FTTC Over Subscribed


[link to this post]
 
Morning, is it possible for anyone to check as to when BT will begin taking orders for the area where I'm moving to? Only recently FTTC got provisioned however the checker is saying that it's not taking any more orders.

Anyone able to give accurate time scales as to when I can order, as I don't fancy 1.5mbps download smile

The cabinet is full to capacity. Unless another is built. You will have to wait for a port to become free , that is, for someone to cease their fttc.

Grrr not the news I wanted to hear! Really not looking forward to going back to 1.5mbps down.

Does this mean that I could try another provider other than BT who may have a certain percentage of ports within the cabinet?

No. ISP's aren't allocated ports. It's a first come first served system.

But the address you are going to could have fttc and when they cease it down that frees a port as long as there is no one else in the queue.

The OP want's too make surer they place an order for a line migration 'if there is an active vdsl line' chances are it will disappear very quickly if sent back into the wild.

Agreed, but they don't have the pone line, the chances are the current occupier will place a cease on it, and even if the OP is on great terms with the current occupier most name changes on the PSTN will cause a stop and start of the PSTN and that will cease the dsl.

could they not keep it in the same name with a different provider ? as the bill payer doesn't have to be the named subscriber surely, ?
