Re: Rotherhithe (Zone 2, London)

Hi,

Yes, ADSL in the Rotherhithe area is a disgrace. The maximum speed I can get is 2.0 Mbps, usually is less. I don't understand why Virgin hasn't already invested in cabling this area, with the right promotion they'd probably get almost 100% of the broadband users in the area.

Entering my number in the BT checker returns the same as you, so it's not clear if they ever will offer FTTC into our homes.

Not encouraging, really.

If you are checking via postcode, then that can be wrong as you get a mixture of EO and cabinet lines in the same postcode.

Copy and paste the EXACT wording from https://www.btwholesale.com/includes/adsl/main.html just hiding your telephone number. This will show if connected to a cabinet or not.

If your number is a non BT (or non WLR) one, then use the full ADDRESS checker, not the postcode one.

The BT site now says that work is taken place on my exchange and no orders can be processed. I have tried a number across the road to me and its not available on that line.

That may not stop an FTTC order via a non-BT Wholesale provider of course

Questions to the Mayor from both Val Shawcross and Darren Johnson:

http://questions.london.gov.uk/QuestionSearch/search...

and

http://questions.london.gov.uk/QuestionSearch/search...

The Mayor

The Super Connected Cities Plan (SCCP) is now largely focussed on a demand led voucher scheme to encourage the take up of ultrafast broadband amongst high growth SMEs across all London boroughs including SME's in Rotherhithe area. It will be ensured that SSCP scheme is promoted in Rotherhithe area so that all eligible SME's can participate.

While I understand the frustration that some Rotherhithe constituents experience over the speed of their internet access, currently we are unable to intervene directly in matters relating to residential broadband connectivity.

The GLA will next year be looking to publish a document looking at Long Term Infrastructure in London, which will include a section on broadband and I know my team drafting that section will be looking at the situation in Rotherhithe closely.


Doesn't look like Boris is going anywhere with it.
