postcodes and fibre


[link to this post]
 
Im moving next week and been to look around the new place today theres a new cab 20 meters from front door .
Just came of phone from BT and they are telling me the postcode ive been giving for the new place is wrong . Ive checked on the post office site and got another postcode did a fibre search and it says 9mb only .
But when i search a mates address 40 meters away he gets the full 80/20 same cabnet .


just clicked on bt openreach where n when site did my post office postcode and house number and it says the following .

Exchange name: Church Stretton

Status: Accepting orders

Good news. Your serving cabinet is enabled for fibre broadband. Please note, in a minority of instances that doesn't guarantee your availability. Contact your preferred communications provider for your home or business to order.


help anyone ?

Are you getting these figures from http://www.dslchecker.bt.com/adsl/adslchecker.welcome using the full address option in each case? And the cabinet number is the same in each case? Sounds like a possible database error if so.

I think theres been a mistake with the post code .
The post code what the housing gave me dont work but the post code from the post office postcode checker brings up the address

both postcodes feed of the same cabnet as well

Yes, the Royal Mail database is the only one that counts. The usual answer would be to order a product and see what happens, but with an estimate as low as 9Mbps you might even have trouble doing that. Over to someone with more knowledge to check it out - maybe you could post the postcode here.

Edit: just seen PM.
Further edit: that confused me more as there are two different streets involved. I'll reply to one of the PMs.

The addresses in Willow Meadow (SY6 6EH) are showing as FTTC not available, those in Lawley Close (SY6 6EL) are showing as FTTC up to 80/20 (and with much higher ADSL speeds). Both show as cabinet 9 on the Church Stretton exchange so it looks like something is wrong on the database. You will not be able to order FTTC at all in Willow Meadow as it stands.

The BT Wholesale checker says it's connected to a cabinet!
