I take it as my exchange cuckoo oak will never get a chance to get FTTC by 2014, never will. BT only enabled ADSL2+ but I just wish FTTC than ADSL2+.

Any thoughts on those exchanges with no planned FTTx date published?


My thoughts are that Openreach will rush to 2/3rds as soon as possible as altco platforms don't want to rollout and compete with Openreach. So Openreach will want to get amongst the viable areas as soon as possible and leave altcos cold.

Then Openreach will be looking to hoover up final third money on the back of their experience, efficiency and number of providers signed up to the platform.

I have yet to see any rollout plans from altcos and the viable areas are shrinking daily.

Market 3, accessible village. Population of less than 5000, less than 3000 residential premises and less than 100 commercial properties. However, I get 6.5 Meg and healthy pings. I will probably get 12-14 Meg on ADSL2+

Why aren't you already on ADSL2+ on LLU? I have probably seen an explanation long ago, but forgotten.

...that's what I'd like to know!

There's VM in some areas (why not all, I don't know), and Talk Talk (CPW) RFS date of 06/01/2012. I assume because there are other towns and villages nearby with more population/commerce, although they haven't been 21CN'ed yet either. Basically, I have a feeling that unless you're a City or place of affluent housing in Scotland, you're not likely to get upgraded.

(Lossiemouth is prolly the airbase, as already mentioned)

any stats on rural/urban spread?

this rollout looks much higher rural than the initial adsl rollout.

I believe a lot of exchanges here in N.Ireland aren't on 21CN/WBC (which I believe is necessary for ADSL2+)

But just about all exchanges here have FTTC in some/all areas. So i'm sure it's possible.

The point of handover for FTTC/P does not have to be the local exchange, it can be one many miles away

It cant just be cities and areas with large populations that is getting 21CN WBC, as I stated earlier Hopeman has just had there exchange upgraded, and they are right next to Lossiemouth, and probably dont even have a third of the population Lossiemouth has.

I thought that possibly with the RAF Base closing, that may be the reason why BT did no upgrade the exchange. But now that the Lossiemouth RAF base is staying open(and will be the only one in Scotland), with it being one of the biggest Air Bases in Britain, I presumed BT would want to upgrade that now???

The reversal in base closure may have come too late for currently released plans...who knows it might be on future roll-out.

Until Openreach say that a batch of cabinets is the last from the commercial roll-out there is always scope for infill/additions
