How long for the DSL Checker to get updated?


[link to this post]
 
Hello All

Just noticed that the BTOR Where and when page now says Accepting orders for both our landline as well as the full address, I nearly choked on my drink when I saw it display AO (Accepting Orders) on the map, where as before its been saying UR (Under Review) tongue
Sadly however BT's DSL Checker still says no fibre.

So I am just wondering how long until the DSL checker and other ISP's gets updated.

Thanks
Paul

BT Wholesale add range qualifiers so if you are a long way from the cab it may never show.

Best to double check with a house number and postcode that is very close to the cab.

Its FTTP Andrew.
I think there is a fibre node in an underground chamber on one of our side roads, BTOR was doing work on it near the end of Feb.
So I am gathering all that they would need to do is just blow fibre from there to our manifold in the pit/up the pole and then into our home.

That final bit of fibre blowing is only done once you order, give it a few more days and if the checker has not updated get back to us on email and include property details and will use a bit of pester power.

I thought that the last bit would be blown when its ordered, makes sense.

Wholesale checker and the Where & When page both updated on the same day (overnight/early morning) that the cabinet went live for me, and was then confirmed as "live" almost a week later by the local BDUK website with the date of when the checkers first showed FTTC availability.

All ISP's I tried were showing FTTC the same morning.
