Just a bit of "reputational backup" Hullabalou47, seeing as you've just joined. (Though you may have been watching for a while of course). From his considerable authoritative posting history you can be certain that witchunt isn't guessing.
Don't start quoting him direct or linking to this thread when chasing any branch of BT/Openreach or your ISP. Just something like that you've been asking around the neighbourhood and found there was a fire but the cabinet got replaced within days which is why everyone but you now has their FTTC working. (I know it sounds like its insides were OK so didn't need replacing, but a re-shelled cabinet looks new).
We don't want a valuable source of such information disappearing from here, the way some earlier ones have, due to being identified.
