Re: Hurstpierpoint, West Sussex Cab 10 *DELETED*


[re: tbailey2] [link to this post]
 
Are you checking your phone number or address? Don't use just the postcode as that gives inaccurate results. How far are you from cab 2? Is it possible that you are too far from the cab to benefit from faster speeds in which case that is possibly why FTTC isn't being shown as an option.

Cab went line 13th Feb this year

The BN6 9DT is 99% connected to cab 2, so some addresses may not be.

Have tried four or five addresses and cab is not showing up enabled, so probably a case of capacity issues, i.e. waiting on new line card

Thanks but I'm not checking my phone number or postcode and I don't know where Cab 2 is. That's what I am trying to find out for someone else who has asked me... I'm on Cab 4.

She may well be too far away as her ADSL speed is only a couple of Mbps. However, the exchange is a long way away and the cab may be nearer - apparently it is FTTC enabled and other people in what is a small village to the west of Hurstpierpoint say they can get 80/20.

Question is where is cab 2 as that may well answer the question. Other phone numbers nearby also say no so long line length is a distinct possibility. There are at least two people on here who know the local cabs and I was hoping one of them might have an idea- partial for instance.

Thanks

Thanks Andrew, my last reply overlapped yours.

Albourne is very small and must be a small cab to have filled already if it is in the village itself.... Mine has 50% take up since live on the same date and for 10% of exchange lines on the PCP itself. Google shows the exchange is 2.8 miles from the location (by road) which likely explains the low ADSL rate.

Edit: the line number she gave shows as on Cab 2 as do other numbers supplied as neighbours.

I'd also like to know where cab 10 is to help someone else (see back a few posts). but that is almost certainly a line length problem...

In reply to a post by MrSaffron:

Andrew

I've been given some more telephone numbers and postcodes in Albourne, only one telephone number of which is FTTC enabled at BN6 9BY (Postcode checker shows as not enabled though).

Comparing that postcode with the original request one, it is about 1km away from the original location but also nearer the exchange in an E/W straight line. Looking at the sl better ADSL figures and the poor fibre estimates of the enabled postcode, I'd guess that the cab is on the East (Hurstpierpoint exchange) side of the A23 (this divides the two villages with Albourne on the West side) and thus too far away to provide fibre services to the original location as some guessed. But I could be wrong...

FWIW to visualise it, here is a MAP of the three locations - Green is the Exchange, Yellow is the Enabled location and Red is the original (not enabled) location.

BN6 9BY
Telephone Number ***** on Exchange HURSTPIERPOINT is served by Cabinet 2 
FTTC Range A (Clean) 	        17.8 	11.9 	1.2 	0.8 	-- 	Available

WBC ADSL 2+ Annex M 	Up to 2.5 	Up to 0.5 	1 to 4 	Available
ADSL Max 	Up to 2 	-- 	1 to 3.5 	Available
WBC Fixed Rate 	2 	-- 	-- 	Available

ADSL Max 	Up to 1.5 	-- 	1 to 2.5 	Available
WBC Fixed Rate 	2 	-- 	-- 	Available
Fixed Rate 	2 	-- 	-- 	Available

We still need the actual cab location to confirm this!

Close to where the old Kings Head pub in Albourne was I believe. Google Maps is not good for buildings that are no longer standing, apparently new development replaced it

Okay that's now the B2118 renamed due to the new A23 running nearby below it but it is at the extremity of Albourne.

The building is still there (notice the copper dome on the roof) but is not a pub. Can't see a cab around though....

Thanks both. I looked there but missed it ...

So that I think says why there is no FTTC at the original postcode, it's just too far away. The guy with 80/20 probably lives the other side of the main road or just down the road into the village!

Thanks again
