Pegswood FTTC


[link to this post]
 
Hi,

I am trying to find out if and when Pegswood are going to get its cabs upgraded. BT have advised that the exchange is enabled but they do not have a date for the cab.

Is there a way of getting information to see when the planned dates for upgrades will be.

Thanks

What's your post code? I can check to see if it connects to a cabinet being upgraded.

A number of the Pegswood cabinets are being done now as part of the Ashington roll out.

Ashington is due 30th June.

Unfortunately your line is what is known as an "exchange line". This means that you cannot receive FTTC as your line is delivered straight from the exchange rather than via a local cabinet. It appears that your estate is all served by an exchange line, possibly due to the fact that when the estate was developed there was not enough capacity in the existing cabinet that serves nearby streets, so they ran a new cable direct from the exchange.

Of course, this would not be a problem in the past as ADSL and Voice services don't care if you are fed from a cabinet or not. It's only an issue now because FTTC can't be provided but when they built the estate FTTC was not even invented!

Sorry about that!

What about NE616TN ?

Also in pegswood, but I can't be sure if I'm a cabinet, or direct exchange. There seems to be some confusion.

NE61 6TN is the lucky postcode on that estate as it is served by a cabinet. Two in fact, Some are on cab 9 and the others 10, but both are being planned for FTTC so doesn't matter!

What about NE61 6SE - stupidly I have signed up to BT broadband, last week, thinking that the hotspots would be beneficial... Not so fast at all so pretty pointless and the speed at home for broadband is 1.78mbps and has been 0.30mbps - previous provider was a minimum speed of 2.70mbps....

However, as you seem to be in the know re: what lines will receive fibre optic from BT could you kindly let me know your thoughts on mine.

Greatly appreciated smile

Good news, at least in the December data, NE616SE has all lines supplied by PCP 26, which is scheduled in phase 8A (sometime around now) for FTTC, uplift is 14.95 times what you get now, but this is just a guide.

Been checking the wholesale checker every day, for information on my cabinet (NE616TN), and suddenly, today, this appears:

"Your exchange is planned to have ADSL2+ by 31st December 2012. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports an estimated ADSL2+ broadband line speed of 2.5Mbps; typically the line speed would range between 1Mbps and 4Mbps."

Now, this wasn't there in the checker result yesterday, and I could immediately see a difference, but upon eagerly reading the new information, this seems depressingly dull! I hope someone's just added some wrong info!

So presumably 21CN WBC is due then - hence the reference to ADSL2+.

If you are planned to get FTTC there should be an estimated speed and a timescale (30/09/2012) - this should have been there for ages - especially as the exchange was enabled last year.

The checker will not always show a date for FTTC or an estimated speed. This seems to be completely random.

I've been checking in the region of 50 cabinets on two local exchanges which are accepting orders, but none of the cabinets show when FTTC will be available or an estimated speed, some did but next time I've checked there was no mention of FTTC.

More Open Reach work in the village today. I think they were furtling with the pavement access manholes. If I'm right, they'll be looking at a location for the FTTC cab to go with PCP 12, the one in the hedge.

Because I don't see how they're going to get a FTTC cab in the hedge along side 12 smile

Initial data came from leaked BT spreadsheet, then from finding all local cabinets, and then working out addresses to check against each cabinet.

Can't remember the link to the spreadsheet, it's on these forums somewhere - I downloaded a copy.

That is the BT Wholesale checker, and is the best place to tell you if you can currently get FTTC/P, but it won't tell you when, or if you ever will. Sometimes it gives an estimated date, sometimes not. You can use your phone number (without a space) or use your postcode AND house number if not on a BT line.

In reply to a post by Anonymous:

This checks your postcode against the December 2011 spreadsheet and tells you what cabinet your on, or if your on an exchange only line. It will only have postcodes that were scheduled in December 2011

Lots more Open Reach work in the village tonight. Looked like they were feeding some black tubing into the pavement manhole accesses down from P10 (the one in the hedge), just along from the bus stop.

they can dig the place up for two weeks solid if it'll speed things along...

Can only hope all of this is FTTC releated. There's lots of magic yellow paint on the pavements between hedge-cab and cookswell.

Checker now shows this for my postcode, NE616TN

Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 30th September 2012. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed between 32.9 to 37.2 Mbps and upstream line speed between 5.9 to 6.1 Mbps.

That doesn't show up on the wholesale checker for my number, though - only my postcode.

Should I worry?

Do not use the Postcode checker, it will always say available as its based on the exchange, not the cabinet. You need to use the address checker to be accurate. Better still, the phone number checker.

It would help if you register a username - there's been so many post codes mentioned in this thread its difficult to know which is yours smile

If you do have a line direct to the exchange then you're not going to be getting fibre any time soon. You need to wait until BT come up with a solution for direct exchange lines and make it available to ISP's.

The leaked data showed me as 49% probability on 9, and 51% probability on 10, so I guess, as I can't order, that I'm on 10 with you!

I wonder if they'll embed it in the hedge with its companion.

I emailed openreach about P10, and got this:

"Thank you for enquiring about fibre broadband.
When installing fibre broadband we can't necessarily install all the FTTC cabinets for delivery in the same phase. This is the case for your cab, NE/MP 10, which, along with others on Morpeth exchange, will be delivered later this year.
At this point, as we are still in the build phase and I cannot give you a date when your cab is expected to go live.
Keep monitoring our web-site which will give details."

At least this confirms that I'm actually /on/ P10, and that they are getting on with it. The lack of timescales is as infuriating as ever.

Superb!

I'm quite a long way from my cabinet, so I'll likely only get in the region of 20Mb, but now I only get between 750K and 1.5M depending on 'something' so much faster still.

I did see two openreach engineers working on cabinet 10 on Friday for most of the day also. They appeared to be connecting copper cable between the new fttc and existing pcp cabinets. During last week openreach were also running fibre cables along from the exchange in Morpeth and up Whorral bank, not sure if they ran up to the new cabinet or not. BT seem to automatically roll the activation date back by 3 months as it comes close to the end of the quarter. Given the time it took for the other cabinets in the village to be commissioned after fibre cables had been laid and work on the cabinets had been undertaken, it hopefully wont be too long until we have a decent connection speed smile

During last week openreach were also running fibre cables along from the exchange in Morpeth and up Whorral bank, not sure if they ran up to the new cabinet or not. BT seem to automatically roll the activation date back by 3 months as it comes close to the end of the quarter. Given the time it took for the other cabinets in the village to be commissioned after fibre cables had been laid and work on the cabinets had been undertaken, it hopefully wont be too long until we have a decent connection speed smile

From OpenReach via Email:

From the details given, the line quoted is connected to Morpeth cabinet NE/MP 10.

This cabinet is being enabled for FTTC and should be available to order fibre broadband in Mid-November.

YES!

My BT Wholesale Checker page just updated tonight:

For Telephone Number 016705***** on Exchange MORPETH

Your exchange is ADSL enabled, and our initial test on your line indicates that your line should be able to have an ADSL broadband service that provides a fixed line speed up to 1Mbps. However due to the length of your line the 1Mbps service may require an engineer visit who will, where possible, supply the broadband service.


Your cabinet is planned to have WBC FTTC by 31st December 2012. Our test also indicates that your line currently supports a fibre technology with an estimated WBC FTTC Broadband where consumers have received downstream line speed of 32.9Mbps and upstream line speed of 5.9Mbps.

The actual stable line speed supportable will be determined during the first 10 days of use. This speed may change over time, to ensure line stability is maintained.

Actually, do we know (how can we tell) which fibre operators are available from exchange NEMP ?

I think that talktalk will be, and BT. But who else? Don't think Sky do but their web page isn't clear.

To check sky you need to know a phone number on an enabled cabinet. Preferably a BT line rather than something unbundled by another provider.

They have LLU available at the exchange so I'd think they could offer fibre.

For FTTC, any ISP that offers packages based on FTTC will be ably to supply, not just the likes of BT or TalkTalk. I prefer Plusnet, but there are others available.

FTTP is a bit more limited.

That's not entirely true for LLU providers - they need to arrange a connection between their exchange equipment and the BT Openreach side. So there will be Sky/Talktalk unbundled exchanges that don't offer fibre. Sometimes this is just a temporary delay.

**

PlusNet have a 40/250 download limit don't they?

If I want to watch iPlayer and so forth without worrying it seems to be a toss-up between BT and SKY.
(I wouldn't [censored] on Talk Talk)

I'll do some digging but if anyone has a summary of speed vs cost vs download limit for FTTC providers it'd be handy.

Yep, I got that change too. It's terribly exciting, isn't it smile

I'm having a toss up between plusnet and sky I think.

Don't like Plusnet's usage caps.

I don't do much streaming right now, because basically I can't. Even the SD iPlayer won't work on my ADSL.

I'll be streaming HD though, when we get this, so whilst 250GB might seem a lot per month, I don't know how much I'll end up getting through.

Nice dilemma to have though.

I suspect I'll end up going with Plus Net.

Wonder what speed we might get long term?

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Name | 38 mb | Cost p/m | 76 mb | Cost p/m | Wifi hotspots | DL limit.......| Monthly Line R |
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| BT......| Y....... | £18.......| Y..........| £26.........| Y.................| P2P speed.. | £14.69..............|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Sky....| Y........| £20........| Y.........| £30.........| Y..................| None...........| £14.50..............|
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
| +Net...| Y....... | £20.......| Y.........| £23.49.....| Y................ | 250MB.........| £12.99..............|
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


It's a bit tricky this because some of the packages include calls with line rental.

But basically it looks like:

- If you want unlimited but aren't too bothered about p2p during the day go to BT.
- If p2p does bothers you, go to SKY.
- If you think your usage will come in under 250MB per month, go to PlusNet.

I'm sure this will be wrong but that's my initial assessment.
Any more for any more?

Plusnet is 250GB rather than MB smile

Also its unlimited overnight.

I did a quick calculation and watching a 5Mbit stream would give over 100 hours before you hit the 250GB limit. So it depends how much streaming we're actually talking about, and what bit rate the HD stream runs at.

The fact that +Net usage doesn't "count" between Midnight and 8am means I should be able to schedule my Amazon S3 backups for that time, up/downloading 80-150GB of data for backup isn't pretty or fun, but I should be able to do it at full tilt during those hours. Could work out well.

Knowing my luck, they'll use their "We can change anything we want at any time" clause in their contract to remove this usage concession when I'm 2 months into the contract :/

(I don't have any faith at all in ISPs, or telecoms contracts in general).

Been bitten both by BT and Sky in the past, which is why I was considering +Net or Talk Talk.

And i wish I could stop thinking like it's here already. Not long, not long...

And it's only TWO WEEKS away.

I haven't been more excited since I had Home Highway put in, and got my 24x7 free 128Kbps account from Red Hot Ant back in 2000.

Of course in 2000, web pages were about 3K in size, so 128Kbps was awesome fast.

Now, anything less than 8Mbps feels like a one legged slug race.

Has something really gone wrong, or is this what they send out when the MAC gets used?

QUOTE from BE:

----
Looks like something's gone wrong! BT have told us that there is an ongoing cease order for your landline.
The cease date is 31/10/2012. Please check with your telephone provider what the reason is and contact us on 0808 101 3430. Please bear in mind that if our service gets disconnected, we may need to charge you a £25 re-connection fee as we'd need to send a BT engineer to your local telephone exchange.
----


If this is 'normal' I don't want to contact them because I think there's a danger they'll do something to stop the cease.

Preparation:

1) Purchase 200Mbps AV homeplugs to replace old 85Mbps ones (cheap deal, 4xplugs for £46)

2) Purchase 13A socket tripler from Tllo Station

I need 3 power sockets for Infinity, one modem, one router, and one homeplug. Cripes!

I've done some measurements on the AV200 home plugs and found I get a 45Mbps throughput from my NAS, so that will be /just/ fast enough to share out the predicted 30-something Mbps Infinity. Only just mind. So bear in mind if you get anything faster than 40Mbps from your FTTC, and you use Homeplugs, you'll want at least 500Mbps variants.

Getting everything lined up for install day.

Can either the modem or home hub be wall mounted? I have my Be Box screwed to the wall at the moment.

I could do that, but I only just upgraded from 85Mbps ones to 200s.

It's quite expensive as I need 6. Kind of fell for the hype thinking that 200s would be fast enough. And a deal came up on 200Mbps twin packs for £28 a little while back. Still nearly a hundred quid though.

They kind of are, I was only expecting mid 30s Mbps from my Infinity, but turns out at the moment getting 40-mumble.

I measure raw throughput with dd/netcat to my NAS over these things at 46Mbps, so unless my broadband gets significantly faster, I dont' think I need to upgrade the home plugs. It's just good enough.

I might make more use of Wireless N.

Our house has separate upstairs and downstairs rings in the CU so I suspect this to be the cause. 45M is just about fast enough. I don't have a wireless N device to try it with, see if it goes faster.

Anyone on p10 (or, I guess other Pegswood cab) have an outage today?

I came back home to find the internets DOWN

Only had the thing a few days. Seems to be back now, but no way of telling what happened.

I've been connected today along with 1 other that I know of.
On P10 so maybe the guy had to switch it off for a while to connect us.
Seems plausible.

Getting half what my SKY router says I should.

Off to the SKY forums for me...


Hi dave have you tried different speed checkers as I have roughly the same results (21 Mbps download) as you using the thinkbroadband speed checker .
With others I'm getting close to 38 Mbps download.
I'm with sky too.
I'll refer you to this.

I find the speedtest.net one pretty good.
