Until infrastructure is actually delivered and live anything is just plans and plans can and do change. The intention may be to do something but if things go wrong then they may pull the plug.
Well I was finally told when I asked if VM had plans in the near future to install in our area, and I was told defiantly not in the next 5 to 10 years.
I hope that BT deliver but it is quite possible at this stage in July that things may well change and be put back further.
Well we have had all the hardware and funny enough all of the actual fibre cables since Oct - Dec 2011, only that we had a broken fibre cable which was the only reason why we never got it back then.
This broken fibre originally consisting of 40 (possibly 48) odd strands has now been replaced with either a 70 (possibly 72) or 90 (possibly 96) odd strands one and that was done a few weeks ago, the last fibre engineer from BTOR said this last bit of work was the last bit and all we have to do is wait for the database to be updated to live before we can order it.
I emailed Openreach a few times now about status updates and I have been told that its still down as being scheduled for end of July, even though all the work has already been done, so I guess that the end of July is when loads of fibre install might go live then.
The same happens in many industries - if the thing isn't built yet then things can be delayed - installed fixed line telecoms is a minefield and can be affected by many issues - a lot of which are out of the direct control of the provider.
Oh I understand that, but VM kept fobbing me off month after month even though I blatantly told them that there is no installed cabinets down our road where they then said that's fine and that their cabling is in our area and that they would send an engineer round to see where the cabinets can be placed and then one month later I am then told sorry they are not in my area and then the same thing over and over again over several months, and each time this info was entered onto their system, that's what really annoyed me, it also seems that they have no clue where their sodding cables are placed, sorry if I sound rude, but it really annoyed me.
