256 additional C&W LLU exchanges from May 2010 - Part 2


[link to this post]
 
This follows on from part 1. Could someone please tell me how many (if any) exchanges from the list below have been activated so far? My exchange (Inverness Culloden) is scheduled to be activated next month so trying to work out whether I should get excited or not!
Cheers smile

[re: baby_frogmella] [link to this post]
 
I'm on ABERDEENBALGOWNIE NSBLG Aug-10 GREEN and recently asked a C&W reseller about the situation. They said apart from the original announcement from C&W about the extra exchanges being unbundled news had "dried up" and apparently none of the work has actually been done.

Re: 256 additional C&W LLU exchanges from May 2010 - Part 2


[re: diggsy] [link to this post]
 
TBH I think it was rather foolish of James to announce the 256 back in April without knowing any more detailed, accurate and positive information. All there seems to be now is FUD.

Of the original 256, I see that Aberconwy (WNABC) has disappeared off the radar and I've accepted now that it will probably never happen. The options I have at present are TT LLU (no thanks) or BT20CN / ADSL1 for the next few years.

[re: Gari] [link to this post]
 
I kinda feel the same way. Im stuck on the Woburn Sands exchange (BT control it not me), and without moving house, LLU/FTTC are the only ways Im likely to see any improvements in line stability/speed increases, and its been very frustrating to see that flagged as a site to go LLU live, only for it then to drop off the map.
It may be a relatively small exchange with only a few thousand users, but there are quite a few local businesses in the area also on the same exchange, so Im sure Im not the only one who'd take up an LLU/more advanced proposal than ADSL1 pretty sharpish.

Unfortunately without more proactive work from contending parties, BT is slow to pick up the slack to prevent us lagging behind the rest of populated europe in this area; and the LLU providers seem to have stagnated a bit now they've hit thier popular exchanges.
Doesn't put much hope out there for providing decent quality, stable multiple meg broadband for the whole country in the near future.

I'm gonna go with Xilo and hope this is still on the go - http://community.xilo.net/broadband/848-cpw-opal-bro... . Might have been a trial of some sort but it's better than nothing ie. only TT LLU available on my exchange. Quite happy to wait a while before Xilo offer it to all customers, probably not as long a wait than for C&W.

So is it likely that the Aug 10 for go green on my exchange (Dumfries) actually happened?

It's a bit frustrating that it is so hard to get proper information, you get your hopes up for upgrades like the 21cn but then it just goes quiet when the go green date is hit.

Mainly because C&W are being very quiet.
