FTTC Available but no one know anything about it?


[link to this post]
 
I've searched a few exchange sites and they all say similar.

Superfast Fibre is in your area but we can't tell by your postcode/number if you can get it right now. Please contact your communications provider, who can check using your phone number.

If I phone BT who is my provider, Nope nothing available, It has been like this for a year or more now, anyone any ideas?

BT's Broadband Availability Checker suggests that most if not all lines in Ronan Manor are Exchange Only lines so FTTC isn't available. BT needs to carry out a network rearrangement and install a PCP (cabinet) before the lines can be upgraded to FTTC. Alternatively you may be lucky and get an FTTP connection.

Right I took this to my MP who in turn passed it on to the Senior Wholesale Services Manager ( BT Ireland) who got in touch today.

You are right nothing is being done and damn all being planned and here is his explanation why.

In my village there is 3 roads, they put cabinets about half a mile out each of these roads giving them fibre at 16mb+, they did this because they could not get speeds over 2mb, they decided that because we are a small village and all close to the exchange we don't need fibre, yep in theory we get 7mb however we are so congested we only get 1, this doesn't matter, all they are taking into account is distance from telephone exchanges no congestion.

More money for faster speeds and pay attention to the figures for difference between fibre based and superfast availability.

Probably just the case that there was other areas where by spending the same amount of money they were able to boost the speeds of more people. Or put another with a limited amount of money to spend you have to decide where to spend it and who to miss out.

So I fall into the 6.3% with no access to an affordable fibre based solution at this time

There are far more than 6.3% currently without access to a fibre connection in the rest of the UK including London and some of the cities.
