If you do walk into the exchange, ask them when they are going to switch on P18 please smile

Your cabinet will be done, it's in the Spreadsheet, so it's just a matter of when, but it should be soon.

This is on Elgin:

24/02/2012 to 28/02/2012 (estimated) CLR 2BLKGS IN F.W BTWN O/S 70 TO O/S 74 ST PETERS ROAD WP2) clr 2 BLKGS IN C.W AT JCN SOWELL STREET AND ST PETERS ROAD


Which looks exactly like the route the fibre cables will take from the exchange, so my guess is once they've cleared this thay may then install your cabinet.

v. de·ployed, de·ploy·ing, de·ploys
v.tr.
1.
a. To position (troops) in readiness for combat, as along a front or line.
b. To bring (forces or material) into action.
c. To base (a weapons system) in the field.
2. To distribute (persons or forces) systematically or strategically.
3. To put into use or action.

Which to me would mean that the FTTC cabinets have already been installed, but perhaps in BT terms it actually means the work has been approved.

Bit worrying if your cable is joined with tape, if it's before your master socket it's down to BT (although they may have something to say about how it got like it, and may charge you), if it's after your master socket it's your responsibility and BT will charge you to fix it.

Can't tell you when it will be enabled, but I can tell you that according to the leaked spreadsheet it is scheduled to be installed at some point very soon. The Thanet area exchanges have a Ready For Service date of 1/03/2012, but that's only a guide date for any cabinets already installed - checked mine last night and it doesn't seem to be humming, which would suggest it's not yet powered up.

Your details from the spreadsheet:

SAU_ID Name Postcode SAU_NODE_ID Exchange Only Flag Percent Lines Uplift Phase Deployed FTTC or FTTP


NDRAM RAMSGATE CT119NH {NDRAM}{P13} 0 51% 3.31 8a Yes FTTC
NDRAM RAMSGATE CT119NH {NDRAM}{P40} 0 48% 3.03 8a Yes FTTC

Your postcode is served by two cabinets P13 & P14, have a look around your area and see if you can find the cabinets, they should be numbered (mine was marked in chalk!), then see if there's a new green cabinet near it. Unless you can follow your telephone cable only BT knows which cabinet serves you. Uplift is the improvement in broadbands speed they expect you to see, so you should get at least 3 times what your getting, but if your around 400m or closer to your cabinet you should get the full 40mb speeds from other results I've seen on the forums.

Edit:Just looked on Streetview P13 is by the roundabout - I passed there yesterday, don't think there's a new cabinet, but pretty sure the pavement was being dug up by the lamp post.

Confirmed it's BT on Elgin

As I understand it BT will need to apply for a work permit, and this will show up on Elgin when they do.

You can set it up to email you when results come up in a defined area.
