I live in rural Cheshire, speeds of 1.5, but last spring openreach dug along our country road laying cables and promising fibre was on its way. They snapped some cables forcing them though the ducting, causing delay, but were back out working again in the autumn, again telling me things were coming soon.
I downloaded a spreadsheet telling me our exchange was going to be enabled Dec 2014. But now, the where and when checker has a big fat "?" instead.
our BDUK,"ConnectingCheshire" said "Aw, sorry, yeah, we're not able to do anything for you, you're not in our plan, like, ever."
We are exchange only, I'm told, and miles away at that.
BT told me to sit tight, they were sure we were included in the rollout and to keep checking the website. I got the impression they were making this up.
I'm never getting it, am I? BUT they dug up my road and laid cable past my front door! For what reason would they do that? Why can't I get fibre if it runs past my door? Aaargh.
exchange is Hampton Heath (WNHAM)
Postcode is SY14 8AD.
does anyone have any insight they could kindly offer, please?
