I take it its not looking good for botany road? sadly we struggle to get 1.5 meg - I know people in this road who get less than 50k... tbh its amazing that we connect at all considering our attenuation is 65+ so you can imagine how bad it/slow our broadband is!
In reply to a post
if we are not on the list is there anything we can do? we really need some broadband love for once!! =D
It really surprised me when I discovered that Botany Road wasn't included, I have no idea why not, things may have changed since December (when the spreadsheet was leaked). Botany Rd is served from cabinet 21, which I believe is located at the top of your road. The area's either side of Bottany Rd are being done, so it's odd your not, and as you say the uplift in that area is very high, most around 65, but one postcode has a 144 x uplift figure!
As to what you can do, well the only thing I've seen suggested is to get everybody in the road to register their interest on the http://www.bt.com/infinity
website regardless of whether they want it or not.
There is another option, and that is Vfast
, they use Wi-fi and not your phone line, cost is not as cheap as normal braodband, but is comparable to FTTC costs. I have a friend who lives near Westwood Cross, but can't get broadband because his line is on the Manston exchange, and he has been with Vfast for years now.
