I'm new to these forums and found the info here really useful in the pursuit of superfast broadband
Below is an email I have just sent to openreach to ask for advice obtaining broadband.
Does anyone have any additional advice that might help? What I'm really after is something which will let me check when my cabinet is due to be upgraded. I'm aware the openreach marker map will show if it's been delayed, however, I can't find any information at all about when (if at all) my cabinet was ever originally due to be upgraded to fibre.
Many thanks for any assistance anyone can provide.
Dear Sir / Madam,
I currently live at the following address:
My home telephone and broadband is serviced by Sky and I currently have an ADSL2 connection with approximately 15Mbps downstream / 1Mbps upstream.
From searching various websites (Openreach checker, BT checker, ISP availability information etc.) I have researched the following information for my line:
Exchange: Pendleton (Openreach checker suggests the exchange is accepting orders)
Service Type: FTTP
While I have approached many ISPs to obtain either a FTTC or FTTP fibre connection, all have stated fibre is currently unavailable in my area. In addition to this, while I live in a Virgin Media enabled area, the required cabling is not present on my street and therefore my property is deemed unserviceable for cable.
Are you able to provide any indication of when fibre services will be available for my property? Further to this, if fibre isn't available; is it possible to give an indication of what needs to take place in order for it to become available ie. As the information above suggests a FTTP service is likely, is the lack of availability related to the installation of fibre cables from the P64 cabinet to my property?
Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.
