Last Friday our exchange started accepting orders which is located in Thirsk (NETI). 4-5 weeks prior to this they installed about 10 or so new cabinets, cabling all at the same time including our cabinet. As far as I can tell, only two out of these cabinets have been enabled so only a small number of homes can get FTTC.
Here are the details for our cabinet:
Today I have noticed that the contracters are putting more cabinets in, at the other side of the town.
Do BT generally just enable a few to test the system, and when it's bedded down enable the rest, or are they enabled in dribs and drabs? It all seems very random, and you would have thought that a timescale could be provided on a town by town basis. I guess I will just have to keep checking to see when it's available, or write a web script to check for me
