Re: ADSL to FTTC regrade overdue now

This is getting tiresome, I actually spoke of cabinet positions shown on the map that are based on the postcode so are not the true location of the cabinet and it is of no relevance to the OP's thread so I'll leave it there.

~~ UPDATE ~~

It seems Openreach's database has finally updated itself to reflect the work which was carried out in order to facilitate the provisioning of my FTTC, last week (17th of April 2018):

If you compare that to the old results, captured on the 16th of April 2018, you'll see the change. Here's the old result:

Weirdness:

When I enter my number into BTW checker, it says Cabinet 3 FTTC "Available". However, when I enter *any* of my immediate neighbour's phone numbers (they're all literally tens of feet away from us) into the checker, it comes back "Cabinet 3 - planned".

If I'm a member of the public and find this inconsistent and confusing, I can only imagine how confused the people *doing the provision* are...

Do these neighbours have BB hosted on BTw landlines? N.B. This excludes mainly Sky, TT & VM.

Presumably they do as you used the phone no. checker & not the address checker, didn't you?

There's no other line provider *except* BTw out here in these old sticks (and hasn't been since 1982 when I moved here, afaik) as we're non-LLU (I think I am right in thinking that is the part which makes the difference... right?) - we're a medium sized village, there's nowt but ADSL and - now - FTTC out here, and I've never known anyone to have a NON-BTw line (BTw line sold as a product of another ISP.)

I know, for one, that the neighbour most annoyed with their ISP about being given the FTTC brush-off is with BT themselves, and she's literally 20 seconds walk away, a few tens of feet from me. Another friend (again, feet away) told me tonight that their next door neighbour was SO fed up with BT's cock and bull stories, they've taken up FTTC with Vodafone, and are scheduled for connection "next week" (pah, we shall see, haha!)

I'm in the process of collating info and compiling some form of graphical "info sheet" which I'll be posting to the neighbouring streets, once I have said info checked and made CRYSTAL CLEAR (and I know how aggravating it is to have things explained in layman's terms when most people are just average 9-5, 2.1 children families - they don't care about this hoopla - they just want SPEED, and if the Jones' have fibre, they want it!)

Anywho, BT need to step up their game a LOT, what a bunch they are! ^_^
