I know you may of looked into this a while back, but thought I would ask for any updates on Cabinet 24 of the Ilford Central (LNILC) Exchange.
We are part of the Commercial FTTP Project according to an email from Executive Level Complaints; BT Consumer.
Your due to be upgraded under a FTTP (Fibre to the Premises project). It is estimated that a large number of customers will benefit from FTTP service in your area.Always makes me laugh when they call it "our suppliers" LOL.
Iíve highlighted your concerns to our suppliers regarding the delays in providing fibre to the premise, They have advised that FTTP projects can take longer than those cabinets being upgraded under the fibre to the cabinet (FTTC) project.
Still not sure that FTTP would take 3.5 years to complete what they started back then.
BTOR (Fibre Enquiries team, Openreach) said similar and said the following:
We appreciate that this is frustrating, however, we will be bringing fibre into your area so please keep an eye on our website from the end of February for an updateI check twice a day, once in the morning and once at night and and 3 months later it's still saying Under Review, I know BT have been doing loads of work (according to roadworks) with reclaiming redundant cables and replacing loads of pit/chambers etc between our exchange and us.
Sadly due to being down for FTTP its very hard to know what's going on due to nothing will appear on roadworks unless some digging is required etc.
Seems that VM is also fobbing me off saying they have fibre in our area and that they will send an engineer round to survey my road and side roads and that the engineer will also pop round to discuss the ins an outs of the install process, I have been told this 4 times now over the last few months.
I will be phoning VM once again to ask what's happening, but I suspect I will get a load of apologies and that they will send an engineer round to survey our area.
We would prefer to go with BT over VM even though with VM we could of had phone, broadband and TV (4 Tivo Boxes etc) all in one package etc, but BT's down and up speeds sold it for us.
