They have the fibre manifold, I just checked on Google Maps, they seem to of had it since 2012, however 2012 was the last map update so I cannot see if they now have any cables coming out of it.

thanks for all the answers guys, yes the house across the street is on the same pole and has fttp - the engineers that were working on it said they were "renewing" the fibre manifold, not sure what he meant by that so asked him instead if he was the cause of my phone line being disconnected, to which he replied "not my problem" then drove off. such a nice chap.

door number is 23

if this recent "renewal" doesn't make it available to me i'll definitely get in touch with the ISP and MP if the wonderful Sky cutomer support doesn't sort it out.

about the openreach engineer telling me i could only get it if i changed to BT, was he just talking out of his [censored] or not?

BT Retail (Consumer), I think Zen, and Plusnet are the only well-known ISPs to offer it. Possibly Claranet.

The others can, but the potential number of customers doesn't justify the training and such costs so far as the accountants are concerned.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

if the area is enabled and yopu are with a Service provider that does not offer the product you then have a choice to make

always use the BTWholesale DSL checker and use your address as that will tell you what available at your premise rather than what your service provider wants to offer you

You won't get it on Sky, Sky don't offer FTTP.

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.
Divide your IP Profile by your Sync Speed and the answer is 0.9669 (with) or 0.9679 (without)

These are the homes that are listed that can and cannot get FTTP:
[YES]
16, 20, 21, 24

[NO]
18, 22, 23, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 37

I got the above info from the BTW DSL Checker, not check BTOR's Where and when page yet.

*** update ***
Nope the Where and when page is the same.

yes 24 is on the same pole as my house. so potentially i can get it but i have to kick up a fuss? or is that set in stone until they decide to change something?

Were those on two different cabinets?
