I'm not sure from your post which exchange you are actually connected to.
I assume you are on full LLU (MPF) with TalkTalk, where your phone number will not work in this checker.
If it does work in there, you are on partial LLU (SMPF). If it doesn't, please use the Address option, (not the pure postcode option which can be unreliable), and post the result. The cabinet line (with your address edited out), and the contents of the table. The guff before and after doesn't matter.
Basically in your case I don't think it matters where the FTTC cabinets are fed from. It is frequently not from the "phone" exchange. I don't see how it affects your decision about whether or not to switch to BT Retail from TalkTalk.
Bear in mind that BT Infinity will almost certainly be far more expensive than TalkTalk Fibre, and that difference could be greater that the saving in getting BT Sport free. BT are also getting a lot of complaints recently about the Home Hub 5 they issue to many new customers, and quite a few on these forums are buying something else. Another (one-of) substantial cost.
Sorry RobertoS ..
1. I thought I had made it clear that I was connected to the Freeland exchange with me on TalkTalk because that is the only exchange available to the villages.
2. If a subscriber uses TalkTalk and he is very close to this exchange he can get up to the maximum of available download speed. I am 1.7 km from it and I used to get 15.19 Mbps last year, then it dropped down to around 13.32 Mbps now it is around 11.5 Mbps. I assume this is because the capacity is being used up by more people using broadband in the local vicinity. By the way, I have fitted a filtered faceplate and the appropriate wiring to my own Netgear DGND 3700 and along with this my TalkTalk line has been tweaked for maximum gaming speed (not interleaved) and accessing a gaming server as an administrator in Buffalo in the US.
3. As I understand it, if the subscriber is with any other ISP, no matter how close he is to the exchange then TalkTalk only allow up to 8Mbps as they are the sole LLU. I did check this out because I carry out wiring for free to the locals as I am retired (ex IT) old geezer with time on his hands. Every time I put in filtered faceplates for Sky and other subscribers I find the limitation. I also asked Sky (I am a sky subscriber - not broadband) and they said the maximum they were allowed to give me was 2Mbps. This was some years ago, so it might be out of date.
4. Anyway, I digress. The reason we wanted to know to which exchange the cabinets were connected to was for interest sake and to complete the local discussion on the Long Hanborough website quoted above.
5. I had already used the link to check my line and as you will know it does not find any record because I am on TalkTalk. The address part worked and says......
Downstream Line Rate(Mbps)

1. The "Available" is incorrect. I have read somewhere that 14th June 2014 is the go live date, and another one states the 30th June.
2. I am around 200 metres from Cabinet 3 that the above quotes and it says Freeland exchange. So it is the Freeland exchange and not the Witney exchange!
