I've been waiting for FTTC to arrive at the Cosham exchange in Portsmouth for ages, so It was a pleasant surprise to see the exchange was now showing as accepting orders. When I enter in my postcode it's showing June 2013 (delayed originally from Dec 2013 and then more recently to March 2013). I'm about 2 miles (east) from the exchange, so I thought I'd check using businesses between the exchange and my address, all return June 2013. I then try businesses North, South and West of the exchange all with businesses within a mile up to 2 miles away from the exchange, all return June 2013. I know there might well be one FTTC cabinet in the area accepting orders which is why've they say the exchange is ready, I just don't get why everything around the exchange I've checked all have the June 2013 date. Feels like BT have done the minimum to get the exchange flagged as ready for some progress chart/status report.
I've fired off an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
, their last update back 2nd Jan was my cabinet was planned to be ready early March 2013.
Just me whining about yet another date slip.
