Maybe geeks all live in close proximity, hence the high levels of demand.

In this instance there are relatively few geeks but ADSL tops out at 2Mb for the really lucky ones and it's a relatively affluent part of the area with many professions and people who would work from home if they could.

I give the new card 10 hours. At least 60 connections that I'm aware of are waiting to be ordered, ignoring that the demand I'm not aware of appears to be about the same again going by the first time around.

The first is Plusnet, the 2nd remains to be seen as the first company appears to have made a royal cock up of my order.

I reckon it will available again very soon


I reckon at least 4 cards are full now. Should be some more capacity early March.

Not bad for an area that wasn't economically viable. smile

I never got back to this. I wasn't that far out. On the day the new card went live orders placed at about 12:30pm were getting knocked back.

That would be a really excrement-y sitcom.

do you think you will have a 2nd cabinet within 6 months of the first?

I did email back patricia hewitt who told me a few years ago that she was told my area had no demand and the numbers didnt add up, when FTTC was eventually rolled out 6 months later a 2nd cabinet appeared, so I guess they misjudged demand smile

Didn't they initially put a small cabinet where you were too?

We'll see. It'll certainly be looked at in the near future I imagine.
