I then noticed from this discussion that I may have FTTC locally so I had a go at Eclipse again and I now await installation of Fibre on April 15. I will post the result.

Did it go okay??

Hi All,
Im in Albourne and about to order Fibre - anyone mind if i drop into this discussion?

Currently with talk talk,, but possible going to change, not sure I believe any of the quoted speed. Normally get about 4MB / 1MB on standard BB, so slow

Hi

Have you checked your speed estimate HERE ? Make sure you use this one with your own telephone number rather than an address or postcode checker. Paste the results if you can, less your telephone number, as it will help others looking for speed estimates.

3 months exactly now from install. I started at 56Mbps download and that seems to have stabilised currently at 42/10 after the effects of crosstalk and some standing interference. My original BT estimate was 35/8 but that has been revised - UPWARDS to 42/10 which is what it is currently. Others immediately locally to me are much the same and I'm about 800m from the cabinet.

TalkTalk don't have a very good reputation, I think they were voted the worst ISP?? I'm with Plusnet and haven't had any problems (so far anyway), At least they have UK support who seem to know what they are doing most of the time, although others will disagree. Was with Zen.

Good luck!

Hi Tony,

I don't think the OP is going to be able to put his number into the checker because he's on LLU with Talktalk and that checker only deals with BT wholesale ISPs. The address checker (NOT postcode) should give a good indication, though.

Thanks
Tim

Okay, good point. There is a link to the Address checker on the Telephone checker page as it happens... For me, it gives a very marginally higher speed for the address checker vs telephone no.

For those in College Lane and around in the nearby Hurst Wickham area / Highfield Drive and its offshoots fed by PCP4 directly opposite Lynton Close..

Talking to an Openreach engineer earlier, he says the cab is now about 50% full with 60 fibre installations. PCP4 itself has some 600 lines which seems a pretty low takeup since live day on the 14th Feb?

My own line has now stabilised for the past few weeks moment at around 42/10 after starting at 56/12 3 months ago. A lot of cross talk and high error seconds dropped it pretty quickly as installs came on.

The BT Telephone Checker initially had the line at 35/7 at best on a clean line - however that estimate has now been revised to 43/10 this week, pretty close to what I actually have.

Edit: Also I should mention that one of the BT spreadsheets said FTTC/P for this exchange - just to check I tried to get it via the plusnet trial offer - but they confirm it is NOT currently available unfortunately.

Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex Cab 10


[re: tbailey2] [link to this post]
 
Does anyone in the know out there have any FTTC status for Cab 10 in Hurstpierpoint please?

It's not shown for the number I've been asked about as having FTTC and it's on a farm site out in the sticks NW of the college in Danworth Lane. There are a number of businesses there that would like some better speeds... They are at the low end of the estimates I'd guess

Telephone Number ****** on Exchange HURSTPIERPOINT is served by Cabinet 10 
WBC ADSL 2+ 	Up to 7 	-- 	4.5 to 11 	Available
WBC ADSL 2+ Annex M 	Up to 7 	Up to 1 	4.5 to 11 	Available
ADSL Max 	Up to 5.5 	-- 	4 to 8 	Available
WBC Fixed Rate 	2 	-- 	-- 	Available
Fixed Rate 	2 	-- 	-- 	Available


TIA

Is anyone on Cab 2 in Albourne and do you have FTTC please? Depending where I look BT show the postcode BN6 9DT as not available whereas the alc.im site says it has been Accepting Orders since Feb.

And how many Cabs are there in Albourne? Can't be that many at a guess.

TIA
