I'm on the Bridge of Dee exchange (code WSBDD) in rural south Scotland. I have ADSL Max 20CN, up to 8 MBPS, and like the rest of the village (I think) I'm on an EO line. According to my ISP (Plusnet), contention at the exchange is very high, due to near full capacity, thus download speeds at times are very low.
Fibre is supposed to be available soon in some of our area as part of Digital Scotland's superfast rollout but their rollout coverage map has no geographical features such as towns, roads etc (except the coastline) so pinpointing a small area like ours with accuracy is not possible. However, two new slim green cabinets have recently been installed outside the exchange, hopefully PCP and FTTC cabinets.
When I key my phone number or Post Code into https://www.dslchecker.bt.com it shows the ADSL Max and Fixed Rate products only, no FFTC. However, when I key our Post Code into the Openreach Superfast Fibre Website checker, up pops a map with a green 'Accepting Orders' icon!
Does this mean FTTC might be on its way? Any relevant insight based on knowledge and experience gratefully received
