My house has been scheduled for FTTP for ages now but I've had no success in getting it.
Since the recent update to the BT wholesale checker, my address now shows the following info, which includes a sentence that (I believe) people who are getting FTTC don't see:
Address, EX2 5JB on Exchange EXETER is served by Cabinet 25
WBC ADSL 2+ Up to 2.5 -- 1 to 4 Available
ADSL Max Up to 2 -- 1 to 3.5 Available
WBC Fixed Rate 1 -- -- Available
Fixed Rate 1 -- -- Available
Our records show the following FTTP network service information for these premises:- Single Dwelling Unit Residential .
For all ADSL and WBC Fibre to the Cabinet (FTTC) services, the stable line rate will be determined during the first 10 days of service usage. Throughput/download speeds will be less than line rates and can be affected by a number of factors within and external to BT's network, Communication Providers' networks and within customer premises.
The Stop Sale date for Datastream is from 30-Jun-2012; the Formal Retirement date for Datastream is from 31-Jan-2014. The Stop Sale date for IPstream is from 31-Jan-2013; the Formal Retirement date for IPstream is from 31-Jan-2014.
Note: Please note that postcode and address check results are indicative only. Most accurate results can be obtained from a telephone number check.
I phoned BT to see if they could place and order and after educating the assistant on what FTTP even was, she said it was not available to me.
Any ideas what the FTTP sentence above indicates and whether it should be taken with a pinch of salt?
