exchange status changed from coming soon to planned area


[link to this post]
 
Posted a while back that fttc finally seems to be coming to my village originally the bt openreach site listed the status as coming soon but now its been moved to planned area, any idea why this might be i know the engineers where out in the main road clearing the ductwork not long ago and have been laying fibre all along the main road. it just seems weird that both villages either side of mine are likely to be enable soon and it seems like my exchange has been pushed back.

Exchange is long stratton EALST

To be honest I don't place much faith in the Openreach coming soon indicators they move around and lack of detail leaves people guessing.

have you tried chasing Norfolk County Council for information.

Contacted bbfn and they said they will announce future phases via their information sheets which update generally quarterly. They did tell me I was in phase 8 though. Haven't got a clue what phase they are upto though

Phases are usually just an announcement, there is no guarantee that a phase will complete before the next phase starts

Also it doesn't help much if all 185 postcodes for that exchange are all EO Lines.

Yeah, but they would also need to install PCP cabinets as well as fibre ones, or maybe it would be an "all in one" type cabinets.

I was just saying that could add a little delay to the rollout, that's all.

Just making sure, as the internet has people saying EO means zero chance of FTTC still

Yeah, sure, well even I have seen areas when doing look ups that have been EO Lines gradually get moved over to new PCP cabinets and to then get a fibre cabinet installed.

The village where my parents live is listed on Openreach's site as a planned area even though all 3 PCPs have got Huawei 288 cabs attached and two are already powered up. The one that isn't is just waiting for a duct blockage to be cleared so they can run fibre to it.
