come up!
Any clues? If it helps my postcode is RH10 7SB.
Thanks
Rob

This website says that Pound Hill is accepting orders: http://www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when/.

The BT wholesale checker is usually most accurate, but that's for the phone number input. With postcode, it is less accurate.

What does this: https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html checker say about your phone number and/or full address?

That is what most ISPs use (or an API at least) to check availability.

Also shows people with fibre speeds in the area, showing that some have managed to order and get the service installed.

Could easily be VM users on coax.

And it tells you which provider when you click on the speed, showing the range and providers if more than one test

Would be nice if we could click each ISP and get a breakdown of each test and the date, I can see I'm the fastest for my area as the upper range matches my speed test smile (Just my neighbours haven't tried your speed test as I know they are faster)
