I am actually on Rotherhithe street, it is gonna benefit from FTTC?
If you are the same Anonymous poster who is on an Exchange Only (EO) line then, no, you will not benefit from FTTC as this requires you to be connected to the exchange via a local cabinet rather than directly to the exchange.


I see, was just to check if there is any slim hope. Hope UK moblie companies will have a good unlimeted LTE package later.

I did a quick bit of analysis on the December 2011 spreadsheet. It seems that for the Bermondsey exchange it lists 2436 postcodes, and of those 1549 are marked as Exchange Only lines. So chances are we won't see any sort of fibre for quite some time.

Someone once mentioned to me that you used to be able to get BT to install "low loss lines" which would help in line quality and broadband speed since they won't be cheap aluminium cables. Is this still the case?

I dumped the postcodes of EO postcodes on the CLBER (Bermondsey) into batchgeo and created this map.

In addition to my map above of FTTC not spot postcodes in SE16. Here is an FTTC availability checker.

Here is a map of the CLBER postcodes that do have cabinets.

If you get both maps up at the same scale and toggle between them, broadly postcodes below Southwark Park / Lower Road are connected via cabinets and above are not. These are also the ones near the exchange and have better speeds now. So maybe FTTC will be deployed below park (along lower road) and then FTTP above. Or maybe they just won't bother in 'the loop'.

Mine says

CLBER,BERMONDSEY,SE167DE,{CLBER}{P38},0,100%,,,,

Does this mean no fibre, Looks that way to me apart from the p38 bit?

Makes sense really for BT, how many people in a southwark estate are going to pay extra for fibre. I would, and maybe a few others.

It means that 100% of the lines at postcode SE16 7DE are connected to cab 38 on the Bermondsey exchange. It also unfortunately means that when the leaked December 2011 spreadsheet was created BT had no plans to enable cab 38.

That batchgeo site is quite interesting, good work there!

I was doing some more looking and discovered that a company called UK Broadband and Huawei have been doing a rollout of an LTE network (known as 4G mobile) in Southwark.
http://www.betterbankside.co.uk/news/2911-next-gener...

I dropped an email to the contact on there who replied saying
"The service is due to launch on October 1st as Now Broadband"


I looked them up, http://www.mynow.co.uk/product-plans.php and it seems the max speed is a paltry 1mbps. Though it does mean you can ditch the phone line, considering its an LTE network I was hoping for better speeds than that

Since it is a local trial I don't find it particularly surprising that Now Broadband make no reference to it as an available service on their web site. I strongly suspect the attainable speeds will be significantly in excess of 1Mbps, or at least I hope so.
