Fibre exchange, BT Wholesale Broadband Availability Checker


[link to this post]
 
The BT Wholesale Broadband Availability Checker tells you the exchange that your phone line is connected to and the cabinet, but it does not tell you the exchange that the fibre(s) from your cabinet go to.

Should it tell you this information?

Why do you need to know the headend exchange?

See what ISPs such as Sky and Talk Talk have equipment there.

If you can order from them, they have. Simple.

SamKnows does not tell me the exchange that has the equipment that the fibres from a cabinet are connected to.

Openreach have spreadsheets with that info. They were leaked two or three times as updates occurred in the early days of FTTC rollout. Several of us probably still have them, but they are now years out of date.

Each source of the leaks seemed to disappear. Openreach clearly did not want the information public. Whether the leakers lost their jobs or not I have no idea.

It is understandable that if OR don't want some of the data public that it doesn't appear on the BT Wholesale speed estimates site.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - AAISP Home::1 80/20. 200GB. Sync 75808/13984Kbps @ 600m. BQMs - IPv4 & IPv6

Openreach doesn't publish who has what, where.

Hi Michael,

Interesting question. I take it you are connected to an exchange that serves a relatively small number of properties?

I would guess the fibre would go to the tier 1 exchange serving your exchange.

Would you be able to order from the tier 1 exchange if you knew it? Other than if you were to pay the construction costs.

What I mean is, as far as I know if you use the automated order systems. You can only order what shows as available on the checker at your exchange, not the exchange the the fibre is routed to.

Do you know another way? Please share.

Brian

Yes

I am told it goes to an exchange some way away.

In general I can only place an order with an ISP who says they will supply a particular service on my line.
