Openreach FTTC checker


[link to this post]
 
Looks like Openreach Where and When has been updated, can now select the house and also enter a telephone number!

And is useless!

I put in my two numbers in Scotland and get:

Exchange name: Rrrrrr

Superfast Fibre is in your area but we can't tell by your postcode/number if you can get it right now. Please contact your communications provider, who can check using your phone number.


If I put in the postcode and select any of the six addresses it comes back with:

Exchange name: Rrrrrr
Status: Accepting orders

Great news. Superfast Fibre is in your area and your cabinet is enabled and accepting orders. Contact your preferred communications provider for your home or business to order.


The Standard BT DSL checker tells me NO. And I know they are all EO lines - so how can it be "accepting orders". The postcode and those adjoining are all EO - and a majority of the exchange is such too.

That's a shame, it actually worked for me. It's definately an improvement but does need more work to make it accurate.

Mine is the same, DSL checker says Jun-15, When and Where says:

Exchange name: Hoyland
Status: Accepting orders

An improvement but they have removed the exchange spreadsheets, now only the accepting orders one is available.

I wanted to check and see if an exchange that is now enabled was down for FTTC & FTTP still. But it's not yet made it onto the accepting orders list...

The others are still available, but aren't linked from the W+W page.

Try following the URL for the "accepting_orders.pdf", and then manually substitute "coming_soon.pdf", "future_exchanges.pdf" or "under_evaluation.pdf"

Unfortunately they are slightly out of date, maybe they are being updated?

Still rubbish! Never metion of how fast your cabinet speed. Use this one instead as this one will tell u the cabinet speed: http://connectingshropshire.co.uk/when-and-where/

Openreach is ought to be ashamed themselves! They probably don't want to tell u what the cabinet speed is!

Looks very similar to the new Openreach one!

Phone number check says 51Mb
Postcode check says 60Mb

So not perfect either
