Re: Fibre in Helston Cornwall


[re: ccxo] [link to this post]
 
Thanks for the good news.

The when isn't as important to me, so long as I know it's coming.
Living in a block of flats I wasn't sure what to expect.
To be honest, at best I expected FTTC, as I thought it would be easier/cheaper for them to just hook up our cabinet, and boom, the whole block is connected.

If I'll really be on an FTTP line by the end of the year though, I'll be delighted.

I'm still on a standard ADSL MAX line at the moment, so that's going to be a real step up!

Thanks for the info, and the very prompt reply.
Cheers,
Vin.

EDIT: and thanks for the tip about the spreadsheet. Found a copy and searched a few postcodes of friends and family. All showed FTTP, except for one which only showed FTTC, although strangely theirs is also the number I checked, which shows FTTP available right now, proving again that this spreadsheet is out of date, and isn't necessarily 100% accurate. Nice to have some idea though.

FTTP and FTTC have been swaped for some postcodes, also with the spreadsheet being 4 months old now alot of things can change in this time.

I'm not sure he will get FTTP in a block of flats. What do you reckon?

Out of interest, anybody reading in Helston who's been hooked up to fibre yet?
None of my friends or family can get it yet, according to the checker, bar the one I previously mentioned.

Was just wondering if anybody's online?
Shame we can't get some kind of official update regarding which parts of Helston are currently hooked up, and some kind of timetable for when the rest of us can jump in. I think that's the worst part right now, lack of info as to what's going on.

I guess we'll all be connected some time.

Great site / forum btw. Thanks.

Ha! Porthleven is our regular holiday place smile .

I doubt if the place we are renting this time will have upgraded from ADSL2+, which it had last year.
