It's now the 30th June which is the date our exchange is listed to go live on the BT site:
This is about right as the councilor who petitioned to get the roll out for our estate was originally told end of March 2011 and then that was pushed back to 30th September 2011 due to the bad weather.
The FTTC cabinets were installed at the beginning of last week and I spoke to a BT Openreach engineer working on one of them yesterday and he said they were working to fix a blockage in the fibre "spine" which comes from the exchange, but that could be solved that day and the cabinet he was working on should be completed by the end of the day. That wasn't my cabinet but you would assume they would be working around them.
I found this link on Google:
This shows my postcode as on the cabinet about 200m away (which now has a FTTC cabinet next to it) and shows:
Percent Lines: 100
However, both the BT Infinity and BT Openreach checkers show no availability of FTTC and the Infinity checker actually says:
BT Infinity is not currently due to be rolled out in your area within the next 6 months. Register your interest and we will keep you up to date about the BT Infinity rollout.
@infinityfibre on Twitter who are a BT partner and claim to have access to Openreach systems also say there are no plans to roll out in our area - which is clearly wrong as they are installing the cabinets and BT Openreach engineers working on it.
Anyone else experienced anything similar?
How often do the checkers get updated?
As far as I see it at the moment, it looks like the cabinets will be live and ready in the next few weeks but no one will be able to orders because the system says no.
