When is my cab' updated if missed initially : WSSTE Cab14


[link to this post]
 
Just after we moved into our new house, everyone in the street got fibre broadband but alas as we signed up for broadband we were advised we could not receive anything other than 1.5MB.

We are at the end of the street and fibre cables were being laid down the street as our house was being built but seem to have passed us by. Digital Scotland advised because we were built after 2012 we were not in the plans at that time.

Our whole area in now enabled STEPPS (WSSTE) but we are cabinet 14.

We have been advised cannot order right now as it hasn't been upgraded yet.
IS there any way of finding out when it will be done?

The houses less than 50m up the street get 40-80MB but they are in a different cabinet.

Apparently 4 cabinets or maybe 5 serve our street. I see this on another site I visit, the FTTC seems to be our neighbour getting their fibre but P14 is close to what I believe our cabinet number is 14 but no dates.

our street, Stepps, Glasgow, Lanarkshire 2,775m P14 16%
our street, Stepps, Glasgow, Lanarkshire 2,775m FTTC Available P2 16%
our street, Stepps, Glasgow, Lanarkshire 2,775m FTTC Available P9 83%
our street, Stepps, Glasgow, Lanarkshire 2,775m Exchange 18 30%


Is there any way of finding out when cabinet 14 WSSTE will be enabled and if FFTC or FFTP

checking where and when and digital Scotland every few days isn't fun. smile

Thanks in advance,

Cabinet 14 appears to be marked down for "FTTP Planned". I'm not sure if it's part of your local BDUK project, but from the information I checked it isn't (this data is slightly outdated - check their website with your postcode for more info). There appears to be no dates listed for when this installation will be completed.

Ribble has a remarkable history of being right, with up-to-date information wink.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

thanks for the info guys...disappointing to hear but thanks.
BDUK said by 2017 the previously agreed would be updated but I was hoping quicker as it was already agreed...alas...not.

thanks again.
