Quick Fibre Cab question


[link to this post]
 
Hello All

I noticed in Oct/Nov 2012 that cabs either side of my cab were getting fibre cabs fitted.

Checking list it showed I was unlucky and they were skipping my cab frown

I recent checked http://dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome

And its now stating my cab is to be made fttc by 31st march 2013

I was wondering if this is true as it seems strange to skip my cab then return so soon after doing the cabs either side

exchange LVWID

postcode WA8 3HX .. CAB 53

many thanks to any 1 who can shed light on this tongue

Did you use your phone number in that checker?

If you just used the postcode that's unreliable, given that two cabinets serve yours and the other is in Phase 8b, which sounds about right.

The phone number is by far the best checker. If you don't have one it recognises, then the full address.

Oh noooooo!

There'll be people on here who are horrified to hear that a Virgin subscriber is planning to swap to BT-based fibre. They can't understand why BT are choosing to enable cabinets in those areas at all...

In the end I kept my adsl line as well never trusting virgin media ..funny how they confirmed my fears

I expect he'd be happy with that, seeing as 12 months ago his cabinet wasn't scheduled smile.

True. My cab only appeared on the list last December. Only got the March date 2 weeks ago. New cab should be here soon I guess. :-/

Better late than never eh smile

Just a quick update from nga.enquiries@openreach.co.uk

"Your locality has recently been reassessed for inclusion in a later phase of work in your area. At present all the works steps have to be done and the current estimated date for cabinet lvwid53 enablement is close June 2013 assuming there are no major issues."

seems they a re running a bit behind

better late than never I suppose smile
