Re: Changed RFS date (31st March to 16th Feb)

In reply to a post by Spasch:
the only site that can be definitively believed, regarding FTTC go live dates, is the BT Wholesale checker. All the ISPs get their information from this DB.
Even that's only more-or-less true... last August I put my number into my ISP's checker and it said I could have FTTC. So I said "Yes please" and the order went though, installed about 10 days later on the 24th Aug.

The BT checker was still saying 30th September... crazy

Right little bit more progress.

The bad bit first, picked up my package from the post office on Friday, NOT a V3 as I was promised frown

Called them and they are sending out a V3 today, and I get to keep the V2 as a doorstop.... er I mean spare.

The good bit; line was moved over on friday without any hassle, and they have kept my original number.

Dawn from BT phoned me as promised on saturday to arrange FON that I can access from my little boys bedroom windowsill (not a great deal of use but at least they did as they said).

Was then called to arrange infinity order that is being done next monday.

It's a week without broadband, but it could be worse.

I mean the ones near me. In Walton they all went in around November and there hasn't been any work for several weeks now, yet only one of them is live.


Date for my cab has now been put back to 30th June. What are BT playing at? Houses just 500m away from me can order FTTC now, along with a lot of Chesterfield.

ONLINE!!!!

So far I am pretty much stoked, it's very early days only an hour or two in but

http://www.speedtest.net/result/1201599347.png

37Mb when I was estimated 25Mb is pretty damn impressive.

Engineer said sync was 40/10

Nice guy actually shifted my master socket to a better position.

Sam now says I can get it but BT doesn't! Whats a good site to check with Bill?

Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.

Good question frown

BT said I couldn't get it for another 6 weeks (didn't check SamKnows), but I thought "What the hell..." and tried to order it online from my ISP. The order went through as sweet as you like.

But the "online" bit seems to be important- someone else (same ISP) tried to order by phone and was told it wasn't available yet. So he tried online and it went through crazy

BT appear to have (at least) two databases which don't keep very good sync. Best I can suggest is to try and order it online and see what happens.

The BT wholesale checker is the only one worth paying attention to, all the ISP's take the results from that when you put your phone number in on their website.

Sam knows says I can get FTTC now, but I can't. My cab has just changed to 30th June.

Nice one, good to see someone online in Chesterfield! Do you know how far away you are from your cabinet? Seems a good sync when you were estimated only 25meg.

Could you post a result from pingtest.net please, I'm curious to see what that's like. I know the result you posted has a ping on it, but it's usually lower on pingtest.net.
