On it's way....


[link to this post]
 
A few months back I sent Clive Selley an email about my lack of fibre (attempt number 3). This time I managed to get a personal response from Clive who escalated my query to they Fibre team. To my surprise they looked at it and found it be eligible to be upgraded. So yesterday the ground work began...

Cabinets 49 and 51 (same small style PCP are also being upgraded)

Codelook still shows Oct 2018 as a completion data

But emails from Openreach were initially stating before the end of this year, but change freezes are in place with the holidays etc. To be honest I didn't expect it to move so quick, but glad it is. Thanks Openreach smile

I came across his email address a while ago on here and done the exact same thing, he passed to another team (after i got a response from him) and here we are about to get FTTP going live before crimbo, despite the fact that a few people have told me it would not happen, i am fed up we had to wait so long but at least were getting there, just a shame it will cost so much but i'm sure price will drop over the next couple of years (hopefully)

Seems things have changed - the fibre cab has been installed, but the old small PCP has been replaced by a larger double door type.

Ditto my reply from him has moved things on for me too, just had my ONT installed, well i think it's called that it's the router and battery back up and should be able to order by midweek, so it seems if you are able to get a reply from Clive it sure does move things along at some speed.

Good to hear yours is going well.

Oddly for our area the other small cabinets haven't been reshelled like mine. Hopefully it'll mean G-fast compatibility in the future.

That must be painful for him.

Iíve been impressed with the amount of people working on my cab, had two there yesterday putting cabling in to the Fibre cab and one today connecting things up. I know weíve had a couple of snow days but I didnít expect them to play catch-up on the weekend.

Also looks as if the electrics have been plugged in now. Just needs filling in I guess now.
