Neighbours can get FTTC but BT Checkersays I cant


[link to this post]
 
I currently have Virgin cable and was looking to move back to BT or Sky when Fibre available. it is now in my Cabinet and neighbours at bottom half of street are listed but not top half. Street is small cul de sac with 16 semi-detached houses, The 8 houses at top of street are showing Taking Orders but the 8 at bottom part of street show FTTC available and give speed estimates.
Sky shows it is available.
Is this simply the BT database updating is poorly done. All the other streets around using same cabinet (Cabinet 24 on G64 1BJ, G64 1BW, G64 1AB) are showing available, just seems to be the top of my street - nearest neighbour available is literally 10m between their incoming BT line and mine. Also the BT cabling access cover is literally at top of my drive.

Are you sure you're not on an exchange only line?

Pretty certain not - all checks always show connected to cabinet 24, exchange is 1.7km away, The checks do show orders being taken for address but not available, so checks with anyone like Plusnet say not available, Sky indicatesyes but not really trusting this if OR are inidicating not yet.

If you are off of cab 24, at 1.7k away, you are not going to get 80/20. Summit's not right here.

In BT wholesale checker put in postcode G64 1BJ and house number 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,10 you get this showing. Put in 9,11,12,14,15,16,17,18 you dont get FTTC.

Probably a database quirk, email Andrew@thinkbroadband.com i.e. me with the details and include your telephone number so that the bad line is easy to spot and will pass onto Openreach for checking/correction.

Any idea where the cabinet is? Is it one on the corner of Angus avenue? If so, that is around 200m by road - so 80 Mbps speeds are possible.

There is always t possibility of two cables from tne cabinet feeding your road, one of which does a large loop. Possible although maybe unlikely.

Yes, I am pretty sure it is the cabinets at Angus Avenue/Westercleddens Road. There is also a small cabinet about size of suticase at bottom of street.
