After years of waiting, delays and date changes to FTTC roll out where I live, it now looks like we are close(!) Workmen have been onsite for the past week installing a new cabinet in the village.
Backstory: The openreach broadband checked had previously gone to "In Build" back to "Exploring Solutions" after they realised (post the supposed "design" and "field survey" phases) that our cabinet was too far out of the village
Exchange: MYRUF - cabinet 3.
Postcode YO26 8LG
My questions are
1) How can I tell when we may be able to order a fibre product?
OpenReach checker just says "in scope"
Magenta Codelook has no additional details
How frequently do these update / which is more accurate etc?
2) Am I right in thinking that ADSL speeds should improve?
ADSL speeds have typically been very poor in the village.. 2mbs for some. Am i right in believing most people should get a boost in speed when the new cabinet comes online, even if they remain on their current ADSL package, as the distance to the cabinet will now be much less?
Any help appreciated.
