FTTC "Waiting List" - Full Capacity


[link to this post]
 
I believe the capacity of my cabinet is full, but how do I actually get on this "Waiting list"?

FTTC Range A (Clean) 75.3 57.6 20 18.5 -- Waiting list
FTTC Range B (Impacted) 60 32.4 20 8.5 -- Waiting list
WBC ADSL 2+ Up to 6.5 -- 3 to 8 Capacity expected 01 September 2016
WBC ADSL 2+ Annex M Up to 6.5 Up to 1 3 to 8 Capacity expected 01 September 2016
ADSL Max Up to 5 -- 3.5 to 7.5 Available
Fixed Rate 2 -- -- Available
Other Offerings
FTTP on Demand 330 30 -- Available
Fibre Multicast -- -- -- Available
Copper Multicast -- -- -- Available

BT said capacity is expected in June, and that I can't place an order until there is capacity.
Zen said capacity is expected in September, and that I can't place an order until there is capacity.
Sky just said "no".

Any way to find out more info?

I recommend you set up a page watcher as detailed here http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/fibre/t/4313768-how... although I believe the version number has changed now. I use 41

Thanks, I'd actually already come across that post when I searched and have set up a checker. Very handy!

Hopefully, you changed the version to 41

What frequency did you choose?

Yep, did that. As noticed it doesn't display FTTC if you leave it at 29.

Frequency?

How often to do the check - daily, hourly?

I was recently in the same situation and the checker finally came up with availability. The order went in and the checker went back to "waiting list" within a couple of hours.

Ah, that's interesting to hear. I was going to ask if the checker would simply go to "Available" if one person cancelled their account. Sounds like that's the case then. Will have to keep an even closer eye on it.

Oh, if I change the version from 41 to 29, the FTTC parts disappear: http://spdr.me/10Yin
