My exchange (Helensburgh, WSHEL) was included in the phase 10b announcement in September 2012. At that time it was showing an expected activation date of end of 2013.
Subsequently BT announced that they expected to complete the rollout by Spring 2014. I thought this might have brought our date forward, but we remained at end of 2013 in the checker.
But at the time phase 11 was announced in February 2013, I tried the checker again and Helensburgh had been put out to the end of 2014, and there it remains.
I am not sure how this fits with BT's stated intention to complete the rollout by the spring of 2014.
Don't know what to make of this or whether it has happened to other exchanges. I assume BT have no idea when they will upgrade this exchange, and I could understand that, but why would they give a date 9 months beyond the anticipated completion of the rollout?
Currently I get 15MB through O2 LLU but with the acquisition by Sky I am keen to change ISP but nobody else other than TalkTalk can give me more than 8 MB so I will have to hold on until we get FTTC -assuming it becomes available at my cabinet.
I guess I am a little nervous that this strange change to an end of 2014 date might indicate that BT are having second thoughts about bringing fibre here at all....
