In reply to a post by Pete__B:
After very bad customer service from TalkTalk a few years ago I will never use them again.
I would rather stay with BT or one of their resellers than give TalkTalk any money whatsoever.


The BT network in that area doesn't even do ADSL2+. Don't confuse TalkTalk wholesale's network with TalkTalk retail - if you bought from Vivaciti for example using the TTwholesale network you wouldn't ever deal with TalkTalk themselves. Like you don't deal with BTwholesale when you buy a BTw powered service.

I feel like a kid before Xmas, just like I've just had the December 1st chocs from the advent calender.

There is a bright, new, shiny cabinet, with cooling vents and a yellow 230v sticker, next to Cab 61 - On Forest road, opposite York Road, in Binfield.

I know it's not tomorrow, but FTTC is on the way!

New cabinets are popping up all over town now laugh

Do they generally wait until all the planned cabinets are installed before upgrading the exchange?

It's always the last few months wait that is the hardest, lol.

and out of town, surrounding villages are nearly all getting them, all connected back to Bracknell, even if a "local" exchange exists!

however, it seems like no one will get it until all are connected, that could be next week, or the BTO backstop of 31st Dec 2012

hopefullly by christmas we will already have forgotten how slow theinternet used to be

Openreach vans doing something to the cabinets today. Looks like they're linking them together?

Hopefully this is the final step smile

Has anybody in Bracknell managed to order yet?

It would be good to see some glimpse of progress.

Nope, the most details information is from the postcode check on the BT wholesale checker: "Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 31st December 2012" with the likely speeds.

My new cabinet is there just waiting for everything to be enabled.
