Thanks for the reply...
I was referring to BT, but would be happy to get fibre from CityFibre if they offered a residential product. I can't see one on their website for York - am I missing something?
Postcode: Yep, i'm sure: it's a block of flats immediately east/ next to the sorting office.
Thanks for the roadworks link: Checking it shows a few things going on, some from city fibre and a few from BT. The problem is I am not familiar with the terms: For example this looks promising:
4-13 March Location : (PCP39), NGA RELATED WORKS, JUNCTION CINDER LANE ON, LEEMAN ROAD
At a guess / from googling this is work on Primary Connection Point 39 (i.e.my cabinet?) for Next Generation Access related works (i.e. fibre?) How would this typically relate to getting fibre: would this FTTC work or FTTP work? Does this imply progress soon?
BT Wholesale checker doesn't show anything beyond ADSL availability at the moment.
I just had a look at the same info via the roadworks web site, and whilst FTTC wouldn't appear to be available to you at the moment, there are signs that it's going to be, From
the 4/3/14 to 13/3/14 @ PCP39 NGA related works,
:Install 3 of 2 poly ducts in the footway , Provide 1 cabinet & base ( NGA cabinets)
Which means that you will be getting FTTC if you are connected to that PCP , as to when, that's another question, "How long is a piece of string" even septic peg couldn't give an definate answer maybe 6-12mths maybe less
The cab install is only one part of the job, the fibre has to be blown, usually in existing ducting ,so any bockages can delay this, then there is the 240volt mains power supply , the link cabling btween the pcp and FTTC cab, and of course someone has to sign it off , comission it before they can start to populate it, there's probably other behind the scenes stuff as well
