BT Openreach know which Cab you are on, but as any number can be on any Cab in the exchange this must be recorded against the phone number.

The data file size would thus be immense and if any leaked it would be a serious breach of the Data protection act as it would count as personal Data, thus a sackable offense and a court case.

Action has previously been taken against ISPs who have 'leaked' the Cabinet data breaking their confidentialty agreements, so I suspect may have been / is being taken now from the Anon posters comments.

As the cab data gets older it is likely to be less accurate as some cabs will prove problematical to do and others will be added, so will end up misleading people. I think that the present set will 'time out' by the end of March and we will see people 'complaining' that it does not reflect the situation on their lines.

There was a disclaimer at the end of the files saying that any of the data could change.

That statement is complete and utter nonsense.

Your telephone number is personal data and as such is covered by the Data protection act.

Any leak of data is therefore a breach. Especially as a number would be ex directory numbers.

Oh ok, that's odd as my checker is supposed to notice if the BTw checker lists a date for fibre.
Do you have more than one cabinet serving your postcode? I probably left it out because there's no way to tell which cabinet the date is for.

I'll take a look later anyway when I add the link back to the mouselike page smile

1) - It doesn't have phone numbers.

2) - Believe it or not, a phone number is only covered by the Data Protection Act if you live alone. ie: you can be identified.

I've lucked out! Kind of.

Data found:

Exchange: Fraddon

Recorded Line Length (from exchange): 187m
Estimated Attenuation (on ADSL): 3dB

You are connected directly to the exchange. Exchange Only lines are currently unable to receive Fibre Technology.

First prize for being closest to the exchange, but no fibre for me.... Roll on FTTP and 300mbit!

You could surely get the full 25mbps sync and 3mbps upload sync?

Market 1 exchange no LLU or WBC so limited to 8128Kbps sync, best throughput of around 7Mbps.

Which should support all the streamed TV services that are live in the UK.

Samknows reckons 21CN by July , and its got an FTTC date of March!

The real problem is that the area covered is very small:

1,625 residential premises
129 non-residential premises.

James - be* pro - on THFB - sync about 17.2mbps - BQM
