Hey guys. Long story short, BT recently got in touch with us over the phone to offer us one of their Broadband packages. My Dad isn't the most savvy when it comes to internet architecture and with us being on an ADSL2+ line he's even more confused over how it all works, because it's usually me who deals with anything broadband related.
Anyway, they got onto the subject of the fibre rollout and whilst they confirmed that our exchange is due for fibre in September (Scarisbrick) they went on to say that an installation can usually happen "within 6-8 weeks of an exchange being upgraded". They also stated that "existing BT customers would always get priority on fibre installations when they become available."
My two questions are this:
1) Are they trying to insinuate that our cabinet (Cabinet 3) will also be upgraded in that 6-8 week period directly following the installation of fibre at the exchange? The last time I asked about my cabinet on these forums I was informed by your helpful members that no date(s) for my cabinet had even been set - is this still the case?
2) The whole "priority" thing didn't make sense to me - are BT using this line to try and dupe people who are uneducated on the matter or is there actually some truth in this?
