There is an old fashioned green cabinet here.

The image is not up to date, it's a recent arrival.

It is not yet accompanied by the newer green cabinet for FTTC.

I used http://bbs.keyhole.com/ubb/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showth...

This can generate a google earth kml of all the postcodes from the PCP data for a given area.

Very nifty.

Received from Virginmedia:

Hi Alex

Thank you for your enquiry regarding Virgin Media providing digital
services at your home.

Unfortunately for us to make this area serviceable with digital services
would be too expensive and would cost more than our current budget
allows, so therefore cannot be considered to be upgraded by our infill
activity at this time.

As we find new ways of serving areas such as this that are outwith the
existing network, we will look at your request further and may be able
to include this in build programmes in future years. However at this
time, we will not be able to provide cable service to this area.

I appreciate this is not good news, but be assured our team have
investigated this and will continue to look for other solutions that may
help us achieve this in the future.

Best regards

Alison

Basically we're doomed. I just signed a new tenency agreement, so if by this time next year I don't have access to a decent broadband, I'll have no other choice but to move, which is a shame since i like the are and the flat where I live now.

I also sent an email to Virgin and got the same response. SInce my last post I have started making a petition for the residents of Rotherhithe to sign. If a lot of people do it I will send to Virgin and see if it does any good.

Where is it to sign your petition? I have been living in Rotherhithe for two years and the internet speed really sucks. Just seen that latest UK average speed it more than 4mb/s, I get only 1.4. Not too sure if any hope later this year for BT infinity neither.

Argh, bermondsey exchange is not getting FTTC until end of 2012 now, it was end of this year a few months ago. What a delay!

Suggest you look again at the dates, all it says is "2012" not "Dec 2012". The latest dates in the "coming soon" spreadsheet are "Mar 2012", so I would read anything in the "future-exchanges" spreadsheet as March 2012 or later.

So no need to despair just yet!

Hi - Resident in Rotherhithe for many years.
My profile is a max of 1500k and over a period of several weeks drops down to 135k, making broadband almost unusable. Problems with exchange is always the answer when I complain and try to get the profile refreshed. BT vary from refreshing profile to trying to send an engineer to review equipment in property (waste of time). The only slight consolation is that I have got a reduction in the monthly fee (I would prefer a decent service). Upgrade date is Dec 2012. Tempus Fugit.
