How to create your own FTTC/FTTP notification pagewatcher.


[link to this post]
 
I've known for sometime now how to automate the checking of a phone number on the BT Wholesale checker as someone posted a link on here a long time ago (I can't remember who), but now thebigdolphin1 has also posted the URL for checking an address. ADSLMax also found a good page watcher service so I thought I post all the info in one place for easy reference. I've also adjusted the address URL to work with flats or building names instead of a number.

Simply copy the URL link and edit it as required.

Telephone number URL. Change 01234567890 to the phone number you wish to monitor.

Address with house number URL. Change POSTCODE to your postcode (no space) and HOUSE NUMBER to the house number.

Address with building name, for example a flat. Change POSTCODE to your postcode (no space) and BUILDING NAME to the house name, EG Flat1. If you need spaces in the building name try replacing them with %20

To create a page watcher use the this service suggested by ADSLMax

Every time the results page changes when checked by the page watcher service you'll get an email.

Yep these are useful for customers who are waiting for FTTC to become live & available.

Also useful for those that like to keep track of when BT changes their estimated speeds.

I've noticed that in order to get "full functionality" from the link, it's also necessary to correctly set the latest version (currently 41, not 29).

ie/
http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/pls/adsl/ADSLChecker.AddressOutput?URL=&SP_NAME=a%20service%20provider&postcode=POSTCODE&buildingnumber=HOUSENUMBER&VERSION=41&MS=E&CAP=yes&AEA=N

rather than:
http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/pls/adsl/ADSLChecker.AddressOutput?URL=&SP_NAME=a%20service%20provider&postcode=POSTCODE&buildingnumber=HOUSENUMBER&VERSION=29&MS=E&CAP=yes&AEA=N


In particular now the current line-cards in my local FTTC cabinet are full, with the latest version I continue to get FTTC speed estimates shown, and the Availability Status of "Waiting List"; but with the old version number in the URL, the FTTC lines vanish from the output altogether!
