Any better data sources than BT?


[link to this post]
 
I'm on Burghill exchange, cabinet 1 (actually situated at Credenhill) HR4 7FA.
In their infinite wisdom they have dragged in fibre straight past this cabinet, all the way through the village to cabinet 2 and enabled that about 6 months ago.

I can't get any date for cabinet 1 out of BT nor fastershire.com. All they are prepared to say is that it should/maybe/might/possibly etc.. be enabled at sometime frown
Which is pretty much next to useless, no that's unfair, it is useless smile

thanks

Believe P4 is the next one to go live, but cannot give any data. As for the others i.e. 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 no indications of plans or dates.

Current project is 90% fibre based coverage across Herefordshire & Gloucestershire, so they might miss out some cabinets in current project.

Open reach are now saying look for an update to their plans in Feb 2016.
So it seems cab 1 is being missed altogether.

Unbelievable, the biggest village in Herefordshire and they are missing half of it out, while spending money running fttp around much smaller villages.
