Ely Exchage


[link to this post]
 
Apologies if this has been asked before, buy ELY is not easy to search for as it crops up in a word in most posts.

My sister lives near Ely and I was trying to find out when they will be able to get FTTC.

Openreach site says that ELY is accepting orders.

The BT line check says.
01353XXXXXX on Exchange ELY is served by Cabinet 17

Featured Products
WBC ADSL 2+ 	Up to 2 	-- 	1 to 3.5 	Available
ADSL Max 	Up to 1.5 	-- 	1 to 2.5 	Available
WBC Fixed Rate 	1 	-- 	-- 	Available
Fixed Rate 	1 	-- 	-- 	Available


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.


It seems therefore that cabinet 17 was not part of the rollout.

Is there any way of finding out when it might be included in further plans?.

Thanks in anticipation.

It doesn't look to be part of the current rollout, but that doesn't say whether it will be considered for later in the commercial rollout, or if it is being left for the BDUK-funded project.

To find out what Openreach's plan is for the cabinet, you can email their helpdesk at nga.enquiries@openreach.co.uk

If they tell you that it isn't commercially viable, then the next stop will be the Cambridgeshire BDUK project.

This page probably has the latest details from the project.
