FTTC - Rhyl


[link to this post]
 
Well, well, well... after years of suicidal broadband speeds OR have firmed up a date for Sunny Rhyl!

It was listed originally in Phase 9B for End of 2013, but looks like they've moved it forward. I did email Openreach with my cabinet number and he did say April 2013, but I took it with a pinch of salt. Although over the past week a shiny FTTC box has appeared!

Exchange Name: RHYL
Status: Coming Soon
Forecast date: June 2013

Anyway, there is no value to this post apart from a broadband geek getting very excited and wanted to get excited with other broadband type people! smile

You're not the only one in Rhyl looking forward to FOBB. I've been frothing at the mouth waiting for it for about 2 years!

So everywhere that has FTTC enable, and has access to the Infinity service, will have one of those new cabinets nearby somewhere?

If thats the case, im gonna have a walk around my area, and see if I can find mine. It's got to be around somewhere, because im getting Infinity 2 installed on the 16th.

I live in Rhyl too.

I keep seeing BT installing the Fibre, and also different cabinets popping up.

my cabinet near me looks like the one pictured here.

wonder when the go live date will be, I am currently with sky but out of 12 month contract in April

who is a good option to go for?

I've just migrated from Sky LLU to PlusNET. It was definitely worth the move smile

The ones further down the coast come under the BDUK scheme for Wales, the dates are likely to be on the superfast Wales site first.

The whole of Wales is meant to be 90% covered (population wise) by 2015 so they will have to move fast, and it sounds like they are, as the contract only started last month.

Even more of a surprise, Now not just appearing but some are live.

On the Openreach site Bangor is now live! It appeared this morning on the excel file.

I suspect only a few cabs will be live, Have to find out if anyone can order, fancy trying out some Bangor postcodes on the checker?
