Good news, my HG533 arrived this AM without any tracking reference in my TT account; so don't panic too much peoples, there is not an HG533 drought as I had privately been worrying about.
Wednesday activation & my (MY!) cabinet, which I photographed yesterday for posterity, the wonderful Wandsworth C40, looks like an old copper-wire cabinet but inside...
Hoping for at least 65MBps as I'm less than 200m from this dull inconspicuous green box.
Well done Talktalk, so far, both original ADSL install & now new fibre install, they have been 100% timely. Probably helps that I'm in London.
Reminds me of my first ADSL install in 1999, my little 'bedroom ISP', we had a leased line (64Kbps - £5000/year) & decided to try the new-fangled ADSL, turned out we were the first install in Wandsworth & the BT engineer came with five other BT engineers, he said this was his & their first install so they were all learning; when it sprung into life (after several phone calls to the exchange) we were all amazed, I think it was 128Kbps down, might have been 256Kbps but certainly no more than that; it constantly dropped & reconnected, we kept the leased line which doubled in speed the next year & went down to 'only' £3000/year or so.
Now I'm just one of the crowd at 65MBps+
