I'm moving to a new build development. Curiously, neighbours are showing on openreach's fibre checkers as being able to get FTTC at speeds of around 50Mbps. When I search on my address, I am offered ADSL only.
I've done a bit of digging and seem to be connected to Bangor exchange, cabinet 80. The postcode is BT19 1HZ. Checking, for example, number 39 shows FTTC available, but checking 45 gives the message that it's connected to a fibre cabinet, but the line might be too long to give superfast speeds. I find this very unlikely, given the speeds available on the same street (and the same cabinet).
I've read other threads where it is suggested that fibre can only be ordered after an initial ADSL order, due to a phone line not being set up at a new build address. Is this likely to be the case? Is there anything I have to do to speed the process along? I'm a bit confused as to how my ADSL installation will transmit data to the checker to allow it to show FTTC as available.
Thanks for any help!
