Let me know how you get on! I should get 65mb according to BT, much better than the 10.3mb with Sky! smile
Yeah, will do - fortunately, I have the day off.

10.3? That's pretty low. Currently we get 18.5 down, with 66/20 predicted.

Best I have ever got was 11.5mb with BE. Having said that the BT guy last time said we had a D Pole and all the blocks were corroded so he crimped directly to the cable on the pole from the house.

Excellent stuff!!

If anyone is on cab 5, could you confirm whether or not its live? Initial indications are saying its not.

Re: Brixham - Installed!!

Very nice young chap from OpenReach. Took around an hour from the first call (turns out the phone line was installed by electricians and we didn't have a proper master socket).

All done and this is what I'm getting.

Well pleased, as its pretty much the estimate I was given.

Hi

I am waiting for fibre to go live any day now but also don't have a master socket .

Did they charge extra or did they just have one in the van and fit it?

Cheers smile

No extra charge - the installer replaces any existing socket (normally master) with a filtered unit as part of the normal install.

Nice one! My install date is the 10th May with plusnet! With any luck I should get similar speeds from the same cab smile

Ok so next street down has Fibre and accepting orders but not us. Any Ideas how to find out how to get any updates on the rest of the rollout or is that it. If you don't get it now you don't get it at all? - Update- Post code checked It's 2 doors away frown

Not all the cabinets have been give a fibre twin. Any idea what your PCP number is? If you use the BT Wholesale checker with your phone number, it will tell you. If your number is not recognised (Sky or TalkTalk) you can try your address at the link above.

A friend of mine is on Cab 7 and they've not been upgraded (they live on Doctors Road). I had assumed they were on Cab 5 (Burton Street). I've not looked around to find 7 (yet).

Edit: It's possible the cabinets not done now will be part of the Connecting Devon & Somerset project.
