FTTC Availabilty


[link to this post]
 
Hi Guys

Really just need to pick some peoples brains about getting fibre in at home having seen “Fibre is available here” plastered all over the street cabinets in my village and on Saturday receiving and exclusive invitation from BT to join Infinity. Having checked both TalkTalk (Current ADSL supplier) and BT’s website I find that they can only offer me the same products I currently use.

According to the 2011 leaked data I should be active and should have been since June 2012, but I have not been able to place an order for it with ANY ISP I have tried.

This morning I have entered my details in to the BT Wholesale checker and it says I should be able to get fibre. Unless I am reading it wrong. I just don’t seem to be able to actually order it from anywhere. I wondered if the good folks of this site could come up with any ideas or ways forward for me.

I have linked to some screen shots.

I'm afraid that looks like you are misreading it.

It says Fibre Multicast, but that must just be referring to the exchange.

Avove the WBC ADSL2+ line mine has the FTTC estimate:-

WBC FTTC		Up to 51.7	Up to 13.2--	Available
WBC ADSL 2+	Up to 3	--	2.5 to 6.5	Available


Any idea what neighbour's phone numbers show?

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 54.0/14.9Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

What details did you put into the BTW checker? I assume you are on a TT fully unbundled line which the BT checker knows less about than "normal" non LLU lines.

The data in the spreadsheet is interesting as your post code area is covered by CAB 5, CAB 3 and some EO lines.

Have you used the address checker using the house number and the post code? The post code checker is fairly rubbish!

If you are one of the lines which are EO then I would move (unless you want to wait for the currently undecided BT solution for EO lines).

If you arent on CAB 3 it may just be delayed.

It's available on Cab 3 but not Cab 5, I think.

I used the full address checker to get those results.

There is a bit of history with the estate I live on as they initally wired the estate to the town center exchange (some 11 miles away) rather than the local exchange (less than 1 mile away).

Any ideas how I can get a better idea which Cab I am connected to.

When using the "full address checker" did you put in the house number and the post code?

CAB 5 looks as if it is not yet enabled and you "could" be on an EO line.

I used my full address and it reports that I am on cabinet 5 still which is what I thought I had done previously.

Can you explain what an EO line is?
