FTTC/P LSFARN


[link to this post]
 
A friend has just moved house and will be in the Farningham exchange area. He has no phone line at present and estimates of broadband speeds are pretty dire, under 1Mbps - so bad that Sky have refused to transfer him as they would not be able to provide a service within their own terms ! So he's currently calling BT and the rest, but that's not the question.

In the Openreach list of 'coming soon' exchanges LSFARN is shown as FTTC/P Jun-14 - how does he get to find out if he will be able to get FTTP or a likely estimate of FTTC speeds if not ? SamKnows reports that he's 3.75Km from the exchange and the BT checker say's he's on cabinet 7.

I'm only asking myself as he's got no Internet connection just now.

FTTC. PCP is located http://goo.gl/maps/HxzWx .Any idea how far the property is from the cabinet?

From there, about 350-400 metres, Underground ducting is seen all up the same road

Electrical works have just been carried out in the last few days, on behalf of BT according to roadworks.org. Wonder how long before they start to accept orders now ?
I am going down there myself next week so will try and look for the new cabinet around where the existing P9 is.

Drat - BT checker shows this has slipped, again, from Jun 30th to Sept 30th frown

Then again, the new cabinet is there, I've seen it myself, and electrics have been done, so it make be sooner - I keep looking...
