Re: New info on BT checker. What do you think it means?

I like how you added 'good will' to the list of reasons smile

Still find it amusing sheringham is enabled.

But that might work out good for me as I wanted to move to norfolk for a long time and now can be near the sea in norfolk with FTTC.


Rather than be adversarial when dealing with BT, such as Haringay, St Albans and Kensington and Chelsea, Sheringham and Cromer councils welcomed BT with open arms, gave them streamlined planning permission process and paid for some of the "unecconomic" areas to be installed at the time of the rollout.

So it isn't really "amusing" just a local council with their heads screwed on with regards on bringing new infrastructure into an area.

sheringham was announced as part of their market towns PR stunt.

cromer I have not heard of any plans to enable.

hey, sorry it was the phone numbers of houses i know to be in my postcode that gave the cabinet in the result, and I already knew that was my cabinet (97%). I also used a phone number of the place I know is in my postcode but uses the other (2%) cabinet.

I just tried the address checker (I didn't see the link previously) and got the same result.

cheers all

well, soon after the 31-Mar-13 date for FTTC availability on the BTw checker, it changed to July-13.

A cabinet appeared near the old one, and 2 or 3 trenches have been dug from the old cabinet and also towards the road or to a lamppost.

Then the new cabinet sat with barricades around it from then (March?) and still just sits there.

The BTw checker now has no mention of FTTC.

Any thoughts?

Is there a smaller power cabinet there? Also is it still covered? Mine has been in with power for at least 6 months and still no FTTC available. Mine also has disappeared off the checker as well.

there's definately no new smaller cabinet next to the new fibre one, and my first thought was the power cable ditch failed or something which is why they barricaded it and left.

If the power cabinet is next to the old cabinet (20m away) then it might be there as I haven't checked the old cabinet since the new one appeared.

I'm wondering who to contact? local councils? parish councils? BT openreach? someone somewhere must know what happened.

Are you saying that as well as the existing PCP, that a power cabinet has been added as well as the FTTC one? That would be the first setup like that we have heard of here.

Yes the copper CAB is on the left side of a junction as you drive out of it. On the right side is the fibre CAB and about a few feet from it is another green box about 2feet tall which I saw Openreach and an electrical company working on together several months ago.

Is the smaller box not related then?
