Wakefield !!!

I am surprised why WAKEFIELD exchange isnt fibre activated!!
Also there is no plans in the immediate future apparently as per roll out plans..

The surrounding exchanges have fibre optic broadband....So any ideas why Wakefield is being ignored ??

Wakefield is down as Coming Soon 'December 2013' on the Openreach where and when website, not being ignored just one of the last to be enabled.

but don't get carried away. it takes about 3 weeks for it to show on the checker that's if A you get a cab and B you are in the right area.

We had fibre activated start of September and first orders went in 27th September. Some like me didn't get a cab and some have one but won't get the service until 2014!

Always check the days to the right when you do that dsl checker. Having it there sometimes means jack.

It's now scheduled for March 2014 - thought you might like to know if you're still house hunting. Just don't consider moving to Kirthorpe, we're at the end of a very long line (via Normanton) and will be relying on BDUK funding to get us above 2Mbps. Although, it is nice and quiet smile
