In reply to a post by Fibre_fan:
Simon did you see the improved speeds almost immediately?

I'm waiting patiently for the ten days to pass but i am not seeing encouraging results from random bt speed tests at 10 in the morning thus far.

I plan on resetting tonight, just in case, then I plan to start placing calls to bt from the end of the week if no improvements.

Not panicking yet smile lol

The increase was almost immediate but I didn't get the full speed until I rebooted the router. I'm not sure what was going on with it but the download and upload speeds were all over the place until I did.

Cheers thats very helpful I shall do that now myself - I wasn't going to as I'd seen 'some' improvements, but like you, they have still been sporadic.

Rats, rats, and treble rats...

Just found out that the client I was hoping to get onto Infinity is, as BT calls them, EO.

Wellington Square is covered by 'Exchange Only' lines. No cabinet, therefore no FTTC, therefore no Infinity.
Basically anyone in the town centre within range of the exchange will have to wait for FTTP - Probably about 4 years away...

BTW - Does anyone else find the CAPTCHAs on this site virtually impossible to read? I'm on about my 20th refresh so far & the only one I thought I could read I got wrong...

Given the proximity of Wellington Sq to the exchange they should be able to get a very good ADSL2+ service there and you could perhaps look at bonding lines if more speed is needed.

Get yourself a login for the site and you won't see the Captchas. You'll also benefit from less ads, the ability to see updates to threads more clearly, and everybody else can see who is saying what as some threads can get a bit confusing with multiple anonymous posters.

FTTP rollout in Hastings may start at the end of next year depending on the status of the FTTC rollout. The local council stumped up a considerable amount of money for the local "superfast" project. Openreach are also going to be offering Network Rearrangement as an option, but this may only be covered under the BDUK funding, which as I understand it is seen as a possible solution the EO lines problem.

So has anyone who had a 30th September date been able to order recently?

I can only get a mention of FTTC on the wholesale checker if I use the postcode search as I have a Sky landline the telephone checker doesn't work and the address checker doesn't mention FTTC. I'm on cabinet 8 of the Baldslow exchange which has 100% of the lines.

I would have thought it should roll over to end of December by now if it wasn't going to be upgraded but the cabinet I thought was mine that had a big fibre looking cabinet next to it actually turns out to be a Vodafone box frown

Back at parents:

Sky Broadband Unlimited:
4mb down 768k up frown

Waiting on fibre...

It was announced at the end of last month. The target 100% fibre coverage in the town by the end of 2014 could be on the cards still as long a a viable solution to the exchange only lines becomes available.

I found an interesting item hidden away on the council's web site the other day which proposed another target of 100% FTTP availability by the end of 2017. The way it read the proposal was for proper FTTP, as in being able to order FTTP, rather than having to go down the potentially expensive "FTTP on Demand" route which will be available next year.
