Exchange upgrade question


[link to this post]
 
Living in a slow spot here(1408kbps/416kbps) with sky broadband connected to the kings lynn exchange. The question is, this exchange has a june2012 date for bt's fibre upgrade program, do they run fibre to all the street cabinets connected to the exchange or just some of them?
Thanks.

Only to some, the telephone checkers will update to show whether it is available on your line once available.

Also when its live on the exchange there is still a chance that Openreach will come back and enable a missing cabinet later on

Thanks for the info,bearing in mind that the village we live in is quite large and at the end of the line in distance ( some house's 500 yards away are on the neighbouring Terrington exchange and get speeds much faster than here ) would this have any bearing on openreach's works?
Thanks again.

Tossing a coin would give just as a good an answer as we can.

If another exchange is closer than your current exchange they could even run the fibre to your cabinet from this other exchange, the fibre distance can run for many miles without any problem.

post your postcode in the Fibre section of the forum and someone will look up the cabinet info for you.

MaxDSL - goes as fast as it can and doesn't read the line checker first.

I've found out from the Fibre forum that one cabinet in our village will be enabled for fibre but the cabinet i am connected to along with a lot of others houses will not be upgraded. Is there any way to get Openreach to change their mind, has anyone has this problem and been able to convince Openreach to run the fibre a bit further? Both Cabinets are on the main road through the village and about 3/4 mile apart. Any thoughts would be great.

Steve.

Openreach is only going 66% uk coverage, so entitled to role out where they like, show them they can make money on a cabinet, i.e. commitments to buy once enabled, or pay for upgrade.

Me nothing.

Upgrade cost £30 to 40k, gives you fttc from a single cabinet, i.e. vdsl2 services.
