Although Fibre is available in my area, according to the BT ADSL checker, FTTC is unavailable as my cabinet is full to capacity. Problem is, it's been saying this for well over one year, and each month the availability date just advances to the next month.
What I don't understand is obviously there will be fibre customers who will cancel due to moving out of the area, or other reasons. So clearly this would free up capacity. But how does BT Openreach then allocate the spare capacity? There does not appear to be any sort of waiting list I can join. I have registered my details with BT, and I have never heard anything since. I'm guessing I will only hear from them if a new additional fibre cabinet is installed. So when someone does cancel, who do they allocate the now available slot to? Very interested to hear from experts out there!
I must add my current speed is 0.85 MBs in the new city of Milton Keynes! There are already two fibre cabinets (the big green ones) nearby to my cabinet. But the second one is on the opposite side of the road. I'm guessing both of these are connected to my cabinet unless anybody can advice different.
