FTTC gone from wholesale checker - yet I already have fibre?


[link to this post]
 
Anyone have an explanation on this one?

I am currently on FTTC (Sky 40/10) and have been for almost a year now when my cabinet went live. I read about how BT have changed their wholesale checker and went to take a look and noticed that the entry for FTTC now read it will be available on January 22nd (today).

Just checked it again today and any mention of FTTC has completely vanished! (this also includes various ISP's own availability checkers).

What would cause FTTC to suddenly not be available? Could it be the cabinet is full or something else?

Again, I am already on fibre and have been for almost a year now since my cabinet became live last April, but am just wondering why FTTC has been removed from online checkers.

Thanks.

If this is by telephone number, it may be because BT Wholesale have no visibility of the phone line, what does the address checker say?

Most ISP checkers are based on the BT Wholesale one, Sky and TalkTalk should reflect their situation obviously

This is using the address checker, it doesn't say anything for phone number.

My point is that it used to give fibre information and has done for almost a year, just wondering why they would remove that information if the cabinet has been enabled for some time.

It is possible the cabinet is full and thus not accepting orders until a new one, or more line cards are added

Just checked it this morning and it now states FTTC will be available again on 05-Feb-13.

God knows what they are upto. Mind you this area is pathetic for plain old ADSL as the exchange is a good few miles away, so I guess the take up for FTTC on my cabinet might be quite high.
