Re: Moving Home - best course of action for broadband?


[re: Aaron_01] [link to this post]
 
In reply to a post by Aaron_01:
Just read today that BT only allow FTTC on their own line rental, does this mean I'm going to have to switch line rental again from IDNet to BT in 2 months time when our exchange gets FTTC?
As XRaySpeX says, but!

A lot of new housing estates are not getting FTTC, at least in the near future. It also depends whether it is possible for it to be connected to an existing cabinet, or whether it might even be supplied direct from the exchnage.

Have you checked FTTC will be available there? Do you have a postcode? (Though even that could be suspect).

Yep, already checked in another thread http://forums.thinkbroadband.com/fibre/t/4110686-re-...

It is a new estate, some houses have had residents since Summer 2011, and it's strange some checkers don't recognise the postcode still. Still yet to find out the cabinet number too.

Have you looked at BT's 'where and when' website? www.superfast-openreach.co.uk/where-and-when

Hi, I put my postcode in there, but it only tells me my exchange is getting FTTC enabled in June 2012, is it supposed to be showing me more than that?

I guess not smile

My exchange is "not currently in rollout plans" frown so I wasn't sure on the detail BT give you.

Does http://www.coolwebhome.co.uk/fibre/checker.php give any more info for the postcode?

Results for Postcode BN27 4AF
There are no results for the supplied postcode
This usually means this postcode is not currently scheduled to receive fibre from Openreach

Suggests that your data has been added to since the December 2011 which is the only data that is public so far.
