FTTC availability question


[link to this post]
 
I'm looking at buying a house, and one of the criteria for us is availability of FTTC. I don't have a number to search on, but obviously an address, which yields the results below. Does the fact that there is no mention of FTTC mean it's not coming to this cabinet?

That doesn't sound promising, and slow speeds on ADSL as well !

Check to see if it's in a BDUK area as they don't show on the checker until they're ready to accept orders

Sky broadband MAX

The force may be with them, but it won't prevent their assimilation

New to this. How do I do that?

Which county is the property located?

Each county has its own broadband project, they will be able to say if the property is part of the rollout- alternatively you can look at the high level maps to see if the area is part of the projects deployment.

The cabinet is connected to the exchange in Alton, Hampshire, which shows as Accepting Orders.

It mentions
Fibre Multicast -- -- -- Available
which indicates the cabinet is fibre-enabled

That's what I thought, but I'm puzzled as to why there's no entry for FTTC.

If I go through the BT order process for the actual address, the site suggests neither Infinity nor Faster Broadband are available. I just want to know if that's a permanent situation or if I can expect it to arrive in the near future.

Re run the check and see if you get a cabinet number

All cabs except 10,15,16,17 and 31-36 fibre enabled.....if no cabinet number you could be exchange only.

Thanks for the detailed response. Cabinet number is 26, so should be fibre enabled, so why no entry for FTTC?
