Drop Pin Removed


[link to this post]
 
The broadband FTTC post code checker has had a drop pin showing until yesterday which showed a message saying about the delay to our cab. Now its been removed.
has this happend to all postcodes or just ours. Does this meen anything? . The forecast date has now been moved to the end of June 13. Just wondering if OR are not going to enable our new FTTC cab even though its has power and fibre laid to it.

The pin on our one was removed as well. Tried the checker and it now says fibre available.

Our drop pin has been removed, and now my forecast date, which jumped from June 12 -> Sept 12 -> Dec 12 -> Never -> Mar 13, is now showing as Mar 14.

Not happy.

My parents (Crawley, Sussex) has been moved to Mar 14 as well. When I contacted nga.enquiries the response last year was that the council had rejected all the planning applications and so the cabinet had been put to the back of the queue! (My parents get 5meg ADSL at present).

Uhm, what?

Planning applications are only needed in sensitive areas.

BT tried that around here and when I checked with the council it was found applications hadn't been filed in the first place - the council also pointed out that they bend over backwards to ensure FTTC applications are expedited, because of consumer demand.

In sensitive areas applications are seldom refused and any variants are mostly a requirement to use different colours or wooden facade panels. There have been very few outright refused unless there are a bunch of NIMBYs in an area - such as Muswell Hill in london.

Do you want to stop spam, or do you just want to stop receiving it?

I'll chase the NGA enquiries email again, as that is what I was told - maybe they used it as an excuse for some other issue (power perhaps).
