Can't get fibre...direct connection to exchange


[link to this post]
 
Fibre is available in my area but I'm not connected to a green cabinet as I have a direct connection to the exchange, (approx 400m) for my DSL broadband.

I keep an eye on my local councils planning applications and an application for a green fibre cabinet has been submitted and approved (Aug 2013), which is approx 200m away from me.

Will this mean my line will or could be switched to the cabinet? If not can I ask for that to happen?

Thanks

Very unlikely and "how deep are your pockets?" respectively I'm afraid. It will only benefit those who are already served by the linked cabinet.

Unless of course that new cabinet is for exchange only lines. One thing the OP can do is see if there are any existing cabinets close to the new one, if not it may be for exchange only lines. Usually they end up being outside the exchange though.

Im in the same situation as the OP in that I'm on a long EO line approx 4 km and about 3 weeks ago I had a BT engineer at my door wanting to access the pole which is situated in my garden to do a survey for superfast BB. He said that they were surveying lines on the estate for either fttp/fttc so I can only hope its sooner than later.

I'm hoping that, as I stay slap-bang in the centre of town, that my line will be bundled, as it were, with all the businesses and moved to the fibre cabinet....if such a thing is possible

Which exchange are you on, out of interest?

Doesn't look like BT have started tackling the EO lines there yet, but they have begun in certain exchanges so there is hope yet.

Is there anyway to find out which exchanges with EO Lines have been tackled?
