Portsmouth Exchange Cabinet 66


[link to this post]
 
I am in the Portsmouth Exchange (SDPCNTC) area and my line is on cabinet 66. The Exchange is showing as accepting orders for fibre but apparently cabinet 66 has not been upgraded. I have been trying to find out when this is likely to happen with no success. I was wondering if anyone had managed to get any information about this particular cabinet.

Thanks,
Alan

Have you tried this website - http://fttc-check.alc.im/

Enter your postcode without any spaces.

Just did a lookup for cabinet 66 for you and it seems to support about 8 post codes, however it returned the following for phone cabinet 66:

Exchange: SDPCNTC
Name: PORTSMOUTH
Status: Accepting Orders
Availability: Now

Cabinet (PCP) No: 66
Cabinet Vendor:
Probability: 99%
Uplift: 7.61
Phase: Phase 10b
Deployment Date:
Status: Part of BT's 66% Commercial Plan

Seems that your Exchange has been fibred up, but you have to wait for them to install the fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) or install the fibre to your house (FTTP)
As for when we have no clue due to no deployment date has been set.

I am in the same boat as you and have been waiting since 2011 when the work was started and was then stopped.
Also your phone cabinet's status is the same as mine "Part of BT's 66% Commercial Plan" so you should be part of the 66% that is paid by BT.

Anyway I hope that helps.

Thanks Paul and B31 for the very helpful information. I had not picked up on that site. I will have to try to do some searching for the timetable for Phase 10b!

Once you find the estimated date, add a random number of days to it!

Somewhere between 180 and 365 should do.

Phase is irrelevant as they mix and match all it tells you if it is on the plan
