Not a lot of use these days Max, in my opinion.

All it does is centralise what we already have, and in a less good way.

Option 1 just runs the BT Wholesale Performance test then the Further Diagnostics but only returns the down and up IP Profiles. It also prevents you doing the same for several minutes. Twenty I think these days, not the few hours it states - which used to be the case. If I'm going to do that I'd rather see the speed test results as well.

Option 2 simply invokes the standard BT Wholesale checker with the Postcode submitted into the address option. Which gives a drop-down list.

Option 3 simply invokes the standard BT Wholesale checker using the phone number option.

Note the footnote on the page wink.

It gives the fibre cabinet location which I don't think I've seen anywhere else.

That's if it works LOL.
I enter in my postcode and I get the following:

Exchange Status: nodata
Text:

PCP: P
Exchange:
Exchange OLO code: (Exchange data not found! ADMIN ALERTED. Check again in a few days.)

It use to work, but where our post code is split over two cabinets it always displayed the other cabinet and never ours.
Now it cannot even find our exchange from our postcode tongue

Apart from that, it was rather close to where the cabinets when I did do other areas.

It's quite handy for my area to find out where some of the cabs are hidden.

Current on Zen, getting around 5mb down - .8mb up
Exchange is Fibre enabled, Cab not economically viable to upgrade - though 'Now Exploring Solutions aka we want someone else to pay for it.'

Perhaps, perhaps not.

Options 2 and 3 use the BT Openreach checker rather than the BT Wholesale one from what I can tell.
