Where is my nearest fibre cabinet?


[link to this post]
 
I luve in Wandsworth, London.

My post code is SW18 3RG & I am thinking of ordering fibre to the cabinet FTTC.

How do I find where my nearest fibre-enabled cabinet is?

I have cabinet 40 really near me but do not know if it is fibre-enabled?

Google Map: http://goo.gl/maps/8Ibpn

Thank you in advance,
Nico Morrison

Wandsworth Cab 40 is enabled for FTTC

Use this checker (phone number or address) to see the estimated speed: BT Wholesale Checker

Some addresses in that postcode appear to be exchange only others appear to be on cab 40 and getting near full speed estimates.

I suggest putting your phone number in the checker if your not LLU (IE Sky or TT) and see what it says.

If it does not recognise your number try the address checker

If you are exchange only it means no fibre to the cabinet Internet for you when enabled so worth checking the post code checker etc posted by the above poster.

Thank you all, I am praying that Wandsworth Cabinet 40, which is less than 200m (including wiggles & going up two floors) from my flat, will be the one when the connection is upgraded this Wednesday. My line is not BT & does not show up in the availability checker, but if I put in a local shop line (100m from me) I get good news!

Telephone Number 0208874**** on Exchange WANDSWORTH is served by Cabinet 40

Now I just have to hope that Talktalk deliver the router before the engineer arrives.

This is a great forum, thank you again.

If it's an Openreach installer who visits, then they should be carrying a spare. Depends on what type of task Talk talk have raised, if it has a managed install module on it, if so, they should be happy to leave one with you if yours hasn't arrived.

Did you try the address checker that I posted?

Could you try it, enter your postcode, then submit and select your address.

It should say you are on a cabinet as you have managed to order.

Could you post what it says.

If it doesn't say a cabinet number and you're installation goes ok then it will mean that no cabinet number doesn't always mean an exchange only line.

When I put my post code into the BT checker it shows Cabinet 40 & as not being fibre-enabled; when I run the phone number checker it says I am not on a BT line.

When I put in the number of my local Londis (100 metres away) it shows cabinet 40 with FTTC, very nice.

Since TT are giving me fibre fast, I think I will get it from C40 as in this link: http://bit.ly/12OrgPA

Dunno what more I can research until the engineer arrives...

Strange, I just tried all the flats in your postcode and they either gave an FFTC result on cab 40, or said:

Your address has been successfully matched; however we cannot determine ADSL availability at this address. Please try the Telephone Number or Postcode Checker.


Either way I wouldn't worry, the orders been accepted and your going to be getting a very good speed by the look of things.

In reply to a post by nicomorr:
When I put my post code into the BT checker it shows Cabinet 40 & as not being fibre-enabled;

Was that using the address checker (but using your postcode only, then selecting your address as an intermediate step), or the postcode checker?

The postcode checker has a tendency to miss out FTTC coverage, while the address checker seems to be more correct.
