Re: FTTC in Byfleet (Surrey)


[re: jchamier] [link to this post]
 
Well the FTTC cab is installed! It's one of the smaller ones. I don't think it's actually doing anything yet, but there are more roadworks schedules (by BT) next week for 2 days. Not sure what that is for since it looks like a completed install. Maybe it's to pull the fibre through?

Having said that the date for live has been pushed back (again) from June 2012 all the way to December :/

In your case I hope the roadworks are for the power people. I would expect the fibre is in place the same day, or day after the cab delivered.

The date you quote is that from the BT wholesale checker? December is two jumps forward, the next date everyone should be showing is 30th Sept.

Use your phone number on this one. (unless you have a Sky or TalkTalk line)

The date is from samknows. BT checker doesn't say anything about fttc, just adsl/adsl2

Then the date is for the exchange, and 1 cab to be enabled - and in my case over 2 years difference between the exchange date and my cab date.

Ah Ok hopefully it will be sooner than that for me then!

I found out from the council that the roadworks starting tomorrow are indeed for UK Power Networks to connect the power to the cab

Lucky frown I've registered on roadworks.org but no sign of any works in the cab location. (The installation of the cab was on there).

Just noticed this on the Openreach tweet feed
Superfast broadband has started to become available in BYFLEET

The website says Accepting Orders aswell.

Sweet I thought! However, the checker still says no for me though using the telephone number check, and December 2012 using the postcode check. A bit of a bummer since my cab was one of the first in, and it's been powered up with fans whirring away inside it for about 2 months after the last activity around it finished!

Grr hurry-up and flip the switch!

In Brookwood, it took about 4 weeks from when they said the exchange was accepting orders until I found the first place where they actually reported availability.

Unfortunately, my cabinet took another 3.5 months to become available, and then took another 2 months to actually install.

It's a great test of patience wink

Ouch!

It would be nice to have it in time for Christmas - thinking ahead to the Steam sale and all those cheap games to buy and download (and then not get round to playing for about 3 years!) laugh

At last the checker says I can have infinity!

I was going to just order Infinity 2 from BT. A quick question for those who have done it, and I'm sure there are many. When you go through the order process you have to pick a line rental option. However since I am already a BT customer (not for broadband, just phone) I'm surprised the order process didn't pick that up. I'm assuming it won't place an order for a whole new phone line or something.

Also since I currently pay my rental annually to save money, if I choose that option it says I'll be charged a one-off cost of 129 quid, but I've already made that payment earlier in the year - so I'd be paying it again before my current period has elapsed?!
