[link to this post]
i live in bovey tracey ,devon.
we should be getting fibre installed and running by the end of this month( according to bts own webpages.)
naturally, i want to know the start date.
but bt won't I've me one!
with only two weeks to go, they will not release one.
according to them, because of "competition"
how can i find out when we will be on fibre?

Are the cabinets stood and powered?

You have a fair few cabinets on the exchange, as one number was connected to cabinet 13 and no sign of FTTC.

Where and When does Forecast September 2013, but then forecast is a future looking phrase, rather than we absolutely promise.

1. Until cabinets are stood next to existing ones
2. shows availability for a phone number I would not get too excited.

As the person on the ground, it should be easy enough to spot and track progress for the cabinets.

If this is roll-out as part of the commercial project, then BT are within rights to not release exact information on the project progress. has no information on telecoms work, which is usually a good indicator of what is happening.

You say you are expecting FTTP. Is that correct, or are you expecting FTTC with an option for FTTPoD? In which case an extra £120 over FTTC doesn't sound realistic.

FTTP and FTTPoD are not fed from the green cabinets. Only FTTC is.

If it is FTTPoD you are asking BT about, then it's no surprise they aren't giving dates. Is BDUK involved?

Incidentally, there is a Fibre Broadband forum on this site. Your next thread would probably be more suited to that one smile.
