Confusion on dates - Monmouth (SWMU)


[link to this post]
 
The Openreach Fibre website shows this exchange as "CS" with text saying September 2013 but the Superfast Cymru website says June 2014.

Which do I believe? I rang Sky (as that is my provider) and they say their system has no knowledge of any activation for FTTC

Do you guys have any greater knowledge/insight?

N.B my sig below is wrong. I'm Sky LLU

Neither until you can order you should not get excited

Coming to an exchange does not guarantee your line will get fibre broadband

So ... I emailed Superfast Cymru and they insist their date (June 2014) is correct but now BT Openreach have revised their date to December 2013.

However, the much more relevant development is I happened to be working from home and saw two Openreach engineers walk down my drive. I popped out for a chat and they informed me they were checking the infrastucture for FTTP - woohooo!

FTTP in the tiny rural village of Monmouth - that's a result

I would expect the FTTC cabs to be live before long before FTTP areas, and this may go same way to explain the differing dates. Although the exchange may go live before the end of the year , I would expect most cabs wont be live until 2014.
