After much pressure from the Residents' Association, Catherington has had two new FTTC cabinets installed.
I'm chairman of the Residents' Association and am facing frequent questions about the time scale.
There are two new Huawei cabinets in Catherington adjacent to cabs. 10 & E1 - both installed in the same week in June this year
BT OR Website says:-
For cab 10 "...You can't order a fibre service today, but typically it will be available to your premises within the next month"
For cab.E1 .....“Great news, you can order a fibre service. Check with one of these service providers to see if they are offering fibre in your area.”....
Typical questions are:-
Cab E1 was available for sign up within days of the new cabinet being installed, cab 10 installed at the same time is still not accepting orders, why is this?
How long is it likely to be before FTTC can be connected to my home/business?
In this respect, Hampshire SFB on their website say:-
"Some properties in this postcode will be upgraded to fibre broadband between January 2017 and December 2017."
Is it really going to take between 6 & 18 months, after accepting orders in the case of cab E1, for FTTC to be made available?
