Of what I can read it sounds like cabinet 26 is going to have FTTC. Does anybody have this information from BT also?

Can someone advise on when we are likely to get fibre at the Westhoughton Exchange?

I noticed the RFS date has been put back to December 2012

My postcode is BL5 3DH and i think i'm on cabinet P19, which is in phase 8a - what does that mean?

Many thanks
Simon

The phase number indicates when the exchange/cabinet was announced as being within the FTTx project.

Obviously cabinets announced in later phases also tend to be installed later, but it isn't necessarily so. When the announcements are made, some exchanges get planned within the next 3 months, while some are stuck a year away.

In the end it means that the phase number tells you very little about the actual delivery.

The DSL checker here tends to be reasonable about it's estimate. However, it suffers the usual problem that the quarterly holding dates (end March, June, September and December) regularly get pushed back.

You're likely to get more specific detail by emailing this address: [email protected]

If you look at Cab 25, its situated within a couple of meters of a main virgin media fibre optic cab, BT should consider striking a deal to share fibre infrastructure, it would help them tremendously lol

There were some Openreach vans at the top of Park Road on Friday and Saturday, with large rolls of plastic conduit.
