I get 5Mbps ADSL, next door gets 330Mbps!


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I'm currently am on ADSL with a max 5mb down .2 up because my local cabinet at Kidbrooke PCP 2 seems like it's never gonna be upgraded. But, while I wait, a new housing development has been built next to me with what I think is Fibre to the Home.

I went to the open day and looked under the stairs of the show house.
Here's a pic of what i saw.

If that's what I think it is, then 20m from my house they get 330Mbps and I get 5. That's one hell of a digital divide!

I've asked BT to run fibre to me but hey don't want to know. I can't even get FTTC!!

Can anyone find out the latest upgrade information for my cabinet?

Will be dependent on the amount of commercial expansion in the area, as London Boroughs were not part of the phase 1 and phase 2 gap funding projects.

What is the postcode for the show home?

Their phone lines will probably be on a different cabinet than yours.
Cabinet 2 is down as part of the LEP Phase, not too sure what LEP is.

What's the post code and door number of the home that can get FTTP?

London Extension Programme, i.e. the recent commercial amounts announced for various parts of London.

Yeah that is definitely Openreach FTTP in your picture.

You'll get at least FTTC in the next couple of years, they'll have to for you to meet the new 10Mb minimum.

if that is a "show home" why does the wiring look like a birds nest, you think the installer would have at least made some sort of effort to tidy it up

The development is called "The Brackens"

The address of the show home should be:

1 Hill View Drive
Welling
Kent
DA16 3RS

The weird thing is I don't see any new cabinet anywhere, not for FTTC or FTTH!

Thanks for any information

So, it's just one long run of fibre from the exchange to the house under the street?
