Just received this email below. The strange thing is Stechford exchange was enabled last year. However our cabinet (24) has not been upgraded to FTTC.

We have been made aware that some people have received an incomplete version of this email - please accept our apologies and find below an updated version.

Dear *******,

Thanks for telling us that you're interested in superfast fibre broadband.

We're really pleased to let you know that your local exchange, Stechford, has been added to our rollout plans.

You can get more details about the current status of the Stechford exchange, and find out when superfast fibre broadband will be available, using our new interactive map at www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when.

Because there are instances where we can't upgrade every single street cabinet, we'd advise you to contact your preferred Communications Provider and use their line checker to find out whether or not your property will be able to get superfast fibre broadband.

Satisfy your need for speed, with downloads of up to 100Mbit/s and join our superfast fibre revolution.

Regards,


Openreach Marketing

Yes that's what it stated in the email.

Here is the screenshot of the email.

I got these emails too, about the Ballymena exchange, what a complete and utter waste of bandwidth they are.

For what it's worth, I got this mail yesterday as well, about the Erdington exchange. The exchange has been accepting orders for quite a long time relatively speaking, but my cabinet (129) is one of the few in the area that's never been upgraded. Can't say I'm holding my breath for it to be upgraded any time soon either...

Who knows, your cabinet may not be enabled but you might have FTTP available! Somehow doubt it though, more likely a waste of bandwidth as has already been said...

I got one yesterday too, for my exchange at Yardley Gobion. They neglected to mention the exchange name though, with just "[Exchangename]" in the email. This exchange certainly isn't fibre enabled yet though, unlike a lot of the exchanges you guys have received similar mails about.

Have sent an enquiry email to see what is going on and asked why 100 Mbps is mentioned in all the emails I've seen.

I got two emails. one with {Exchange Name} and then a second with the actual name. As if it was supposed to be sent out.

My exchange is still on the under evaluation in somerset. The open reach checker stopped display exchanges yesterday too.

This has got my hopes up, but my head is telling me it is all in error. (from the days of the adsl rollout hassle in 2003-2005).

I got one about Sheffield Cutler, but when going to the www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when link in the email it still says NC (Not currently in rollout plans).

I'm guessing they just spammed everybody to get their hopes up
